      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Situated at the rise of the Campden Hill Road on the Kensington/ Nottinghill borders, The Windsor Castle is that rarest of creatures - an English pub not in danger of being turned into an anaemic chain bar. The pub is laid out of a series of interconnecting small rooms furnished in weathered dark wood - many a drinking session has taken place here. Not for the Windsor a bunch of mock horse-brasses or books culled from a local second-hand bookshop, rather this is the real thing - a genuine Dickensien pub experience. In winter the rooms fill up with customers standing elbow to elbow, but the sense of the place being a comforting and cosy refuge from the cold winds outside is unmistakeable. During Spring and the Summer the tree-canopied beer garden (in itself a rarity in this part of London) comes into its own as parties sit around tables and drink the afternoon or evening away. Two other plus points; firstly the fine traditional pub food, with an emphasis on sausages (best selection in London), and secondly the friendly bar staff - most often to be seen with a (non-fake) smile, knowing that people come to the pub not to be "trendy" but to drink....after all it is the Windsor is all about!
