The Horse and Groom Windsor is a traditional pub dating back to 1719, prior to this it is thought to have been a medieval market stall or shop. The lattice Windows, hanging lanterns, and arched beams give the watering hole a very tudor-esque feel (not surprising as the building dates back to the 14th century apparently with deeds showing a mixture of tenements, shops and markets!).
The food at the Horse and Groom includes some lovely home made dishes. We tried the hobgoblin beer battered cod served with some wonderful chunky chips and exceptional mushy peas. We also enjoyed the deep-fried brie (see photo) which was perfectly melted and served with a salad garnish and cranberry sauce.
Having said this, I did like the look of the Sausage Filled Yorkshire Pud (Cumberland Sausage Ring with Mashed Potato & Onion Gravy, £8.95), and was considering the salmon and dill fish cake as a starter (served on leaf salad with side of tartare £5.95), with a Tortilla wrap as my main.
Service was friendly, and if you manage to bag yourself a window seat, there is an unrivaled view of the entrance to Windsor castle.
