This old boozer was formerly known as the Chorlton-on-Medlock Arms in the 1860s, and the Halliday Inn in the 1880s, before settling for the Rusholme Road Inn for the remainder of its life. The Wilsons house closed in 1962 on Rusholme Road which used to pass from Oxford Road to the meeting of Downing Street and Ardwick Green. The Rusholme Road Inn was on the corner of Barlow Street on the north side of Rusholme Road, just off Downing Street - this location today is taken by Kale Street.
