    The Crooked House: Afternoon Tea

    by SallyM Updated Oct 28, 2012
    Crooked House, Windsor
    1 more image

    The Crooked House is a fascinating old building near the castle. We went for afternoon tea as part of a 'gift experience' - this included the most expensive version of afternoon tea (the 'Queen Elizabeth'), with sandwiches, scones with jam and cream, mini patisserie, sweet biscuits, fruitcake and fruit garnish. The tea was good (proper leaf tea, with a strainer), but would have been even better in daintier china. The sandwiches were quite good (ham and mustard, cheese and tomato, egg mayonnaise and smoked salmon), with the crusts cut off. The scones were excellent - light and fluffy, with a generous helping of jam and cream. The mini patisserie was however a bit of a disappointment: a tiny millefeuille and a small chocolate marshmallow confection. The biscuits (chocolate or strawberry shortcake) were OK but the fruitcake had a rather mass-produced look. The fresh fruit garnish was grapes (with pips - not seedless).

    Favorite Dish: If I went here again I would just have the cream tea with scones and jam, which were definitely the best part.

    the cafe

    This was a convenient restaurant near the river and the castle. We sat on the paved area and ate our snack.

    Favorite Dish: I had the chicken pasty which contained chunks of chicken, potatoes, peas and sweet corn. It was quite large and tasty.
    My daughter had a Meal Deal- jacket potato with tuna plus a drink.
    With so many visitors to Windsor, it was very convenient for the car park too.

    West Cornwall Pasty Co.: Pasties

    by Dabs Updated Jun 5, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    West Cornwall Pasty Co.

    This is one of a chain of shops in the UK selling pasties, a pastry shell containing a variety of ingredients. It's great for a quick meal and they are ready to go.

    Favorite Dish: I liked the bacon and cheese pasty, even the medium size one was very filling. I tried a traditional steak one at a different location and didn't like it nearly as well. The bacon and cheese one was a pastry filled with bacon, cheese and potatoes.

  • Windsor Great Perk: Excellant mixture of cafe and sweet shop!

    by Tim1704 Updated Apr 4, 2011

    The food there is simple but very tasty. was served with a smile, at the table, and quickly. A very nice clean and stylish environment. You can order from the sweet menu, which contains all the old-fashioned ones! It is all well priced as well. The jacket potatoes are a must!! Also, if you fancy it, like I did, you can have a sneaky glass of wine or bottle!!

    Favorite Dish: Jacket Potato with cheese, beans and spring onions. With posh crisps and salad. Also the all day breakfast is lovely. The presentation for a cafe is amazing!

    Windsor Great Perk: Inside the Windsor Royal Station Complex

    by gordonilla Updated Apr 4, 2011
    Windsor Great Perks

    The restaurant was an interesting mix of restaurant and sweet shop.

    Sweet Shop:
    During my visit 16 July 2005 - the cost of sweets was 72p for 100g - they seem to have many many shelves of jars containing sweets. You can even place an order when you are sitting in the restaurant.

    Restaurant:
    This was busy, during my visit - the menu is not that extensive but the menu is outlined below:
    All day Breakfasts
    Jacket Potatoes (hot and cold fillings)
    Soup
    Freshly Made Sandwiches
    Grilled Panini
    "Posh" Crisps
    Cakes, slices and snacks
    Coffee, Tea, Water and soft drinks

    It does not sell alcohol!

    The wiating staff were very attentive; and the only down side is that it is quite small.

    Favorite Dish: Mexican salad, warm bread and water

    Carpenters' Arms: Nice enough pub

    by Sjalen Written May 24, 2010
    1 more image

    Carpenters' Arms is just a block away from the castle and was one of the first places we stumbled on when desperate to rest our feet after the castle visit. When we saw the board outside advertising St Austell beers, there was nothing to do but to step inside, since we love this Cornish brewery. They welcomed children, although not in the rooms next to the bar but that's not unusual. The St Austell turned out to be Tribute which was well kept, and they also had several other interesting beers on tap as well as bottle, even if it wasn't the biggest choice I've ever seen. Staff were friendly and we really enjoyed the general ambiance here with visitors being everything from posh local ladies sipping white wine, to tourist families like ourselves, and locals enjoying good beer.

    When we looked at the menu, we realised that we'd seen a similar one before, and realised that the pub is owned by the same people that own one of our regulars in York, so then we knew what the menu would be like. Not the most exciting but perfectly acceptable pub grub with a decent variety.

    Favorite Dish: Ploughmans.

    Garden & Grill: Not really a local eatery

    by geetamallya Written May 3, 2010

    They have two set of menus. One which is mainly thai cuisines (which we didn't try) and the other the typical local food. We had a fish and chips, and a mushroom omelette with toast. The fish and chips was a filling lunch , but not the mushroom omelette.

    The food generally in the area isnt cheap. We paid about 16 pounds for 2 people.

    Crown and Cushion Pub: Homey little pub with good food

    by rexvaughan Written Jul 9, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The nice soups
    3 more images

    This delightful little pub/inn beckoned us in for a spot of lunch. It was a cloudy cool day so soup and sandwich sounded great and the Crown and Cushion Inn did not disappoint. It describes itself as a 'quirky 16th century coaching inn' and indeed has the welcoming feel of one with a distinctly friendly, homey atmosphere which was probably enhanced by a group of gray haired ladies lunching at the next table. They appeared to be local folk. The bar and little lounge area just said 'little English pub' to me. It is also an inn or bed & breakfast and my wife and I agreed that if we ever get the chance to stay in Windsor/Eton, we will check it out.

    Favorite Dish: I had minnestrone and a sandwich of cheddar with mango chutney on a baguette. My wife had a lovely carrot and coriander soup. I washed mine down with a Fullers Chicwick Bitter and my wife had tea. A quite simple, but very tasty and, by UK standards, inexpensive lunch. Sandwiches are GBP 4.95 and soup 3.95.

    Crooked Tea House: Afternoon tea

    Afternoon tea
    1 more image

    Just a short walk away from Windsor Castle on High Street, this is a lovely place to stop and have tea. On a weekday in January, there was no one besides us in the upstairs level but imagine that's not the case on the weekends or in the peak summer travel months. You can make a reservation during the week but not on weekends so expect to queue in the warmer months on the weekend.

    Favorite Dish: Tea time tends to start around 2pm but they said we could still order tea even though it was only around noon. I opted for the Duchess of Bedfordhsire, a cream tea (£7.50) which is just a pot of tea and scones with jam and clotted cream while Kat opted for the Queen Anne, a more elaborate tea (£13) that came with sandwiches, fresh fruit and fruitcake in addition to the scones and tea. She promptly extracted all the poor cucumbers from the sandwiches but made a good dent in the rest of the sandwiches, the fresh fruit was lovely and the scones were very nice.

    It was a bit expensive but expected it to be so for a touristy place near the Castle. The also serve breakfast, lunch and dinner.

    The nearest pub to where my grandparents and father lived,that is 2 doors away so i know it well. Can get busy if there is football on but otherwise quiet and a nice place to visit. Always full of locals. Small garden out back,pool table and darts. Always enjoy popping in even just for a quick pint. Recently restructured and smartened up after being taken over by some old friends of mine, Ken and Jan, who run an excellent cellar.
