Royal Veteran, Stanley Street



Royal Veteran, Stanley Street, Salford. (c) From the Andy Robertson Collection.

On the corner of New Quay Street and Stanley Street (south of the Mark Addy), just over the Irwell into Salford, is this large old building known as the Ralli Buildings or Riverside House. The 1848 map of New Bailey and Ordsall shows that this was the site of the original Royal Veteran Tavern, as it was then, on the corner of Irwell Street and Stanley Street [1]. It was run by Daniel Hodson, who went on to run a Temperance Hotel in Bank Row, Chapel Street near the cathedral [2].

The old Royal Veteran building standing today probably dates from around 1860s when the New Bailey Prison which loomed over it was demolished in 1868 [2], and the railway built. You can see the Royal Veteran Tavern on the Ordnance Survey map scan halfway down this page; bottom left. The Royal Veteran survived until before the Second World War and was a Swales Brewery pub when it closed (veteran drinkers of Manchester will recall "Swales swill").

After closing the old pub appears to have spent time as a workshop and place for religious gathering. Although 5 years ago it looked derelict and destined for demolition as part of the Chapel Street regeneration scheme, it has since had a spruce up, so this fine building may have a future after all. As a pub, unlikely, but never say never.

    The building on the 1848 map is clearly not the building that stands there today. At that time the pub was run by Daniel Hodson, who went on to run a Temperance Hotel in Bank Row in Chapel Street by the RC Church (now Cathedral). The current Royal Veteran building probably dates from around 1860 when the New Bailey Prison opposite was demolished and the railway built.

  2. I never had a Scooby this was a pub. Always found this a fascinating building - really beautiful example of Victorian architecture inspired slightly by Moorish design. But no way did I realise it had been an alehouse.

  33. Elon Musk, Free Speech and Twitter Deal – Why This Raises More Questions than Offers Answers

    After buying 9.2 per cent stake in micro-blogging site Twitter in early April, the world’s richest man Elon Musk is now about to buy the entire stake in the company for a whopping $44 billion. Soon, Twitter is likely to be owned by Elon Musk, or is it? A deal that was all but done, before Musk “temporarily put it on hold”, to ascertain the veracity of a number of “fake” or “spam” accounts on the social media platform. But is this an avenue being explored to get out of the mega deal preceded by acrimonious attempts to ‘save’ the company by existing investors?
