The Carpenters Arms, Windsor

"Beer range varies" means just that, the range of ales changes on a regular basis (ie: they do not stock one or two particular ales all of the time). This pub is a Nicholsons, so has a list from which to buy, which is even more reason to praise the work of the publican. There are not many pubs with 6 ales on, all in good nick, hence the aknowledgement from CAMRA. Windsor had improved over the last few years on the ale front and the Carps is one of the best Windsor has to offer. If you think Windsor is bad, go to Slough!

Beer and a pie - the best staple diet and the best place to get it!

The Greyhound, Eton WIck

I am not sure that I am reading about the right pub in these reviews! I have always felt extremely welcome here. The beer is in good nick and Timothy Taylor Golden Best is unusual for this area, as is the Tinners. Julie is a great landlady and its a shame the lease is up for sale. I get round quite a few pubs and this one, as a back street locals boozer, is a good one. It is a little tired inside, but this is a pub, not your front room!

The Duke of Connaught, Windsor

This is a great pub. I like the atmosphere and the friendly staff. Usually has a guest other then the Greene King beers. Mr B_F should be thankful for any selection at all in a Greene King pub! I quite liked the St Edmunds, so its a shame its gone (even as a CAMRA-minded non lager drinker!) At least there was a choice of whether to have your beer with a creamy head or not.

The burgers are great - cooked exactly as they should be!
