Description: The Duchess of Cambridge officially opened on 21 June 2011 after an extensive refurbishment to ensure she was able to carry her Royal name with pride. And in fact The Duchess of Cambridge pub in Windsor is the only pub in the whole of the world which has the name of the newest member of the Royal family. Seating almost 120 customers and offering fantastic food, from breakfast through lunch,and on to dinner. Plus a drinks list to match every occasion, including fine wines and ales from our own Whole Hop Brewery in Hertford - The Duchess is the perfect pub for you to rest your Royal or not so Royal legs! With The Duchess pub just across the road, or should we say cannonball shot away (!) From the Castle, it is a pub that will welcome you as a tourist to the town or as someone who lives and works within the lovely city of Windsor. Freshly prepared for you at the time you order it. Yes, that is what we do at The Duchess. Guests of our lovely Windsor pub can relax as their food is prepared just they way they like it. So if you are in need of a quick bite to eat and refreshment in Windsor then we are the perfect stop. And if the clock isn't an issue then we have a selection of starters, mains and desserts to keep you occupied and off the streets for a little while longer. We look forward to seeing you

We were on a family holiday in the Windsor area and were looking for a nice bar with good food and drink. We came across the Duchess of Cambridge and we were not disappointed! The staff were so friendly and welcoming. We were greeted by Jamie, who took the time to give us some advice about the food and drink on offer and chatted with us about our holiday. The food and drinks arrived and they were spot on was, big thanks to Violet who prepared the food. Would highly recommend this location. Try it, you won't be disappointed.

This is our go to pub for lunch. We meet up in Windsor 4/5 times a year and we always have lunch here. Two of us visited here on Friday 17th and as always the service and food were great. We have had lunch in other places but always come back here. It’s bright and clean and very friendly. We will be back very soon.

Visited this place for the first time with the missus since it was a slug and lettuce!!!

Will try and keep this brief in points.
1. great welcome, acknowledged by 2 staff polite and both friendly.
2. Quick and efficient with menu and drinks when ordered.
3.flexible with changing tables from inside to outside no quibbles.
4. Had the tapas 4 for 20.00 Portion was very generous and the food was delicious.
5. Thai chili chicken bites, mushroom with Stilton, garlic prawns and Halloumi highly recommend !

6. So impressed with how the staff handled an individual customer who was extremely rude to the waitress, so rude the outside area went very quiet!! We all heard the arrogance and disgusting way he spoke to her. Really upset her but she stood her ground well, took his order and escalated accordingly. 2 other members of staff brought out his food and drink, but the the little sh*t decided he didn’t want it any more and told them he isn’t going to pay and continued being aggressive.
Eventually he left and we all spoke about the incident and applauding the way management and the waitresses handled this situation. Thanks Chloe for your hospitality and to your colleague who had to take the order off the aggressive man! Well done girls !!

I included point 6 as I want management to know and acknowledge this review regarding the great work your staff do especially in these hard times!!!

We will definitely be back soon as we loved the service and the food!!! The outside area is very cosy thanks for putting on the small lights .

See you soon!!

If the staffs friendly attitude and interactions with their customers and staff are anything to go by McMullens must treat their staff like gods. All the staff here were brilliant, (friendly, chatty and fun even though they were busy) and the food was just as good.

I was served an excellent ale in a tankard - my heart jumped and my soul gave a little cheer (I dislike the usual tulip glasses that so many places use) and it did the same when the food arrived! I had the steak and ale pie, a real pie with golden pastry and a very firm lid (even though it was douced in gravy), excellent chips, and a large portion of seasonal greens which were just the right side of al dente. My partner has the gammon, eggs and chips and he couldn't finish it all.

I'll definatley be back again, although next time they might have to roll me out and down to the station!
