went fro Sunday lunch with my daughters and one son in law. We ordered starters which were served speedily then the main course which were generous helping on very hot plates. Great service and excellent food.We had not been here before. Had we known how large the portions are we would have skipped starters. Would definitely go again.

Nice atmosphere and large selection of food. We tried the goulash, fish and chips, and cheese hamburgers. Burgers a little over done for me, but very fresh chips and fish.

The Duke

Nick & Annie welcome you to the Duke of Edinburgh at Woodside, a traditional family run business. Here at the Duke of Edinburgh we pride ourselves in offering the highest quality of service in a welcoming and friendly atmosphere. We offer the very best in both a-la-Carte and Bar menu food, with Chef specials offered nightly. Sample our wonderful fayre and accompany your meal with choices of fine wines.

We are located just off the Windsor Road in the hamlet of Woodside, just half a mile from Ascot Racecourse. There is ample parking available, and we have a nice garden too.

The pub is over 200 years-old and has low beams, giving a cosy atmosphere. The pub was recently completely refurbished, during which time the restaurant was extended and new toilet facilities were installed.

There are two TVs in the lounge area which show the football or other sports events. As well as various beers and guest ales, there are numerous excellent wines & champagnes available.

Just along from the lounge bar area is the restaurant, with table sizes to fit all occasions (parties up to 18 catered for).

The Duke provides free WiFi access (high speed compu-fix system) for its patrons, and offers a smoking shelter with heaters, in addition to the spacious beer garden which also boasts a large avery sporting numerous types of budgerigars.

We do allow dogs in the bar and garden, but do bring a 'doggy bag' in case of an accident.
