“Good food with a view.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Lovely pub situated right opposite Windsor castle. Its part of the wetherspoon chain, so it will be the same food as you can get in most of the other wetherspoon pubs. The quality of the food is good and the service is good and fast. It has a big beer garden and lots of room inside aswell. Good for travellers who are visiting windsor or for people who want a drink on their travels.

“Good food and view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

The King and Castle is a nice and clean pub just opposite Windsor Castle. The food was very good, the prices fair. Some meals even include a drink, so it's good value for money. The view of the castle is very nice, especially in the evening when the sun goes down. Would definitely go there again.

“Typical pub grub”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

Located on the main street opp the Castle. You must order at the bar and pay which is a bit confusing if you aren't used to that. The food was fine, nothing special but reasonably priced so that is fair.

“Awful!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

We decided to try The King and Castle for breakfast on our first morning in Windsor - wish we hadn't! The pub was nicely decorated and the service was quite good - but the food! It was cold, the hash browns undercooked and a very strange layer on the bottom of the eggs. The sausages were tasty though.
The following evening we fancied a drink in a garden before going for a lovely Italian meal, unfortunately we gave the pub another chance. It is obviously very popular but it was filthy. I had to kick fag butts away before sitting down to save my dress sweeping them up, the table was dirty and the menu was so sticky that all the seeds blowing from the trees were stuck to them.
We saw a few plates of obviously frozen and heated up meals being served and made a bolt for it!
Not for us.

“A convenient place to eat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

We had an enjoyable evening meal at the 'King and Castle'.
The restaurant is opposite the castle in the High Street.
Our food was served by a pleasant waitress and the meal was enjoyable.
Recomend for a reasonable price meal.
