About the Pub

Historic Interest

Now known as The Queens, it was originally built as a residence for a local lace designer Edward Mason. However, soon after moving in, Mason acquired a licence and opened as the Queen's Hotel around 1881 or 1882. A clubroom extended for the whole length of the front of the first floor, which was typical for pubs in the area which issued checks or tokens - of which the Queen's Hotel was one. After the death of his first wife, Mason married the sister-in-law of Samuel Theodore Bunning, former station master at Beeston and a rising star within the Beeston Brewery Company Limited. Bunning personally acquired the Queen's Hotel and for the years 1907 to 1913 the brewery's Annual General Meeting was held in the clubroom. Shipstones acquired the Beeston Brewery Co in February 1922. However, the Queen's Hotel did not pass to Shipstones until May 1928, shortly after Bunning's death, when it was bought for £537 13s 11d. plus £32 3s 7d for the unexpired licence. ( On the night of the 7th/8th April 1941 the Queen's Hotel was damaged by incendiary bombs dropped across Beeston by the Luftwaffe, one of which caused considerable damage to the front of the building. Despite wartime shortages and restriction, repairs costing £585 were put in place almost immediately. ( As at November 2017, the freehold for the Queens (NT342443) was held by Punch Partnerships (PML) Limited [Reg. No. 3321199]. This was transferred to Patron Capital on the 5th March 2018.
