About the Pub

Historic pub, just off Maid Marian Way.

Historic Interest

Formerly a Home Ales pub, the Royal Children is a 1933-34 rebuild of an earlier pub of the same name on the same site (Whitworth 2010), although Holland-Walker writing in 1928 puts the rebuild several years before his book was written (www.nottshistory.org.uk). This suggests a mid-1920's date for the present building. Popular legend has it that it was named for the children of the then Princess, later Queen Anne, the daughter of James II. The story goes that they lodged at the old inn on the site in 1688 (Whitworth 2010). Whalebone on display was formerly displayed outside the building and was used as a sign to indicate the availability of whale oil for sale on the premises. The Royal Children is in Nottingham City Council's Old Market Square Conservation Area. In 1876, the Royal Children was a fully licensed establishment under victualler Jas. Morley. The cave cellars measure 6m x 9m and are referenced as MNU 357 and BGS Se2. [Nottingham City Council; Bridge Ward / Nottingham South Parliamentary Constituency]
