Description: "A spectacular modern, style bar & eatery, with an atmosphere to match the quality menu."51" attracts regular customers, who enjoy the original modern art, relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff. Taken over by Windsor PubCo in 2002 when it was transformed from tired pub “51” has continued to prosper. Another complete makeover was carried out in 2009 with immediate success and acclaim by customers.There is the “oasis” a haven of peace set behind the bar away from the frantic hustle and bustle of the town centre shops where you can relax with anything from a cappuccino and breakfast to a glass of wine or champagne form the extensive wine list or simply a beer from the range of notable draught and bottled beers on sale. Surrounded by palm trees, covered and heated in the winter to provide the outdoor feel, it’s a real sun trap in the summer and if you want shade it’s there.Friday and Saturday night are throbbing with atmosphere, dj’s come on at 10pm until 2am and there’s live music on the last Thursday of the monthQuite simply it’s the place to be...!

Reviewed March 9, 2013

Visited on a Saturday in March for lunch, was pleasantly surprised how big inside it was and the modern decor. Nice big tables to sit at with comfy chairs. Varied menus and couldn't fault the freshly cooked food and polite, tentative service from the staff. Would definitely re-visit!!

“Good for a pre-dinner glass of wine”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

Friendly bar, with ample seating perfect for a glass prior to dinner elsewhere. Comfortable seats and ambience.

“no idea of what SERVICE means”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

Staff not interested, too busy chatting and laughing with each other. staff have no listening skills, we had to repeat our order twice. food was bland and cold. when we went to pay with our credit card we were asked to wait as the line was in use by the CHEF who was on the phone. we kindly asked that the CHEF get off the phone, so we could pay and leave! unbelievably bad service. would never go back and definitely don't recommend this place.

Excellent place to meet for a drink prior to dining at Meimo just across the road.

Good selection of beers. Contemporary feel.
