FUNCTIONS AT Royal Standard
The Royal Standard is a big, friendly locals’ pub in the significant Liverpool suburb of West Derby. The pub shares a street with the entrance of Melwood, Liverpool Football Club’s training ground, which is just a stones throw away from the pub’s front doors.
Being within a stone’s throw of the club’s training ground has helped make this place popular among sports fans and it has nine TVs screening sport inside and outside. Quirky furniture, low-beamed ceilings and big bay windows give the pub a homely vibe that ensures its appeal extends beyond just football fans.
From the outside, the Royal Standard looks like two pubs fused together. The larger, newer building part of the pub is thought to have been built sometime in the 1930s, though the origins of the older annexe are a mystery.
Overlooking the main bar is the Loft Room situated on a Mezzaniine floor. It is a cosy area ideal for small private parties. With a capacity for 35 guests, the function room is often used to host birthdays, christenings and family get-togethers. Partygoers attending events in the Loft Room are still required to use the bar and toilets downstairs in the main part of the pub, but the mezzanine area does have its own TV screen and can be catered to separately with buffet-style food.
Situated in a prime spot for experiencing West Derby, The Royal Standard is conveniently located just a short drive from Liverpool City Centre and a short walk from West Derby Village. Ontop of this it is also minutes away from some of the areas most historic sites. Half a mile away is the only freestanding post-medieval couthouse in Britain, and five minutes down the road is Croxteth Park, former home of Lord Sefton. Join us for a drink and you’ll be ideally located for exploring the modern side to West Derby and the very best of its historical treasures too.
