Blackthorn _ left this review about The Two Brewers

An attractive looking pub apparently dating from 1792, it’s liberally adorned with hanging baskets and situated right next to the entrance of Windsor Park and the start of the Long Walk, it’s certainly in a prime spot and must get plenty of thirst walkers stopping in after they’ve completed the six miles to the Copper Horse and back.

Inside it’s split in to two rooms known as This Bar and That Bar either side of a central bar counter. It’s got a very cosy and traditional ambience with dark wooden flooring that has been worn smooth over the years and a dark red ceiling that included an unusual Coat of Arms mounted on it. All sorts of odds and ends were dotted around including a number of old gig posters for bands including the Rolling Stones and Jimi Hendrix, strings of Union Jack flags all around, rows of empty wine bottles that had been pressed in to use as candle holders and some old black and white photos. A small brick fireplace was off to one side although this looked rather disused, and a chalkboard above the bar outlined a history of the pub. At the rear a number of wine box ends had been fixed to the wall to make something of a feature, and above this were a couple of rows of old books. A small TV was up in one corner showing the tennis which seemed a little out of place perhaps, but the sound was off so this was not too intrusive. Seating was somewhat limited with just two large tables and a small bench, in the left-hand bar anyway, we didn’t investigate the other one. Most punters were either stood, or congregating outside.

Beers on tap were Rebellion IPA, London Pride and Tribute. Ciders meanwhile were Aspall’s Suffolk and Stowford Press. All in all, a great little pub and well worth checking out.

Very little changes here, it meanders on quite happily with atmosphere and character intact. Three ales on today, St Austell Tribute (NBSS 3), Pride and (ohh a new beer!) Rebellion Smuggler. Prices seem to have risen at a less furious rate than a number of nearby pubs so not as obviously expensive at it used to feel like.

December 2015
Another year, but literally no changes – the same three ales (Doom Bar, Pride and Tribute) and interior. One upswing was the quality of my Tribute, most drinkable. And the barmaids are easy on the eye. If they really wanted to, the owners could do something even better here with the ale. Rated 8

December 2014
Very little change here since 2011, including - it appears - the ale choices. So I went for a Tribute which was, sadly, a little underwhelming. Still, for the interior quirks this place should be a shoo-in when crawling Windsor. The downside is a fairly pedestrian ale range at fairly high prices; come on people the beer world has moved on for the better! Rated 8

June 2011
Tucked away towards the gates of the park but well-worth finding. A Grade II listed building from the 17th century, which apparently was a brothel for a while. These days a small range of ales in good quality await the punter - Pride, Doom Bar and Tribute on my last visit, with the Tribute drinking exceptionally well. An idiosyncratic place spread over two very small bars from a central porch, it's often standing room only and inside is dark, wood-panelled and atmospheric. Notices on the lower part of the entry doors for both bars saying what's allowed in each (dog friendly in the right-hand bar, btw). Interesting literature in the gents, along with various nik-nacks and oddities in the bars, one of which is basically decked out like a giant library with a small TV in the corner for the football, which has coat hooks in front of it. Large blackboard gives you a run-down of 'On this day in history', which is always interesting. It's very dark inside and exiting the place on the summers day can severely damage your retinas if you aren't careful. Papers available. A must-visit when in Windsor. Rated 8

A small pub with two rooms labled this and that but no real distinction between them, both were packed on a Sunday Afternoon.Still very much as Quinno describes in June 2011.The only critisism I could level at this pub is the rather pedestrian beer range, on my visit Doom Bar, Charles Wells Poppy and St Austell Tribute, that said the Tribute was in excellent condition and the fact the pub was rammed points to the fact I'm a little more fussy than some. It gets an 8/10 for me, with more interesting beer It could be a rare 10, a cracking pub and demands a return visit.
