Description: The Fox And Castle is in parts 500 years old.It is your quintessential Black & White timbered building. According to the local historian there has been a pub on this site since 1216 a year after the Magna Carta was signed.We have adequate parking for cars and coaches and a very large garden probably seat in excess of a 100. We are family and dog friendly, log fires in winter and pims in the summer.We have around 40 whiskies and 40 specialist gins oh and a great wine list. We can cater for large parties pre booked and serve very high quality traditional English pub food.The building in its time has been in parts a butcher a baker sadly not a candle stick maker.We as new owners have since December 20th 2018 taken on The Fox And Castle and completely refurbished the property, we are a small Pub company that already own four pubs in the neighbouring town of Windsor namely The Horse & Groom outside the gates of Windsor Castle,The Waterman’s Arms in Historic Eton The piper Bar & Queen Vic

Much longed for catch up lunch with a friend. Varied menu to suit everyone, from sandwiches, light bites to main meals. I had the burger and chips, very substantial great quality burger, amazing crunchy and fluffy chips. The covid regulations were followed to the letter. Our waitress (didn't catch her name) was lovely, friendly and professional. The huge garden looked amazing, so many tables in a peaceful village location, will definitely go back when it is warmer to enjoy.

We were at Lego land with our two boys aged 3 and 5. We had such a fun day and they were exhausted and hungry.

I checked on google for a pub near by serving food and the Fox And castle appeared. I called once to ask if they had outdoor seating and the manager advised to come on down and they would look after us.

We arrived at the pub and we were welcomed by such lovely people. We were sat under the canopy as there was no space under the heaters. I spoke to a colleague such a lovely lady and explained that we have two young children and we will eat dinner and leave to get back to london. They were so accommodating and offered us a gazebo with the heaters in there. We ordered the boys dinner and the food was also amazing.

We just wanted to say thank you so much for the outstanding service food and hospitality.

We will definitely be back again.

Following lockdown(s) we were finally allowed to dine outside with our son - we live in Cornwall and he lives in Berkshire. Fortunately the weather was with us and for our late lunch we rocked up at the Fox & Castle without a reservation (4 of us) but the lovely chap in the beer garden was most welcoming and before we knew we were sat at a sunny outdoor table. Service was slick, food was delicious and ambience was superb. We are already planning a return.

Not being able to eat in a restaurant this mother's day was not an issue when having a takeaway from The Fox and Castle's special Mother's Day Menu. Our roasts were incredible. I had the lamb which was very tender with really nice minted gravy. There were generous slices of beef too and lovely seasonal veg. We've not done much home takeaway's from restaurants during lockdown-but had we known how good they were (just as good as the pub - just minus the draft beer!) we would have. Really looking forward to coming back and visiting when things open.
