Situated on Church Street in the historic Berkshire town of Windsor is the Ye Olde Kings Head, a venue that was built during the reign or Kind Henry VIII and has housed the famous play-write William Shakespeare. The reputed oldest Inn in the area remains to this day and, despite a number of refurbishments, has kept its period look, which is combined with a sublime food offering to provide a feast for the eyes as well as the stomach.
Diners are sure to be salivating just looking through a Ye Old Kings Head menu that can boast an array of hearty treats and exquisite delicacies. From starters that include a glorious Parma ham and sweet cherry combo and a prawn adorned piece of French bread, to a main course selection that ranges between a lemon rice accompanied salmon steak that falls apart in the mouth and a succulent set of pork medallions – complete with Mangy tout and spicy potatoes. For a taste of the truly British, the steak and ale pie is always an option, while the Cordon Bleu with Ratatouille will take the taste buds that little bit further out. Round the meal off in style with a divine dessert from a selection that consists of a range of cakes and a chocolate drizzled strawberry and melon number.
With a number of the area’s major attractions just a hop, skip and a jump away, including the Queen Victoria Statue, the St. John the Baptist parish church and the iconic Windsor Castle, Ye Olde Kings Head is a fantastic stop off point for a bit of respite amidst a day of exploration. Come in on one of Britain’s few warm days (or wrap up and brave the cold) and dine outside on the cobbles.
