This pub was named after Sir Robert Peel (1788-1850), British prime minister and founder of the modern Conservative party. 

Most of the streets were named after prominent Liberals - an exception was made in the case of Peel Street as in 1846 Prime Minister Robert Peel persuaded Parliament to institute the policy of free trade, resulting in a general abolition of export duties - the so called "Corn Laws".
