“Great beer garden”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

I met my friend Anne here for a drink after work on Thursday. The beer garden was busy, however we managed to find a table to sit at and passed a very enjoyable evening. The drinks were a bit expensive, but it is Nottinghill. The bar has lots of period features and was also very busy. A favourite for a drink in the beer garden and we will regularly return.

“Fab on a warm day, the cosiest beer garden”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

This is a little oasis in otherwise busy tourist saturated area, it is nice to get just off the beaten track and find this lovely little garden at the back. The service was friendly, the charcuterie platter just fine, and not too expensive all in all, I liked it very much. Would love to try for brunch. Inside looks very cosy also, could be gorgeous in the winter with candles and the like. Recommended especially for a summer outing.

“Windsor castle worth trying in Kensington”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

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.

“Lovely Sunday Brunch”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

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.

“Great Sunday Roast”
Reviewed 22 May 2014

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.
