Welcomes You

The Central Hotel, established around 1608, is one of the first pubs ever recorded on the Isle of Man, once one of sixteen pubs in this little narrow street. It would have had maybe a barrel of homemade beer and a barrel of rum (probably contraband) in the front room.

Old newspaper cuttings tell of an entrance to a smugglers tunnel that ran from the back door of The Central and down the street to connect with other pubs to avoid the customs men.

 

The Central retains its Olde Worlde charm, and has a well stocked bar with a great selection of local beers, a log fire and we serve food over the summer months.

 

Have you found us yet?

Peel is a quintessential small fishing town, with lots of narrow winding streets that reward a slow wander around. You may just stumble across us tucked down in Castle Street, or you could just check out the map at the bottom of our site.

“Surprising!”

The Central is a little, historical pub tucked down a side street in Peel and although we have been visiting the Isle of Man on a regular basis for some time we have only just found this little gem.

Service is excellent and the owners are extremely friendly and accommodating. For a little back street pub the food is excellent, very tasty good sized portions at reasonable prices. Definitely a place we will be returning to.

“Awesome!!!!”

What a great little find. Don't be fooled by the modest exterior, this is a great little pub. Food is fantastic, served by locals who know their stuff about Peel and the Isle of Man. Had a great evening here and would thoroughly recommend it.

“A Hidden Gem”

The half hour bus ride from Douglas to Peel is well worth it, if only for a meal and drink at the Central!

“We just had to go in!”

We stumbled on the Central by just wandering around and, when we saw it had been there for over 400 years, felt we just had to go in!

“A very happy vibe”

It reeks of age, history and charm, and the locals in high spirits are an entertainment in themselves - a very happy vibe was present throughout the pub.

“Good beer ”

I've been a fan of REAL beer for some 20 years and i stumbled across this place with the wife whilst sheltering from the rain storm the island graced us with! Anyway what a blessing it was the fire was lit and the owner Marcus was welcoming and the beer was brilliant we stayed for hours ! Will be back.
