We were able to sit in the garden for our dinner on a beautiful evening. The food was very good, pleasant atmosphere. I was very pleasantly surprised, it was an easy walk up and downhill from our hotel.

Chose this place as it has an outside 'beer garden'. So rare to find outside space in central London and nice to go to when the weather is good. Food was nice, I had crab something starter and then a chicken ceaser salad. Good size portions. Nice crowd soon filled the outside area to brimming. Great atmosphere and very local nice neighbourhood crowd and not too old!
Service was very friendly but less than efficient. Had to call the few waiting staff several times to get any attention.
The inside of the pub is bleak....ok for winter I would guess but a bit depressing in summer so if you can get a place outside it is worth it, otherwise I wouldn't really bother.

After doing research on various sites, I zeroed in on The Windsor Castle. My husband and I went for the Sunday roast on our first night, and both the food and the atmosphere were fantastic. This was not a chain pub with a simulated pub experience. This place was the real deal. In fact, we went back again later in the week with a group of my husband's co-workers, and they all loved it as well. In addition to the roast, the hamburger, chicken hot pot and brownie dessert were all delicious.

This pub was refurbished last year. The quirky bar area is the same, you still have to duck through the arches to move from one bar to the next. However they have added extra eating areas at the back and the toilets have been moved upstairs, which is certainly an improvement. As with most of the pubs in Kensington it costs £5 a pint here and over £10 for a large glass of wine. We were there on a Sunday but decided not to eat as so many customers had brought their small children who were getting in the way, especially on the stairs. It was like a kindergarten. So we left after two drinks.

We visited this pub for a couple (or three) pints one Friday lunchtime having seen it listed in Time Out as one of London's best beer gardens and it really is excellent. It's quite discreet and out of the way, and inside is very traditional with lots of dark timber and some quite interesting features. The beers and ciders are also a little different from those normally offered. Overall we would highly recommend the place and will certainly be going again.
