“What the hell happened !”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

After eating here with my friends in October and being really impressed I decided to take hubby for bday treat. Place is great and service was good but the food was really below parr. Starters were nothing but ok. Husband and daughter ordered chilli con crane. It was was the consistency of tinned mince, lacked any flavour and was served with random yellow rice ! They both left the meal, explained to waitress,she offered no replacement meal and but later at the end of evening did not charge us. would rather have had a replacement meal.My other daughter had fajitas which were also lacking in flavour. I had beef stroganoff which was good. I had really built this place up to family because I had enjoyed previous visit but this was not the same place! Not sure if I will risk another visit.

“A gem of a place not to be missed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2013

My son and I visited the WIndsor castle tap house pub ( sadlers owned) for a trip around the brewery and to sample the real ale at the pub. From the moment we arrived we were looked after by the friendly and experienced staff. The bar and eating area was superb. The informative trip around the brewery was excellent and we learnt so much from the passionate approach to brewing real ale at Sadlers.

On return to the bar we experienced an excellent plough mans meal and sampled the eight Sadlers real ales on sale. Whether you are a real ale fan or not this was a great day out.

All in all what a fantastic experience - I feel sure we will be visiting the Windsor castle pub in the not too distant future. Well done guys you should be proud.

John and Wez Chapman

“No more than average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2013

Being generous here. Called for lunch with a friend, certainly not busy we were the only ones eating but waited for 50mins for a less than average sandwich of bacon brie and cranberry, bacon rind still on and could have broken teeth on it. Friends coffee sent back quite cold and then took another 10mins to return. Atmosphere zilch certainly neither of us would rush back or recommend

“Excellent Beer and Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2013

A great pub serving outstanding beers. (It is the brewery tap for Sadlers). The food was well presented, tasty and served efficiently by welcoming staff. It is best to book if you are going on Fridays or at the weekend. The bar does get crammed witness to the quality of the beers! The restaurant is quieter. Well worth a visit.

“A great local English Pub”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

Another visit and again not disappointed.
We visited over the Xmas period for a spot of lunch. We intended to have a lite bite but opted for mains of the main menu.
The mixed grill is excellent and well worth the 15 pound price tag. My partner opted for the lasagne which was fresh and had that home made cooked taste.

The staff are first class and very attentive and friendly.

We had booked for a Saturday night a week previous which had unfortunately been double booked. When the manager released she was extremely apologetic and did everything to accommodate. This is a busy and popular place so make sure you book early, this is a great place to eat with a great English menu and fine beers and locally produced ales to choose from.
