First UK pub named after Princess Charlotte

The first pub in the UK to have been named after the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s second child, Princess Charlotte, has opened in Essex.

The Princess Charlotte, part of McMulen’s Chicken and Grill pub chain, opened this week in Colchester, two years later than planned and the birth of Princess Charlotte in 2015 due to a planning delays.

Managing director Heydon Mizon said: “We aim to treat every guest like Royalty at the Princess Charlotte and this would of course include the Princess herself.

“The pub had been due to open shortly after Princess Charlotte was born, the baby wasn’t at the mercy of a lengthy planning delay and so arrived on time, the pub however was significantly overdue.”

The newly built pub is the second of the brewery’s named after a royal baby with The Prince George recently opening in Milton Keynes, Bucks.

“McMullen’s have been brewing beer, operating pubs and looking after our pubs for over 190 years,” added Mizon. “With this in mind, we try to select names that are interesting, relevant to the time or place that a pub is built and that will stand the test of time.”

McMullen’s Brewery was founded in 1827 in Hertford and today operates around 130 pubs across across London and its surrounding counties, Cambridgeshire and Oxfordshire.
