Pevril of the Peak

Sitting on an island of land between Chepstow Street and Bridgewater Street this tile clad Victorian pub certainly stands out from its surroundings. The building dates back to the early 19th Century but the cladding was added in 1900. The name is said to commemorate a horse-drawn stagecoach that ran between Manchester and London. Ironically though, the pub, by the same name in Derbyshire, claims that its name came from a book of the same name by Sir. Walter Scott that references Peveril Castle near Castleton in Derbyshire.

This Peveril of the Peak is regarded as a popular pub with connections to a number of Manchester celebrities who have enjoyed a drink there.
