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 pub is a south side icon with its striking lime façade and pink elephants. It’s a popular destination for locals with its cozy fireplace, great pub food and beer garden. The tropical outdoor space is a popular sunny day destination. It features a bamboo clad bar, ample seating and lush surrounding.

We have DJs spinning tunes Friday and Saturday and weekly trivia every Tuesday from 7pm.

We we're open 7 days and closed most public holidays.

We look forward to meeting you.

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 ...

Very nice food at a very good value. Chicken Parma, pork chops and rocket salad were all well received cozy with the fire in the fireplace.

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!
