Pop -up boozer promises to offer punters an ‘affordable’ coronation-themed food and drink menu
Tesco is to launch its first ever pub in central London as part of its celebrations to mark the coronation of King Charles III.
The supermarket will open pop-up The King in the Castle in Cowcross Street, Farringdon, from midday to 11pm next Thursday and Friday (May 4 and 5).
Running at the premises of popular city pub The Castle, it promises “an affordable option” for Londoners looking to kickstart their bank holiday celebrations early.
The building will be decked out in flags, bunting and floral displays, with a special coronation-themed menu featuring ‘Prince’s crust pie’ and ‘Camilla’s King prawn curry’.
Usual pub drinks will be available including beers on tap, wines, spirits, and cocktails including a trifle-inspired bellini.
Research by Tesco suggests one in five Londoners cite “going to the pub” as their favourite way to come together with friends and family.
Tesco Chief Customer Officer Alessandra Bellini said: “As one of the most enduring parts of British culture, pubs have traditionally been an important part of local communities and so a pub felt like the perfect way to bring people together to mark this special occasion.
Bookings for the The King in the Castle are open now via OpenTable. There will also be space for walk-ins.
