The Royal Windsor Public House offers artisan drinking and dining with spectacular views of Windsor Castle. Serving its Royal neighbours’ favourite tipples, there’s a bright dining area overlooking the castle, specialising in freshly-made traditional British dishes, and innovative twists on Mediterranean cuisine.  

The Royal Windsor has served Royals and residents alike for many years and boasts one of the biggest beer gardens in the historic town.

Specialising in handmade liquor and premium craft beers, including a house-brewed Royal Windsor Pint, this open and relaxed bar and kitchen serves the finest food in Windsor in an unrivalled environment.

Drinkers can enjoy exotic cocktails - created using house-infused spirits - in the vibrant and lively bar, and diners can relax in the adjoining restaurant. There is a function room available to hire for weddings and celebrations, and the impressive outside area boasts a bar of its own which is open throughout the summer.

The venue hosts a weekly quiz night every Wednesday, live music performances on Fridays, and a DJ plays into the early hours every Saturday night.

From long lunches and lazy brunches to romantic meals and business deals, The Royal Windsor is a venue for all occasions.
