Does any one remember the coach house - wicker

Recommended Posts

Don't recall the Coach House (or Peacock) ever becoming a bank. There was however, a bank on that row between Stanley Street and Wicker Lane, the one with the big shiny stainless steel front door. Might that be the same place ?

 

it did'nt become a bank , it was converted from a bank into a restaurant

1964 to 1970 Molly Mullvaney worked at market place mum and dad had a pub

 

If I remeber rightly they had the Ellesmere pub then moved to one in Beighton I think

Can you recall what year it went from a bank to a restaurant? (just curios).

It was ealy 80s , the people who bought the peacock also took over the old bank and extended the restaurant and turned it into The Coach House , iit was deffinately before 1984 , if I remember rightly the people who opened it also owned the Venus Steak place on the moor

I had my 21st birthday party at the Old Coach House back in 1981.

I had to book it several months in advance because it was so popular.

A lovely meal and then dancing upstairs.

I still have the photos of that night somewhere............

My mum & dad used to take me to the peacock in the 60s. I used to go to the Old Coach House when I was older enjoyed them both.

Had my wedding breakfast there on 30 Mar 1984. Only seven of us. My husband and I always ordered Mixed Grills - the best! 

Also, often went there for office dos. 

 

The Peacock was the first Chinese Restaurant I ever ate in.
