The Windsor Castle does nothing to dispel the reputation the English have for eccentricity. From the outside this pub could be mistaken for an antique shop, on entering it's like walking into a small museum devoted to the British royal family, in particular the House of Windsor.
Every available inch of space, be it wall or ceiling, is covered in a fascinating collection of commemorative plates, pots, mugs, thimbles, glassware, photographs and prints. There must be several thousand individual items on display and which have to be seen to be believed.
Apart from the free exhibition, the other draw here is the excellent Thai food. It's the standard Thai choices but freshly cooked, very appetising and reasonably priced. Later in the evening the tables get booked for diners, so it may be an idea to reserve one, although there is a dining room upstairs for the overflow. Usually a choice of three real ales.

Quite simply the greatest pub i've ever been to.All due respect to The Harp/Lamb & Flag & The Grenadier this is now my fave pub in London.An absolute treasure trove of memorabilia which the landlord is only too pleased to show you round & explain the history of. Anywhere that has Guy Gibson's flight log of THAT raid above the bar has to be worth a visit.Wonderful!Wonderful!Wonderful! place. O and by the way the ale's top notch too.Next time me & the boys are in town we will forgo the usual pub crawl & just come here. It's that good!!!!!
