At the coronation of James II, 1,445 dishes of food were served up in the course of the banquet while at the coronation of George IV, some 2,000 guests were received in Westminster Hall for the celebratory dinner. The provision of extra kitchens was a necessity. This drawing shows the temporary (yet extensive) kitchens that were erected in the Cotton Garden for George III's coronation.
