Open in Farringdon from today (4th May) for the two days leading up to the Coronation, all proceeds will go to the supermarket’s charity partner, The Prince’s Trust, which was founded by The King in his former role as The Prince of Wales to support young people across the UK

The Coronation-themed menu, which features products from the supermarket’s limited-edition Coronation food range, has been curated by the Tesco Executive Chef team, with highlights including Camilla’s King Prawn Curry, The Prince’s Crust Pie and a trifle-inspired bellini

Open today and tomorrow (4th and 5th May), the pub offers a Coronation-themed menu featuring products from the Tesco limited-edition Coronation food range. Available in-stores nationwide now, those hosting their own celebrations at home can enjoy party staples including pork pies and trifles, with Tesco donating £250,000* from proceeds of the range to The Prince’s Trust.

The pub offers both daytime and evening menus. Highlights from the daytime menu include a Royal High Tea, with a tea-inspired cocktail served in a tea pot, along with cakes, scones, and both King Prawn and runny egg Burford Brown sandwiches, with the latter being a nod to the King’s rumoured favourite sandwich and love of boiled eggs.

All the wines come from Tesco’s usual excellent selection, and at prices well below usual pub charges.

Other daytime highlights include Coronation-themed Ploughman’s platters, sweet treats, snacks and nibbles. Larger bites on offer include a Coronation King Prawn Sandwich, and a plant based ‘Prince’s Crust’ Pie, named after the supermarket’s charity partner, The Prince’s Trust, whom all proceeds from the pub will be going to. The choice of filling is a reference to the King’s rumoured fondness for flexitarian eating.

In the evening, guests can enjoy a gastropub-style elevated dining experience, with a selection of starters, mains, desserts and cocktails. Highlights from the evening menu include Camilla’s King Prawn Curry, in reference to the Queen Consort’s rumoured partiality for spicy food, along with a Roast SIR’loin Steak and cocktails that include the King’s rumoured favourite tipple, a gin martini, served with a crown-shaped lemon twist, as well as a trifle-inspired bellini.

Prices start from just 50p for sweet treats and £1 for nibbles, along with daytime options such as £8 Ploughman’s platters, and a Royal High Tea and teapot cocktail for just £10 per head. While evening options include Camilla’s King Prawn Curry served with fragrant basmati rice for £6, and a Roast ‘SIR’loin Steak with Balmoral Sauce served with Jersey Royals, onion rings, Tenderstem broccoli and roasted vine tomatoes for just £10.

Capturing the celebratory mood of the nation, The King in the Castle is decked out in hanging floral displays and bunting throughout the venue. Outside the venue, there  sampling station for passers-by to try bite-sized portions of the menu, such as the Coronation King Prawn Sandwich and Coronation-themed cupcakes.

So that even those who can’t make it there in person will be able to enjoy a taste of the menu at home, Tesco has released the recipes for some of the dishes set to be served at the pub, including Camilla’s Curry, The Prince’s Crust Pie, and Royal High Tea.
