Queens Arms Inn, Liverpool Road

Further down Liverpool street, and laying claim to be the official railway pub, was the Queens Arms Inn. Now on this corner of Liverpool Road and Potato Wharf is the modern Castlefield Hotel (which itself has a bar serving some real ales, but at the moment, our rules state no hotels). However, in the 1800s there was no such street as Potato Wharf and the Queens Arms was on the corner of a passage which opened out onto the long-gone Staffordshire Warehouse yard which sat across the twin pronged Castlefield Wharfs.
