The Fox & Hounds
If there’s one place to go and experience what weekend life in Windsor could be like on a regular basis, The Fox and Hounds is it. This relaxed pub, with its tempting outdoor tables, generous portions and seriously chunky chips, is just a short drive from the town centre, but feels worlds apart from the tourist-heavy streets. It’s positioned by the Bishops Gate entrance to the Great Park in Englefield Green and, as such, it’s not uncommon to see a horse tethered to the fence in its garden. Riders dismount and refresh after a hack through the neighbouring grounds, setting the tone for a relaxed, locally charged atmosphere. Family-friendly, dog-friendly, anyone-friendly, this is one of Windsor’s true gems.
