BRITAIN’S youngest landlady pulls pints in her own pub — but is too young to drink there.
Queenie Griffiths, 17, and sister Maisie, 20, refurbished a rundown shop unit to open MaQueens.
Hairdressers by day, they ploughed their savings into the evenings-only venture.
Queenie said: “We never thought we’d be capable of owning a bar. It was a big risk but I’ve loved it. I don’t mind that I can’t drink. I’m here to work and run the place.”
Maisie’s name is on the lease of the bar in Redcar, North Yorks, as Queenie is under 18 but they are equal partners.
They buy in the booze, have no links to a brewery and are so busy they have two bar staff.

However, due to her age Queenie can serve drinks only if her sister is on the premises.
Maisie said: “I feel a bit bad for her sometimes as some of her older friends come in for a drink and she can’t join them.”
Mum Karen said: “They’ve done an amazing job.”
