GETTING TO KNOW THE HISTORY OF THE ROYAL SHEPHERD

The Royal Shepherd is the only pub in the country to have the name.

The pub is thought to have been named after George III at the beginning of the 19th century.

He was nicknamed Farmer George after creating model farms at Windsor, and The Royal Shepherd is thought to have been named in his honour in keeping with Skipton's agricultural and sheep farming connections.
