Believe it: ‘Ted Lasso’ pub to be listed on Airbnb for 3 nights in October

The charming neighborhood pub in Apple TV’s “Ted Lasso” is the site of many of the show’s greatest moments.

There’s the time Ted (Jason Sudeikis) schools Rebecca Welton’s (Hannah Waddingham) sinister ex-husband in a game of darts, the time Ted and Dr. Sharon Fieldstone (Sarah Niles) share a pint before she leaves town, and of course, the many times fans of AFC Richmond are cheering for or screaming at their team.

Now the pub in London’s Richmond area can be the site of some lucky “Ted Lasso” fans’ next vacation.

Airbnb is renting out The Crown & Anchor pub from the show for just three nights in October. (The pub is called The Prince’s Head in real life.)

Actor Anette Badland (who plays pub owner Mae in “Ted Lasso”) will greet guests virtually, and there will be a concierge and 24-hour security on site, said Airbnb spokeswoman Cathryn Vaccaro.

“Outside of these experiences, guests will have total privacy in the pub,” she said. 

Groups of up to four guests will be able to stay at The Crown & Anchor on Oct. 23, 24 and 25 for  £11 a night. It will be available for three individual one-night stays.

Those wanting to book the pub will have to request to stay there like a normal Airbnb listing and will need to identify up to three other travelers they’d like to bring. That means only a total of up to 12 “Ted Lasso” fans will get to stay at the pub.

Airbnb did not make clear how those trying to book the stay will be selected. A press release about the listing says only that it will not be a contest.

Though asked multiple times how the winning fans will be whittled down from the many who are likely to apply, Vaccaro answered by delineating the qualifications that guests must meet, such as being over 21 and having a verified Airbnb profile with a good track record of positive reviews.

The pub will be closed off to the public during the three overnight stays, allowing guests to have it all to themselves, complete with dart boards and a pink box of biscuits, of course. 

Those wanting to stay at the pub can try to book it here starting on March 21. Those who can’t make the trip to London or win a stay at the pub can always soothe themselves by watching the third season of “Ted Lasso,” which premiered Tuesday.
