  Peveril of the Peak
by Balam

Peveril of the Peak is truly a famous Manchester pub built around 1829, It is said that it was named after the stagecoach which made the run to London but it could also have been named after Sir Walter Scott’s novel of the same name. There are also claims that the Pub is haunted.
The exterior of the building is decorated with distinctive ceramic tiles in a sort of Green colour, it is a , Grade II Listed Building that has had a great deal of new building taking place around it including the Bridgewater Hall which is practically next door.
It has 3 rooms around a large central bar; the interior is traditionally decorated with more ceramic tiles, wood and some leaded stained glass.
It serves good Real Ales and has one of the best selections of Whiskey you will find in a Manchester Pub .
Food is served between 12noon and 2.30pm.

Tuesday nights are great as they have Live Irish music and lots of singing and dancing

I am not really sure about the opening Hours as I went in just after 4pm on Monday 06/04/09 to be told that it closed at 4pm.
