Royal Stag

Reviewed By Phil8924

We arrived to a sign saying "car park closed" - I went in and asked, because I had booked online and the car park was actually one of the reasons, because my mother doesn't walk well at the moment. They said they'd had problems with it and it was now just for staff and for deliveries. It was entirely empty - they suggested we park over the road in a pay car park, which was too far for my mother to walk. Eventually they relented and allowed us to park, but this did seem rather unnecessary to me. If the car park is out of action, it would be good if that was clear on the website, and perhaps they could shut the gate - then I would have booked elsewhere.But as it was, we stayed and the two ladies serving were very helpful - sadly that didn't stop our food being very tough (duck breast and rump steak). We did mention this and, while they offered to change my mother's meal, since it was a birthday we didn't really want to eat at different times. With my steak I ordered peppercorn sauce, which they said would be coming ... and it was at least 7 minutes before it arrived - I asked, did you forget to order it? They then admitted that they did. Sadly the steak was very tough and of course, cool by the time I could eat it - I was surprised they charged the full £18 + additional £2 for the sauce. Also surprised they charged the full amount for the duck, considering my mother couldn't eat most of it because it was so rubbery, and then they added a service charge to the bill.So I would say, if you want a drink it's a nice pub with lovely bar staff, but avoid the food - it's overpriced and sadly, badly cooked.Very sorry about the issues you had with the parking and food. We will amend our website re. the parking, sorry about the confusion, but pleased the staff saw sense and allowed you in (for others reading this reply, customers can 'drop off' any passengers with mobility issues at the side entrance, then park in the 20p per hour public car park which is about 200mtrs away). Our car park has been closed for safety reasons due to its proximity to a zebra crossing. There is no excuse for your not receiving the peppercorn sauce with your steak, we apologise. The Head Chef has been made aware of your complaints on the steak and duck and is looking into it - yours is the first complaint about this. Had the Manager been on duty at the time of your visit I am sure the service charge (which is clearly stated as 'optional' on the menu, and all of which goes to the staff) would have removed it from your bill without being asked. Again, we are sorry your visit to the Stag was disappointing.

Reviewed By Susan D

We had a very enjoyable meal here, the food was hot, plentiful and tasty. However to pay just under £9 for a glass of wine? Hmm. I can get the same wine in The Strand London for £7.60. This would not stop us returning when we return to Windsor soon but I will check drink prices in future. Staff were very welcoming and accommodating and the garden was pleasant.Hi Susan, thanks for the review, and I am glad you enjoyed the food. The wine prices are all on the wine list which is available throughout the outlet, with a 175ml of house starting at £4.40. We do have more premium wines which do reach £9 per 250ml, these which sell very well with our regulars and we think they are worth it, but we do have a number of options to cater for all budgets. We look forwards to seeing you again in the future.ThanksMike

The Fox and Castle

The Fox And Castle is in parts 500 years old.It is your quintessential Black & White timbered building. According to the local historian there has been a pub on this site since 1216 a year after the Magna Carta was signed.We have adequate parking for cars

Reviewed By Michael S

Really great pub, excellent choice of beers (London Pride particularly good!), only had chips but excellent. Old building, real pub with beams etc, 2 bars and a fantastic garden. Clearly the current owners have spent money to create a wonderful garden with different areas and styles, covered areas and quirky items, e.g. deck chairs.

As a group of 8 we had an excellent Sunday lunch here, food was excellent, served nice and hot (sometimes restaurants struggle with this esp. with a big group). Extra requests for more gravy and Yorkshire puddings were met with a smile and swift delivery. Superb service. Would definitely come back if in the area.

All of it was delicious but the deer was stunning and loved the Bon Bon we were given when we had our pre dinner drinks

Meat At The Parish

Steakhouse & Cocktail Bar based in Windsor. Premium quality meat, an exciting range of cocktails & a vibrant atmosphere.

Reviewed By Steven A

Great food and great service. This steak restaurant does what is says on the tin, it serves beautifully cooked steak. There are other things on the menu which are equally delicious but steak is their specialty. The portions are very generous so I would recommend sharing sides. The service was great. The waiter was very friendly and took time to explain the menu and the specials, we never felt as though they were too rushed to think about our choices.
