The Berkshire town of Windsor has a rich royal history and you'll find no better illustration of this than in its many and varied old hostelries. People have been enjoying the hospitality offered by the town's watering holes since William the Conqueror first built a castle here in the eleventh century. Today, that reputation continues as a lively mix of locals and tourists look to quench their thirst.
From bustling alehouses that maintain a live music scene through to traditional taverns offering a more sedate atmosphere redolent of a seemingly bygone age, this book will guide you through the town's pub landscape.
