London Borough of Camden in Greater London County, England, United Kingdom
The Queens Larder
It was during this era that the reigning sovereign, George III, began to be affected by mental illness, and for a while he stayed privately in Queen Square under the care of Dr Willis. The doctor's treatment which was temporarily successful was helped by the kings consort, Queen Charlotte, who rented a small underground cellar beneath the present tavern in which she stored special delicacies for her sick husband.
When the alehouse became a tavern later in George's reign, it was named The Queen's Larder in Charlotte's honour.
The Queen's Larder stands in a neighbourhood that is famous for its hospitals and foundling home. Writing of the area R.I Stevenson once observed that it seemed to have been set aside for "the humanities of life and the alleviation of all hard destinies"
