Tesco has released pictures of its first-ever pub to open in honor of the coronation.

The King in the Castle in Farringdon, central London, is preparing to open its doors this morning for two days ahead of Saturday’s big ceremony.

All proceeds from sales go to the supermarket’s charity partner, The Prince’s Trust, which supports young people across the UK and was set up by the King in his former role.

The pub is decked out in Tesco paint, bunting, flowers and of course supermarket food and drink.

The brand has encouraged people to “do good by going to the pub”.

Alessandra Bellini, Chief Customer Officer at Tesco, said: “The coronation is a historic moment and we want to help our customers celebrate it.

“One of the most enduring parts of British culture, pubs have traditionally been an important part of local communities and so a pub seemed like the perfect way to bring people together to celebrate this special occasion and enjoy delicious food.

“In addition, we are donating £250,000 from the sale proceeds of our limited edition Coronation range in store, as well as all pub proceeds, to the Prince’s Trust so we can all enjoy food that both tastes good and is good for you.

“Tesco and the Prince’s Trust have been working together for five years so this is a wonderful opportunity for us to highlight the incredible work they are doing and to help them support young people across the UK for many years to come.

“Whether you celebrate the coronation at home with your own party or come to our pub, we have made sure that everyone can enjoy a royally good weekend.”

The daily menu at the pub includes a royal high tea, serving a tea-inspired cocktail in a teapot, along with cakes, scones and classic sandwiches.

Coronation-themed Pfluger platters, sandwiches and a vegan Prince’s Crust cake are also on offer.

The evening menu will be “gastropub style” and will feature Camilla’s King Prawn Curry, a seared “sirloin steak” and cocktails including Bellinis and Gin Martinis.

The menus were inspired by things rumored to be Charles’s preferences, including “flexitarian” eating.

Meals are said to be affordable, with snacks costing from 50p and full meals up to £10.

Table reservations sold out almost immediately, but walk-ins are still available.

For those who can’t make it, Tesco has posted the recipes for some of the dishes to be served at the pub online. Some of the party items, like pork pies and trifle, will also be available in stores.
