Dining out in the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead is a highly rated and most palatable experience.

There's a wide range of restaurants, pubs, bars and cafes to choose from that suits all tastes and budgets.

Enjoy a morning relaxing over a cooked or continental breakfast at a family-friendly cafe. 

Or celebrate a special occasion with a traditional afternoon tea at one of our restaurants or hotels.  Check out our Afternoon Tea with a Twist page for some great location ideas and far-from-traditional teas!

Windsor and Eton are crammed with stylish cafes, continental restaurants, historic pubs, wine bars, family-friendly restaurants, hotels with fine dining and an amazing nightlife scene.

Every taste is catered for, from Thai to Moroccan, South American to Asian and French to Indian.

Maidenhead's town centre offers an excellent choice of pizza, pasta, pubs and wine bars.

There's riverside dining by the Thames and fine dining at the local hotels.

The nearby village of Bray is a haven for foodies as it is home to the three Michelin-starred Waterside Inn (the Roux brothers) and Fat Duck (Heston Blumenthal) plus Caldesi in Campagna (Giancarlo Caldesi).  In the pretty village of Cookham you will find Malik's, reputed to be Heston Blumenthal's favourite Indian restaurant.

Windsor, Maidenhead and Ascot host regular Farmers' Markets and food markets.

There's nothing better on a warm, sunny day than to buy some fresh produce from the local producers and head off for a lazy picnic in the park.

Food Hygiene Rating System

Next time you're dining out or having a takeaway you'll be able to see the hygiene ratings of your local eatery – from fine restaurants to kebab vans – thanks to a new council scheme: The Food Hygiene Rating System.

Places that prepare and serve food are now awarded up to five stars following a food hygiene inspection.
