Where shall we have lunch in Windsor?

Everyone who comes to town for the day asks the question ‘where shall we have lunch in Windsor’?

“The History of every major Galactic Civilization tends to pass through three distinct and recognizable phases, those of Survival, Inquiry and Sophistication, otherwise known as the How, Why, and Where phases. For instance, the first phase is characterized by the question ‘How can we eat?’, the second by the question ‘Why do we eat?’, and the third by the question ‘Where shall we have lunch?”

The Restaurant at the End of the Universe (Douglas Adams)

Phase three sorted – have lunch in Windsor at The Boatman riverside gastropub and restaurant.

We’ve been told it’s the best Sunday roast lunch in Windsor and so it would be advisable to book a table to avoid disappointment! Each Sunday we pick two different meats to serve, and of course you can also eat from the main menu which has vegetarian options. Our meat choices include two from the following each week:

  • Roast Rump of Beef
  • Roast Leg of Pork
  • Roast Leg of Lamb
  • Roast Supreme of Chicken
  • Roast Breast of Turkey

Call us to book a table. We have space for both small and large bookings with tables near an open fire in the bar which are very popular.
