“The Windsor hotel high tea”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

Beautiful high tea at The Windsor hotel. Excellent service in a lovely old world setting with chandeliers, silver service and attentive waiters. Champagne, choice of tea and a dessert buffet to die for. Very much enjoyed two hours of indulgence.

“Enjoyable & well priced”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2012 via mobile

Stopped for a drink & a bite to eat while staying at the Windsor. Drinks were very reasonable compared to city price. $8 pint of James Squire & less than $8 for a glass of sparkling. Interesting memorabilia on the walls. Food was average but hit the spot. Great relaxed setup. Service was mixed 2 of 3 staff were lovely.

“Fantastic Historic Cricketers Bar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2011

Attached to The Windsor Hotel, in a fantastic spot in Melbourne. We stumbled across this fantastic bar while walking around Melbourne. Great atmosphere inside and a little more upper class makes it a nice place to have a cold beer or cider. Loads of cricket history inside. Staff are very welcoming and I would recommend this bar to anyone visiting Melbourne :)

“Atmospheric and olde-worlde”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2008

Whether or not you like this bar, which is part of The Windsor Hotel, a 'wedding cake' late 19th century historic hotel, may depend on your sex and age.

The bar seems to cater for an overwhlemingly male demographic, with a bias towards older age groups, though the latter is less pronounced than the former.

Sporting memorabillia abounds.

Drink prices are not overly cheap.

Friends, however, will enjoy the cosy surrounds and their proximity to Parliament Station, avoiding the need to drink then drive home.
