We stumbled across this by accident - there were lots of road works around and it wasn't very clear it was open. So glad we did not give it a miss as it was the best pub lunch we.ve had in a while!! The building boasts a date of AD1542 and has a wonderfully quaint and old interior. The Landlady was very warm and friendly and offered some interesting chat on their own legacy of the Olympic games..... Food was piled high and piping hot and the Real Ales on tap helped to wash it all down nicely!! Lovely setting and well worth the trip just across the bridge over the river if you are visiting Windsor Castle.

A big, FREE function room which coped with at least 50 people. Excellent staff who made our leaving party go smoothly. Food was tasty! Definitely coming back :-)

I held my party at The Watermans arms, it was a really good size hall, creating a good atmosphere, Gillian was very accommodating and very flexible. We decided to do chips in cones, we supplied the cones and Gillian supplied the chips! everybody commented on how lovely the chips were.
I would defiantly recommend this venue and the next day when we collected our belongings the Calvary looked very inviting.

Needed a venue for a Family Reunion and found the Function Room at the Watermans Arms on the Internet which looked ideal. Also the wide choice of food and reasonable prices helped with the decision, which enabled family members to eat and pay separately.
The evening went brilliantly, the function room is a lovely size (we had around 40 and had room to move around, although could have had more comfortably), nicely lit with tables that can be moved around and a hi-fi system you can use for music.
The food was lovely. All served piping hot despite the numbers of people, and the choice enabled everyone to find something they liked, (we had a couple of chefs among the family members who had steak and said it was very nice - compliment indeed!)
Central setting in Eton and the car park just a few yards up the road was free after 7pm. Outdoor seating for those who wanted it.
Thanks to Gillian and the staff at the Watermans Arms for a lovely evening.

A very friendly, well run pub. Good selection of real ales and wines. The menu is fairly traditional pub fare but is well cooked and reasonably priced. It is also nicely tucked away from the busy tourist trail through Windsor and Eton so tends to be well frequented by locals.

Very dog friendly.

Well worth a visit.
