Point of Interest
“Live music from Thursday to Sunday. A local scene with a mix of different people. Great atmosphere. Great for those looking for a good night out but are not into clubbing. ”

Indian Restaurant
$$
“Indian cuisine with a twist; the menu bypasses most of the curry-house clichés in favour of signature ideas such as deep-fried, rice-coated king prawns served in a shot glass with a trio of chutneys and a splash of martini or seared scallops with chilli, chives and coriander, accompanied by spiced pea mash and chilli jam. Tikkas, tandooris and biryanis also feature, but it’s worth checking out more unusual specialities such as lamb shank with masala fig sauce.”

Bar
“An upmarket country inn. Bel and the Dragon is the perfect blend of luxurious and cosy. The succulent saddle of lamb to share is a star dish but don’t leave without trying the pink peppercorn squid or the killer clam-infused Bloody Mary.”

Restaurant
“Windsor's only pub on the river.  Admire riverside views over Eton and enjoy beer-battered fish and chips, sea bass and yellowfin seared tuna. Not a fish fan? Not to worry – there are also burgers, pasta and plenty of other pub classics on offer, too.”
