Fat English king’s food store (6)


I believe the answer is:


'food store' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'fat english king's' is the wordplay.
'fat' becomes 'lard' (lard is a kind of fat).
'english' becomes 'e' (abbreviation).
'king' becomes 'R' (abbreviation for rex, king in Latin).

(Other definitions for larder that I've seen before include "Cupboard or small room for food" , "Person applying grease" , "room off kitchen?" , "Room or cupboard for food storage" , "Place where food is kept" .)

I've seen this clue in The Times.
