This pleasant 300 year old pub, now part of the Windsor Pub Company, offers good pub-style dishes - all prepared on the premises. There are cosy eating areas, separated by pillars, plus a large outside decked area popular in fair weather.
Starters such as 'Smoked Haddock Fishcake with Mixed Leaves'; 'Baked Boxed Camembert with warm Crusty Bread' and 'Chicken Liver Paté with Onion Marmalade' set the style for starters.
The main course menu is more extensive in the evening (almost to the point of being over-long), but again 'Braised Lamb Shank on Champ Potatoes with Red Wine and Rosemary Sauce'; 'Green Chicken Curry'; 'Grilled traditionally-hung Beef Rib Eye Steak' and 'Grilled Seabass with Garlic and Caper Sauce and New Potatoes' show where the kitchens coming from.
Desserts/puddings are mainly of the nostalgic kind - 'Warm Chocolate with Vanilla Ice Cream', 'Sticky Toffee' and Bread and Butter' all being popular; with Crème Brulée also there for the less indulgent appetite.
There's a children's menu throughout the day, and Sunday lunch, with traditional roasts, is always popular.
