Dating from the 16th Century, the Queen’s Head & Artichoke was once a Royal Hunting Lodge on the site of what is now The Regent’s Park. It is mentioned in the Crew’s Survey in 1753 as ‘a ramshackle old tavern’. When The Regent’s Park was created, several well known Inns were demolished, one of which was the Queen’s Head & Artichoke. It was re-established at its present site in 1811, although the current building dates from around 1900. The licence itself dates from the time Queen Elizabeth 1st reign, after whom the pub is named. The origin of its name is attributed to Daniel Clark, Master Cook & Head Gardener to both Elizabeth 1st & James 1st.
” I know I have the body but of a weak and feeble woman; but I have the heart and stomach of a king, and of a king of England too ”
