Aqualung . left this review about The King & Castle (Lloyds No. 1 )

Being situated directly opposite Windsor Castle I was hoping I might find Liz & Phil the Greek here joining a raucous throng of the Daytime Brigade but no such luck. It must be too expensive even for them.
Although it's a large Spoons it is only so because it covers several levels.
I stuck to the ground floor which isn't cavernous for a Spoons but did notice that there is a massive outside terrace at the back which on my December visit was empty. The furnishings were much plusher than your average JDW. Although this is still listed as a Lloyds No. 1 in their last directory there is no Lloyds ID externally and it's hard to see how this could be turned into a night club. The only clue to any Lloyds credentials may have been that Sky News was shown on the TV.
The ground floor bar has two sets of hand pumps, one with six and one with four. On my visit these had GK IPA & Abbot and cider doubled up leaving Hook Norton AFO, Tetley Christmas Cracker, Doom Bore and London Pride. I thought this was a pretty poor selection compared to the doomed Windlesora. I went for the International Hook Norton AFA which was in excellent condition but at £3.10 a pint should have been. At least it wasn't poorly kept like many of the similarly expensive Spoons beers I've had in Central London.
For me this place was just a tourist trap and they are welcome to it. I wouldn't return.

Superb pint of Rebellion Roasted Nuts in here the other day. Still a good Spoons in my opinion.

Revisit found little change from my 2009 review. My Salopian Holly Bush was in excellent nick. I still think this is a fairly good Spoons, even if the prices are higher than 98% of their other outlets (still at least 20p+ cheaper per pint than pretty much anywhere else in SL4 mind you…). Rated 7

Massive JDW opposite the castle. Spread over three floors along with an outside garden, it's quite smartly kitted-out (wood panelling etc) though has a few pretensions above its station especially in the evening at weekends. However it’s a decent stop for a pint during the daytime and the rear patio area is nice. Prices seem to be a wee bit more expensive than the generic Spoons, or is that just me? Ales often have a local slant, Rebellion gets on a lot though the usual Spoons quantity can sometimes be absent. One of the better Spoons and worth popping in if visiting Windsor. Rated 7

Multi level interior with a terraced patio area at the rear. Located across the road from Liz and Phils gaff. Usual spoons selection.
