The restaurants name, ‘Kingsmen’, derives from the rank/title given to soldiers of the Kings Regiment (now known as the Duke of Lancaster’s Regiment). The restaurant is owned by and employs veterans of the 1st Battalion the Kings Regiment and their families i.e. former Kings Men.
The relevance to the restaurants location in Prescot Town Centre is that on the 29th August 1914 the 17th (1st City) Battalion, the Kings Regiment (Liverpool) was raised by Lord Derby at the old watch factory in Prescot. This Battalion had the distinction of being the first ever ‘Pals Battalion’. In addition, the new Shakespeare North Playhouse is located in Prescot and The ‘King’s Men’ was the name given to William Shakespeare’s acting troupe when it changed its name from the Chamberlain's Men in 1603.

Street lamps, a feature sky lighting effect, a bus stop, outside portaloo (inside), graffiti art and a post box are all installed with the main feature being our burger van projecting out from a wall.
