Another 2019 Good Beer Guide Entry.

A nicholsons pub over three floors. Classic Nicholsons decor - with the Ashbys Ales tiling on the front step pointing to a different history.

Friendly regulars amongst the tourists and friendly bar staff. London Pride was best pint of 3 in the town.

In full swing at Xmas, and the Thornbridge Xmas ale was the beer of the day here. Pleased to see it doing well, I do have a soft spot for it. 8.5

December 2015
An overdue revisit here - eight pumps with seven on; Pedigree, Pride, Doom Bar, Adnams Broadside & Ghost Ship, Truman's 3 Wise Hops and Loch Lomand Silkie Stout. Halves from the latter two were in very good shape. Still a default choice in the town centre. Rated 8

The last 18 months has seen a definite upswing here again. My latest couple of visits have found a fully-stocked row of handpumps (now expanded to eight) with a laudable range of ale styles and sensible prices for Windsor, with the Pride currently coming in at £2.90pp. My group worked their way through most and the quality was consistently good. Perhaps the service can be a little bit perfunctory at times but certainly no worse than many other nearby outlets. Worth seeking out, especially as the courtyard is a bit of a sun-trap on a summer’s afternoon. The toilets have also been done-up too! Rated 8

Well I've been in a couple of times recently and whilst the ale range of six is laudable, the quality control is lacking - on both occasions the first pint I've purchased has had to go straight back. A hard earned reputation is easily to lose - buck up. Point docked. Rating 7

This is without doubt the best place I've been to in Windsor. Located on a cobbled street behind the crooked tea house next to the Guild Hall, the pub boasts four ever-changing real ales served from a curved mahogany bar that are well kept and are surprisingly cheap given what a tourist trap Windsor is (under £3). Some of the 'guests' are quite mainstream though, don't necessarily expect to see four ales you can't get within a 30 minute drive. There's a good atmosphere inside, is well-decorated, and good quality food is offered (the risotto is especially good) that's cheap too. I think that this place is owned by the Nicholsons chain nowadays, who specialize in 'Olde Worlde' pubs - check out the Ashby's Ale mosaic on the rear entrance step and gated subterranean cellar. Drawbacks? It's a bit small and finding a table can be a bit of a chore sometimes. The toilets also need an overhaul. Rating 8

A typical but not bad Nicholsons, the usual dark ornate wood fixtures and fittings, eight handpumps with a line up of Gales Seafarers, Trumans Zephyr,hogsback TEA, Al Murray Dependance Day?,Black Wolf Big Red, Nicholsons Pale, Doom Bar and London Pride.Its actually quite a decent pub and worth a look.
