Robert Peche (died 1126) was a medieval Bishop of Coventry.

Peche was elected about January 1121, and consecrated on 13 March 1121. He died on 22 August 1126.[1] Little is known of his background, and his actual activity while bishop remains obscure.[2] It is probable that Richard Peche, who became bishop of Coventry from 1161 to 1182 was his son.[3]
