The Chorlton Road Hotel was attached to the Chorlton Road Brewery and opened in 1857 at No.69 Chorlton Road in Hulme [2].  The brewery was on the corner of Denton Street and Chorlton Road and was owned by Titus Smalley from the 1860s, them William Dockray who sold most of his pubs to Groves & Whitnall.  It was renamed the Carlton Brewery in the 1890s when Charels Robinson took over and brewing continued at Chorlton Road until 1938.

The Chorlton Road Hotel, on the corner of Clayton Street, remained as such until it closed in 1970 having been a Smalley, Dockray and finally Scottish Brewery house [1].  Part of Scottish Breweries, formed by mergers in 1931, was the William Youngers Brewery and the Chorlton Road Hotel is shown here in 1961 undergoing a facelift as a Youngers house.  The location of the brewery and pub was on the corner of what is now Bankwell Street and Chorlton Road.
