Martin and Wendy Higgins are proud to welcome you to The Prince Albert. It is a traditional pub with the warm welcome you would expect, yet with a contemporary twist. With it’s sumptuous leather chairs, modern styling and rich wood furniture you will feel right at home from the very first moment you step foot inside. We are a disabled friendly establishment that can offer facilities in the bar, restaurant and the hotel for any guest through the main entrance, as well as having a purpose built disabled washroom. Children and dogs are both welcome.
I have been to The Prince Albert with work colleagues - both for food and for drinks - on multiple occasions. I would describe it as "cheap and cheerful" and this is exactly what you get. If you're looking for 5* luxury, then this is...not the place for you and they are not trying to be that.
The drinks and good are very reasonably priced for Windsor and the food is pub food - albeit, I have to say, the halloumi fries are DELIGHTFUL! The atmosphere is down to earth and great for a chilled Thursday or Friday night.
The beer garden backs on to the car park and the car park could do with a bit of a clean.... there are piles of rubbish and old wooden drawers etc. that have been left to rot, so it's a bit of an eye sore. One time we attended and a poor little boy had travel sickness, so got out the car and was sick and it was just left and not cleaned up, so this definitely needs some attention.
That being said, we have only ever had very good service and have sometimes attended in large groups of 12+; the staff have always been very patient and accommodating, so for me I would definitely return in the future and as long as you know what to expect, The Prince Albert is a very good venueMore
Visited here after spending the day in Legoland as it was only 5 mins down the road. Absolutely fantastic food, very delicious. Service was brilliant and the lady who served us was so friendly and we briefly saw the owners who were very friendly too....Just a warning though if you order the chicken wings they are HOT! But they were still so tasty and we polished them off (sweating afterwards though!). We will return on our next trip to Windsor.More
Ordered from deliveroo.
As a chef myself I’d taken the day off and thought it would be nice for someone else to cook dinner.
So I put my trust in the Prince Albert as I had heard good things.
The picture speaks a thousand words...really.
I mean birds eye finest frozen veg? Cremated meat, dry rubbery potatoes , and is that smash?! I don’t know but it was just dreadful.
Gravy came on the side - very very sweet , needs to be Seriously toned down.
Why not try making cauliflower cheese or something? Put some effort in , it’s not worth the steep price tag.
I can only imagine the foods sitting there after being prepped in the morning and you’re nuking it when an order comes in as you can tell it’s been microwaved.
We went to Lego Land then stayed here after a full on day in hot weather with two young children. It is literally a 5min drive (amazing). Car Park on site (free - amazing). Check-in took about 2 and a half mins (amazing). Sat in...the beer garden had several cold pints and delicious food, well priced and all on site (amazing). Room was lovely, we stayed in room 1, it had an en suite with shower, plenty of room for our travel cot, nice and clean, a fan and fridge there too (amazing). Had a cooked breakfast in the morning, alfresco (amazing). Staff were.... you guessed it, amazing! They let us have a drink to take to our room after stop tap, which in my book is amazing 🤣.
All in all, we loved our stay here, it was AMAZING!More
Comical! The waitress didn’t know what a bitter shandy was, it took several conversations and a returned drink before we ordered something else instead. The food order was missing coleslaw (as described on the menu), the food was average, the bill was wrong and there...was no loo roll. The only saving grace is that the staff were polite and apologetic. Won’t be returning!More
I booked at short notice as I was going to the birthday parade at the castle. As such I was not sure what to expect but was most pleasantly surprised. Although part of a pub on a main road, the rooms are in a separate...block and were extremely quiet. Ignore any messages you might get from third party hotel booking sites which say bring your own towels and bedding as this is provided and everything was very clean and the facilities were perfect. Staff were very helpful and I also ate in the pub on one of the nights, the food and drinks being well prepared and delicious. I have addd this to my list of hotels to use in the future.More
Came here for lunch yesterday for my nans 80th birthday! Amazing service before I even entered the building.
My son is a type 1 diabetic. So needed to know carbohydrate values for the meal he was having. I phoned the venue 2 hours before our...table was booked. And spoke to the chef, unfortunately I didn’t get his name. But he was unbelievably helpful. Went through all the values that I needed. My son was diagnosed type one during lock down last year, and due to covid we haven’t eaten out very often and I often feel anxious in case I get values wrong etc… however I felt so at ease going into the Albert due to having already had the conversation with the chef. To top off feeling very satisfied before even going in the day was topped off with the food being amazing too. Highly recommended. Will definitely be returning.More
We booked a table for five & a baby in a pram. When we arrived we were sat at a window seat. We ordered our drinks & was then told they had run out of Porn Star Martinis (even though they were advertising it on...a chalk board right in front of the bar). Not a problem, ordered something else.
Lady came to take our food order for 4 adults & a 4 y/o child.
Food took almost an hour to come & when it arrived they had missed out 1 meal.
Very apologetic & said it would be 5 minutes.
After 15 minutes I called a waitress over to find out what the delay was. She informed us that they had forgotten the Hunters Chicken & that it would be 5 minutes and she stated they would take 10% off the bill.
15 minutes the 5th meal arrived. My son in law felt very uncomfortable as we had all finished & he was eating alone.
I called the waitress over & told her to take the price of his meal off the bill. (Which they did).
We all felt so uncomfortable after that. The staff were talking about & staring at us. I have honestly never felt so uncomfortable in a restaurant. One waitress in particular was especially rude (tanned skin, curly hair). She made us feel like we were an inconvenience.
Really didn't want to stay for pudding but my grandson wanted an ice cream so reluctantly, we stayed for pudding.
Our bill was almost £100 & we are staying in Windsor for 3 nights & would definitely have come back had the service been better. But, quite honestly we will never come back to this place again.
Long waiting time for food.
