A good visit before Xmas, with the full W&E range available and the Conqueror and Mandarin drank well. Forgot about the silly goblet glasses though. Absolutely rammed, so the locals are obviously on-board too. This is now the Eton (and Windsor!) destination pub.

December 2015
So Windsor & Eton brewery have got the lease on this one after the short-term mess of the previous incarnation and there have been yet more internal changes, including the restoration of a sizeable bar area. Still a fairly upmarket feel inside and there as certainly a decent smattering of hoorays amongst the Friday night throng. Six pumps, all W&E – both our beers drank relatively well but came in those annoying little goblets that in my opinion knock the life out a beer when pouring. I suspect I’ll be back (though drinking from straights). Rated 7

Tarted-up and recently re-opened. Modern-yet-plush with varnished wood floor, candles, wing-back seating, heavy curtains. Tasteful red and cream paintwork. Feature fireplace for show rather than use. Bar is at the far end and stupidly small, seemingly crammed with punters even though there were only a handful in reality. Mirrored bar back looks nice though. Two pumps but only one on, TT Landlord in fair condition but at 2 quid a half hardly a draw. Staff were at least punctual and on the ball. Noticed a stack of local CAMRA mags, hope rather than expectation? Maybe one for an illicit affair (think I saw one happening) as opposed to a worthy visit. Rated 5

A kind of half-in, half-out gastro pub with whitewash interior conversion that's a bit too clinical for my taste and devoid of atmosphere as a consequence. A decent Brakspears, but in Windsor that's nothing to get excited about is it? Rated 3

A thoroughly welcoming pub and hotel situated just across the bridge from Windsor into neighbouring Eton. A corner fireplace gave immediate good cheer on a cold afternoon and both the barman and a clutch of locals were sociable and inviting. The main room is boarded and has a solid looking beamed ceiling, another old inglenook fireplace adjoining the bar looked to be unused sadly. A small side area is a bit like a snug although not entirely separate, this has sofas and armchairs. There is however a grandfather clock, various framed prints, some being of classic old portraits and pleasingly regular seating including some nice high backed pews.
Six pumps dispense Windsor and Eton beers, Parklife, Knight of the Garter, Canberra, Guardsman and Mandarin..an Xmas ale and Conqueror. Thirds tray available for £3.80.
Food served, a bit expensive but no further comment as not sampled.
This is a fine pub indeed, it was just the ticket on a cold and dull afternoon, highly recommended.

As a fan of W&E beers I was looking forward to seeing what this one was like. I got here around 12:30 and it was mainly taken up by what looked like office groups eating and drinking. It's a long room with the bar on the left as you enter, a small snug away from the bar and a terrace / garden outside. Considering it looks quite large from the outside it struck me as being quite small inside. A table of office types near me had ordered food and it looked like a mountain of it on each plate. I didn't stay long enough to see whether they managed to finish it all!
As noted below, the bar has six hand pumps which on my visit had Thwaites Wainwright and five W&E beers (Conqueror, Windsor Knot, Guardsman,
882 Seattle Porter and Mandarin). I went for the Mandarin (£3.80) and Conqueror (£3.90). Both tried were in good nick but the Mandarin was the better of the two. I thought overall it was a bit too food orientated but it's definitely worth a look.
