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 wines, local beers, a log fire and we offer antipasto platters – available anytime. We also have a Steak night every Thursday – 2 steak dinners and a bottle of house wine for £25. Call us on 844143 or 420511 to book a table.

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.
