Even the Queen enjoys a tipple. So much so, HRH is opening a pub on the Sandringham Estate in Norfolk. And if you fancy serving her in person? You’re in luck: they’re hiring someone to run the boozer. 

We’re not sure the Queen is into real ale and craft lagers, but the royal estate is looking for someone with a load of hospitality experience to apply. The pub itself is on the site of a former social club, which was opened by the Queen’s great-grandfather King Edward VII. It had to close down, however, after Covid decimated its membership. Now estate agents Landles are looking for someone with a strong CV to take it over and make the place feel busy again.

It’s a pretty impressive building: dating back to 1844, it overlooks the church that the monarch visits while she’s in town. Prince William and his family have a countryside retreat a few fields over, too, so they could be among the regulars. 

The former club is ‘full of character and occupying an elevated position’ with ‘tremendous panoramic views over the adjacent farmland and the wide blue skies of north-west Norfolk’, according to the estate agent. The pub will be owned by the Queen, of course, but if you fancy being the tenant, find out everything you need to know on the official property listing here
