The Royal estate – which is privately owned by the Queen – plans to lease out the vacant Victorian building for conversion into a pub while retaining the freehold.

If the plans go-ahead, it will mean that the Queen will have her own watering hole less than a mile away from Sandringham House, while it will also be a new local for Prince William and his family, who have their country retreat just across the fields at Anmer Hall.

Estate agents Landles describe it as ‘a rare opportunity for the right operator to develop a new destination public house with restaurant and letting room potential.’

The 4,350 sq ft building was the home of the Sandringham Club which was opened in 1884 by the Queen’s great grandfather King Edward VII when he was Prince of Wales.

It is opposite St Peter and St Paul’s church in the village of West Newton where the Queen usually worships once a year, and the church hall where she attends Sandringham Women’s Institute meetings.

Local villagers are said to have given a mixed reaction with some concerned about cars clogging up local roads and others looking forward to having a pint on their doorstep.

Landles describes the former club as being ‘full of character and occupying an elevated position’ with ‘tremendous panoramic views over the adjacent farmland and the wide blue skies of North West Norfolk.’
