Where to eat
Opposite the castle
There are numerous fast food outlets close to the castle. Castle Hill, at the foot of the castle walls, has lots of places to eat. Burger King, McDonalds and Pizza Hut and the slightly more upmarket Pizza Express restaurants to name a few.
The King & Castle pub is a member of the Lloyds chain of bars which specialise in grilled food, salads and panini. Prices are reasonable as is the food quality. Ye Olde Harte & Garter is another chain restaurant, similar in many ways to the Beefeater.
The Slug and Lettuce is part of a chain of themed pubs. You don't have to drink alcohol to eat there though and the food is said to be rather good.
Windsor Royal Station
There are a number of quality eateries including Ha Ha Bar & Canteen and Café Rouge, a french style cafe complete with aproned waiters. There are also coffee shops aplenty, a tea bar and Eat, a sandwich and coffee bar.
Elsewhere in Windsor
There are also many coffee shops and cafes dotted around Windsor &
Eton, including the very crooked Market Cross House. Several are to be
found in and around Church Street as are several pubs that serve food.
Due to licencing laws children are not always allowed in pubs. If in doubt
ask at the bar.
Daniel department store (entrances in Peascod Street and King Edward Court) has a popular restaurant and a coffee shop. Fenwicks, also in King Edward Court, also have a cafe/coffee shop.
Across the river in Eton there are a number of good restaurants. Either side of the bridge are two restaurants run by the same company: The House on the Bridge and Monty's restaurants. Both have fine views of the river and castle from their dinng areas. The House on the Bridge have a Table D'Hote lunch menu for £19.95 Mon to Sat. Sunday lunch at Monty's will cost you £17.50.
The Cockpit, in the High Street, is another fine restaurant. It is housed in a 17th century coaching inn. As you can probably tell from the name cock-fights, said to be frequented by King Charles II, were once held in the courtyard here.
