Amazing décor!

There are not many bars that can make you feel that you enter a time machine back to 200 years in the past, but this one is one of them! Staff and prices are ok! We will have to come back to try the food!

Absolutely loved this pub in the Kensington area! It was recommeneded by a cousin and I decided to give it a try. Our group had some issues with our reservation, but Liz, our server, was there to help. She got us seated within 15 minutes and fed quickly after. Her service, cheer, and hospitality was more than delightful. The food... More

If you are looking for an authentic place with wide range of beers and ciders this is your place. We chose a nice steak and a bottle of spanish syrah which was fine and the steak was great. Before the wine we could choose from a lot of beers and ciders. Worth to visit if you are close to this... More

Nice pub inside, very old and interesting, but sorry £14 nearly for a beer and a large house wine, and then £7 nearly for a half of mulled cider.....too expensive.

I really enjoyed our lunch at the Windsor Castle, which I visited with some relatives from abroad. It's a local pub in a very nice area, offering an varied menu. We had a delicious smoked salmon starter, barbecue beef, sea bream and a very good hamburger. No room for desserts! The portions are generous and the food is not very... More

Windsor Castle is beautiful and the grounds are lovely. Buy tickets online in advance. Crazy long lines for those who had not. Also check the calendar to see if the State Apartments are open. They are stunning, but if the Queen is here they are not open. Skip the Great Kitchen Tour which is offered in December. Our tour guide... More

This is a nice pub with a very good atmosphere. There beer selection is very good and so is the food. If you are in the Notting Hill Area look this place up.
