This Grade II-listed building, named after a stagecoach renowned for the speed at which it made its trips from Derbyshire, is arguably Manchester's most distinctive pub. Once you've passed the green-tiled exterior, you can see all sorts of people inside, at all times, but it gets particularly packed on Fridays and Saturdays, and Manchester United fans are in abundance on match days.
The pub is also said to have its very own ghost. The brews vary, but favourites include Boddingtons, Marston's Pedigree, Timothy Taylor Landlord and Bombardier. There's a pool table in the cramped back room, and darts and table-football in the front. Look out for occasional folk nights.
