The "Rovers Return", which is seen early on, is a real pub in Manchester/Salford, and is located at 89-91 Chapel Street. The real pub resembles the one in the movie, and not the one many believe to be the fictional one from the long running television soap Coronation Street (1960). The real pub would have definately been around during when this movie is set.
