Royal Children Nottingham

Striking, Historic Site

The Royal Children is located right in the centre of the thriving city of Nottingham. Many new businesses are flocking to the surrounding area, meaning passing footfall is high and will continue to grow. Located next to The Robin Hood Experience and Nottingham Castle, The Royal Children will also be able to attract visiting tourists looking for a historic local pub. Also nearby is a large residential area, offering the incoming licensee the opportunity to cater to a wide variety of customers both day and night.

The Royal Children is a historic pub with lots of character and striking exterior. The proposed new design aims to enhance this beautiful venue, uncovering its historic features whilst giving it a fresh new look with a trendy rustic twist. The pub will receive a complete refurbishment, including a quirky faux shop front in the bar servery, that will serve fresh, homemade pies throughout the day. Once transformed, the pub will attract a younger demographic, as well as locals and visitors looking to enjoy a great craft and cask ale offer, as well as the simple delicious food.

Trading Area & Facilities

The bar servery will be fully refurbished to become a focal point in the room, with a distressed, rustic design. Works will include forming a new open pass within the backfitting to allow food to be served from the reconfigured kitchen. The trade area will be redecorated to provide a lively atmosphere for customers to enjoy a quality drink or bite to eat in. An attractive contrast of industrial and exposed finishes will add warmth and authenticity to the space. Works will include adding a variety of furniture, including long banquette and individual sharing tables, constructed from distressed timber and wrought metal.

Other internal works will include:
  • Introducing poseur height tables and stools to the area, perfect for casual occasions.
  • Adding an eclectic mix of seating to the space, including bar stools, barrel chairs and armchairs finished in a variety of dark paint and distressed leather.
  • Installing two new curved feature booths, upholstered in a deep leather button back design.
  • Removing most areas of fixed seating, creating a more versatile space.
  • Adding a new drinks shelf and screen to the AWP machine.
  • Retaining and polishing the existing timber and flagstone flooring.
  • Installing a new decorative feature wall in a vintage design, relating to the area's local history.

Externally, the works will include a new signage and lighting scheme. There is no car park. Our vision for outside facilities is that there will be a two tiered outdoor area. Currently there is no outdoor area at all and this is what we are creating including vision from street at ground level.

Applicants should be aware that all refurbishments are subject to final board approval which will be determined as part of the leasing process.

Where a significant investment is made in a pub by Star Pubs & Bars, an "Investment Exemption" will be required. The exemption means that the option of a Market Rent Option lease won't be available at rent review for a period of up to seven years for this site, as per The Pub Code (2016).
