You’ll find the Windsor Castle nestled in the back streets of Windsor, minutes from the train station and a short stroll from Chapel Street.

The tropical outdoor space is a popular sunny day destination. It features a bamboo clad bar, ample seating and lush surrounding.

    Caught up with friends for Sunday roast lunch. It was great food and nothing nicer than sitting in the sunny courtyard on an autumn afternoon. Great local and friendly service.

    A pleasant and relaxing time had enjoying a very good meal in a neighbour pub. Friendly efficient staff. A good menu and selection of tap beers available. This place was a good find close to home.

    Fantastic old Pub hasn’t changed in years just the way I like it . It was comfortable and relaxing and the outside beer garden was beautiful on a nice sunny day.

    Beef cheeks and the randang was perfect. The oldies found seats a little tiring. You can't win

    I was very impressed with the gluten free options, especially the separate fryer for chips. As a coeliac it is very hard to find restaurants that cater for this need. The food was lovely and the staff were very helpful

    Good food. The dips for bread should be in ramekins and not on the plate. I liked the music they were playing. My pie was good quality

    Booked through open table but they had not got a table ready for us. Fortunately after 10 minutes wait, a suitable table became free. Suggest booking by phone instead? Big queue to order food. Not the fault of the guy taking the orders who was super-helpful about the table issue and when delivering the food, just seems that the policy of making people order at one point rather than taking table orders might cause queues at busy times.

    Went to Windsor Castle to get food and drinks with friends. Menu looked great, and very reasonable. We went to order and found out that they'd ran out of half the kitchen by 7pm!!! This could be expected of dishes like beef cheek, but this included burgers and even mayonnaise! Shambles. The food that did come was mediocre at best.

    Really disappointed. It’s been a few months since I have been but things have gone noticeably down hill. Food although reasonably priced was very average in quality and music far too loud. A shame . Staff were friendly but can’t escape feeling it used to be a great place to go for a pub meal but Is very tired now ...

    Great venue for a counter meal with friends on a winter's evening. Cosy fire with yum food (best mushroom burger!) and even better value. Love the quirk, staff, ambience of this little pub. Been coming here for years - glad its my local!
