Queens Larder

3 out of 5 stars

Time Out says

Although its terrace helps to create a continental atmosphere, at least when joined by others along this pedestrianised stretch, the Queens Larder is a classic British pub.

The royal connections advertised in the name are, for once, legitimate: it was here that long-suffering Queen Charlotte hid the medicaments of her husband, the famously ‘mad’ King George III.

A medical connection remains: off-duty staff from nearby Great Ormond Street are among the latter-day regulars at this wooden cubby-hole, sipping Greene King IPA and Old Speckled Hen while munching spam fritters, chips and beans or roast beef and Yorkshires (less than a tenner). Gilt-framed posters for theatre and Royal Ballet productions bring things up to date, if barely.
