This place certainly makes the most of its riverside setting with a huge terrace to the front and a stand alone glazed building which appeared to be set up exclusively for dining. At least half of the pub itself is geared for eating too with just the left hand end seemingly being for drinkers where two pumps offered a choice of London Pride or W&E Knight of the Garter. The W&E was a bit past its best unfortunately.
Various riverine artifacts on the walls and ceilings such as model boats, ship's wheels and fishing nets, an end wall in the dining area has a map of Windsor Castle. The bold turquoise and orange colour scheme is a bit in your face but otherwise the pub is comfortable enough.
As I was preparing to leave a woman entered and ordered a glass of red wine with a splash of coke! How utterly bizarre.

This pub is just perfect if you have dogs - plenty of space inside where you can eat a fabulous meal with a Pino or a Pint with the dog enjoying a treat and some water by your feet....the walks around the pub - Home Park and the Brocas in Eton are great to wear them out before lunch or dinner although we don't always eat but just have a coffee depending on the time. There's an all weather terrace although we like sitting at the tables right by the river. Especially like the atmosphere with all the twinkly lights at night and the reflections from the water. The food is wonderful (I've had the liver, their burger and the chips are to die for - my favourite) and it's a real find if you like sitting by the river as you can't anywhere else in Windsor.

So this one has been refurbished and re-opened but apart from a coat of aqua blue paint (which probably looks fine on a sunny day but on a dark dank November evening felt rather oppressive) and the addition of some fishing/maritime ephemera, very little else has changed in the layout. Still big on food and the place smelt like Billingsgate market. In a nod to being slightly more pubby, there was a TV showing the rugby. Two ales on; Pride and a pretty decent W&E Knight of the Garter. Staff were notably friendly. It’s an improvement, I’ll give it that.

April 2014 (as River House)
Riverside location with large and well-appointed outside seating by the Thames. Opulent interior with chandeliers, varnished wood flooring, nice bar uplights and tasteful modern touches. One for the refined, the smell of expensive perfume trumped the food whiff. Long row of hinged doors look like they are thrown open on sunny days. Chilled background muzak. Food-led place and the waiter on the opposite table seemed well-versed on the specials. One pump (local WEBREW Garter) whose availability is not always guaranteed - a week earlier it was unavailable. Anyway I finally managed to get a half this time though it wasn’t up to much. Served by a friendly barmaid, glad I got her as her male colleague was pretty clumsy. As Hondo says, probably a winner in the summer; assuming you can get a decent pint, that is… Rated 5
