“Students Haven”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 October 2013

After a few visits, the novelty that attracted me to the Monkey's Forehead started to fade... But they have a great range of drinks and very good food, at prices that are more than fair. If you're after a decent night out and you're on a budget, the Monkey's Forehead is definitely the place to be. With frequent promotions and student offers, they have a lot to offer the younger generation. Be prepared to create your own atmosphere, and The Monkey's Forehead is bound to follow your lead.

“OK”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 October 2013

We had walked the dog in Windsor Great Park and felt like a pint before going home. Sat outside with the dog at the tables to the front which is on the main A30 and opposite Royal Holloway University of London. We arrived at around 6:45pm and we were served quickly. The beer was good and fairly priced. This is a typical pub that is frequented by many students from the university opposite. We imagine it could get very busy at times which could affect service. The outside tables are very close to the passing traffic on the A 30 so it is not the best place to be if you want somewhere quiet and fume free. It was quite a pleasant experience and we would return.

“Brash student pub - quite fun - after third pint.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2013

Brought in by students who wanted to watch midweek footie on TV. Bustling , mostly students. Average current routine pub food but fit for purpose. Had a noisy but quite enjoyable evening.

“Went down market Lol!!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2013

A pretty basic pub opposite Royal Holloway popular with the local student population. Surprised there were some business men and couples having meals in the restaurant.
The meals were good, basic and washed down with a cool beer, sitting outside is a possibility but it is on a busy road. Worth a visit if you wish to keep costs down but want good wholesome food in the heart of stockbroker belt.

“Too noisy”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2013

The pub is located next to the road and very easy to find. The service was good, but I’m not used to people talking so loudly, and it wasn’t very comfortable there in general.
