The chance to discuss the brutal reality of AFC Richmond’s relegation at The Prince’s Head, a.k.a. The Crown and Anchor — priceless!
Unfortunately, you won’t get a chance to down a few with Coach Lasso or his well-grounded, longtime assistant and friend, Coach Beard nor will you get to sing “Roy Kent, Roy Kent, he’s here, he’s there, he’s every-f***ing-where, Roy Kent, Roy Kent” with the AFC Richmond supporters from The Crown & Anchor, but up to 12 insanely lucky guests will have the opportunity to stay there this Autumn. #BELIEVE #FUTBOL IS LIFE
To promote the premiere of the 3rd and ‘final’ season of Ted Lasso, The Prince’s Head, the 300 year-old real life Crown and Anchor, Ted Lasso’s ‘local’ in Richmond, England, opened for booking (actually, only about 10 minutes at best) on Airbnb for three nights this fall with Mae (Annette Badland), the gritty pub owner from the show, serving as host.
Up to four guests a night will have the opportunity to stay overnight on October 23, 24 and 25, 2023. For only £11 a night (a specific nod to the number players on the pitch), guests will get the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to channel their inner Ted, Coach Beard, Nate, Rebecca, Roy Kent, Jamie Tartt, Keeley, Higgins, Sam Obisanya or Mae. Playing darts, singing Karaoke, yelling at the telly or just sitting down and discussing the true meaning of relegation is certainly on the table.
For my money, it would certainly be worth the price of admission to have Mae yell at you from across the bar just once, especially for the paltry sum of £11 a night! If only Trent Crimm (James Lance) from The Independent could make an appearance, there’s no telling what I would have paid.
Unfortunately, the Airbnb booking is closed as the available three nights went about as fast as a box of Ted’s shortbread in the hands of AFC Richmond’s owner, Rebecca Welton (Hannah Waddingham). Given that fact the price was £11 a night ($14 a night), it’s no wonder booking is closed.
Privately owned and operated by Fuller Smith and Turner, the Prince’s Head is located in the city of Richmond, London upon the River Thames just around the corner from Ted’s flat on the Richmond Green.
Ted Lasso is currently streaming on Apple TV+
