Our largest-ever warship, HMS Queen Elizabeth, has had a traditional pub installed in time for her maiden voyage.
The 932-foot aircraft carrier, currently undergoing sea trials, sails for the US later this month.
The pub, named The Queen’s Head, was installed by Wiltshire brewers Wadworth in the senior NCOs’ mess.
Warrant Officer Dave Garraghty was excited to try his first pint on board the £3billion carrier.
He said: “The Queen’s Head is very much in keeping with the standards expected of the future fleet flagship.”
Wadsworth boss Chris Welham said: “It looks really great and will provide a relaxing environment with some fine beer for the team when they have downtime.”
Complete with a traditional hand-painted sign, the pub will stock a range of drinks including Carrier Ale, brewed to mark the Queen’s commissioning of the ship in December.
For every bottle served in the bar, 5p will be donated to naval charities.
