“New management - new menu”
Reviewed 27 June 2014 via mobile

There's a new team in charge at the Windsor - the previous miserable welcome has long gone and you can now look forward to a friendly landlord and landlady, the same extensive range of well kept beers and a new menu. All the good bits remain - everything that needed improving has been changed and the Windsor is on the up.

“The truth”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

I refer to the "Such a pity" review. I've been going to the Windsor for over 12 years. The new Landlord Phil along with Charlotte are delightful and friendly. The new menu is excellent. Music has returned and the place is vibrant. Why somebody ( in Rhoose? I don't think so. ) write such a vindictive inaccurate review is beyond me. However, there is a clue in the name and if it's who I think it is, then I find it very, very sad.

“a terrible journey is as good as a fab one.”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

Wandered into Penarth my home town on a beautiful sunset filled evening to have a few halves. Went to a local bar where the hero burger and fries is excellent, but decided to have a last minute change of plan.......... Lets try the Windsor Arms and give it a go.......
yes being sensible i rang at 850 where a voice answered giving me a brief description of the menu and on request she advised me the kitchen closed at 10.
last sip and a swift walk i entered the Windsor at 9, and ordered 2 halves, and picked up the menu, the bar lady said nothing.
i asked a few questions on the menu, and she confirmed something i fancied was indeed tasty.
I then proceeded to to order a meal.
O i am sorry but the other member of staff has had to go out.
What a disaster.
no brains at a brains pub.
Customer service a massive fat zero.
You may play the music, but you cant cook the food.
i may try the two pound breakfast for a laff,
it apparently gets served at 8 am.
Lets hope the cook likes the sunrise.

Brilliant customer service run by friendly welsh staff who serve hearty home cooked meals at exceptionally good value. Rose the chef was exceptional and really went out of her way to cater to everyone's tastes. I would defiantly recommend to others.
