The Windsor Castle has a fascinating nook-and-cranny feel. It’s a great pub. Overall it feels dark, tight, and cramped but extremely well loved. There are three main areas around the bar, the largest of which is divided even further into smaller rooms. Each of these areas is separated by very short doors (4.5 or 5 feet high), so you have to duck down and step over the tall sill to squeeze into the next space. A short history posted on the wall says the pub started in 1835. The walls and bar are paneled in old oak (the patina on the wood eclipses anything we ever see from the western US). There are some very nice old wooden settles with very narrow seats. The floors are mostly wood and the ceiling is painted a dark rust color. The windows have small panes, some of which look extremely old (i.e. imperfect and distorted). There is also a large outdoor garden on one side of the pub.
There are four real ales/ciders to choose from. On our visit they were: Adnams Broadside, Fuller’s London Pride, Timothy Taylor Landlord, and Weston’s Old Rosie Cloudy Scrumpy.
