Coronation banquets and feasts

The UK Parliament site has information about banquets and feasts.
From 1189 to 1821, Westminster Hall was the traditional venue for coronation banquets honouring newly-crowned monarchs. The earliest recorded being those of Prince Henry (crowned in the lifetime of his father, Henry II) in 1170 and of Richard the Lionheart in 1189.

The first course consisting of 46 dishes of hot meat was brought in by a procession of 73 people, including three officers on horseback. Amazing!!
