The Horse and Groom


The Horse and Groom is a traditional 18th-century pub situated right outside the gates of Windsor Castle.

We offer up to seven local and regional real ales on draught and ciders too.  We also have a fine selection of wines and champagnes.

Great food is served daily.

We have outside seating and a function room for up to 30 guests.

We are a dog friendly pub.

Follow the Windsor and Eton Ale Trail: 3 great pubs 5-10 mins apart on foot between them up to 30 draught real ales, craft beers and ciders - and great food!
