“Lovely food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2014

We popped in for lunch today after reading some reviews on trip advisor. The food was lovely, we both had baguettes which weren't too crispy and the bacon was yummy. The menu is very varied with something for everyone I would definitely come again.

“Bella Bella Carbonara”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2014

First time in Windsor and having just declared ' I fancy pasta' we chanced upon The Corner House. This cosy little eatery, feels welcoming and warm. During a busy Tuesday lunchtime, we sat in the only seats available, a snug like booth at the rear of the premises. Service was good and I had the best carbonara whilst the boss had Haloumi wrap. Food was good. Enjoyed our short stay and would definitely go back...especially for the carbonara.

“New Year Eve”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2014 via mobile

Wow what can I say about our NYE celebrations that we shared with the wonderful staff and other guests. They really laid on a fab night, Tiffany the Cabaret was AMAZING and having seen many over the years she is just on point. Not scripted, worked with the crowd and was true true adult humour....not for the faint hearted! The singer Annie was fabulous! really getting the crowd going and dishing out some great 90's tunes... And as for James and the staff just first class... Exceptional value for money at £10 per ticket for booking early and our group really hope it is repeated in 2014 as we will be there....well done and if you didn't go you truly missed out. We are definitely going back for Sunday cabaret this year...well done a wonderful understated place in Windsor - away from tourist, rip off atmosphere less bars and clubs with kids in them.

“Not very good”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2013 via mobile

There must be dozens of places to eat in Windsor. There must, therefore, be dozens of places better to eat than The Corner House in Windsor. The food is generic, overcooked, pre-packed rubbish. The menu, for Sunday lunch had a choice of three starters, three main courses and three desserts. That's it. Unless you ask; If you ask one person that's all they do. If you ask another they do burgers too.
Service is slow - 45 minutes to get your main course. The service is, however, unerringly polite, and I must compliment them on this.
And that's it; If you'd like a good meal in Windsor go elsewhere.

Thank you for your feedback and am obviously concerned to learn of your dissatisfaction during your visit to The Corner House.

As you will have seen from the comments below we have received very good feedback from our Customers, many of which return to us time and time again for both food, entertainment and drinks.

Our Sunday menu this week was reduced owing to the quieter period during Christmas and New Year and tailored to meet the demands of our Customers. I can assure you our food is cooked from fresh and where possible, locally sourced.

I was working this day and both myself and the team received excellent feedback regarding the quality of the food from many of our other Customers. I can only apologise that you felt your meal fell below the standard expected and would welcome the opportunity to demonstrate the excellent quality of our food that is fast making us a popular destination in Windsor.

Thanks & regards

James & team
