What a great venue for a pub quiz. Good food, great beer and nice location. The only downside is parking in the area, can be a little walk away.

If you want decent pub food, then the windsor isn't too bad. The boys is that it has a nice outdoor space. The food is typical 'pub food' - fish and chips, burgers, pizzas and so on. Not a bad place to eat but it's...More

I was disappointed not to find any IPA on the tap. Very friendly service, but hey, I was the only customer on a late Wednesday afternoon, and it is a very big pub! A few tables outside, otherwise inside seating.

Called in for a drink after dinner and found bar staff bored, rude and disinterested. Ran out of the drink we wanted and no alternatives offered. Wont be back anytime soon.

We went for a relaxing pub meal and were pretty impressed by the atmosphere. The menu was very good and the drinks menu (including the cocktails!) was equally impressive. We had a query with a flat/off beer and we were fobbed of very curtly. We...More

The Windsor Castle is Parnell’s local pub serving fresh food, quality beers, fine wines and spirits since 1847 – there’s been a pub on this site for over 165 years making the Windsor one of the oldest licensed premises in Auckland and, in fact, New Zealand. The current building dates from the last years of the 1880s and has been a significant landmark in the shire since. We offer a range of Gastro pub dishes for lunch and dinner, seven days a week. The Windsor Castle is proud to serve fresh, tasty food at a fair ‘pub’ price.The Windsor has long provided an entertainment and social hub for the neighbourhood. We’re also an integral part of the Musical History of New Zealand, as a performance venue for many, second to none. That’s a tradition we’re honoured to uphold.
