Excellent lunch. Superb food complimented by a couple of pints of very well kept Best Bitter. Good, attentive service starting with a friendly welcome and a special effort to say goodbye and thank you. Highly recommended.

We had a lovely well presented and prepared meal. Each course was quick no waiting ages for it. The atmosphere was pleasant and comfortable and had the homeless feel. Have been back since and will go again and again.

Very interesting menu with some unusual and delicious dishes. Large portions, exemplary service and such a change from basic pub food which one finds everywhere. We will definitely return.

Good morning, we always advise people to book as we can be very busy. We allow dogs in the bar area but not the dining room.

Yes, I have eaten there many times. Always found the food to be good... Service is prompt, and the bill not too high. I have never eaten in the Rose&Crown so I can't comment, although the beer there is good.

The Duke

Nick & Annie welcome you to the Duke of Edinburgh at Woodside, a traditional family run business. Here at the Duke of Edinburgh we pride ourselves in offering the highest quality of service in a welcoming and friendly atmosphere. We offer the very best in both a-la-Carte and Bar menu food, with Chef specials offered nightly. Sample our wonderful fayre and accompany your meal with choices of fine wines.

We are located just off the Windsor Road in the hamlet of Woodside, just half a mile from Ascot Racecourse. There is ample parking available, and we have a nice garden too.

The pub is over 200 years-old and has low beams, giving a cosy atmosphere. The pub was recently completely refurbished, during which time the restaurant was extended and new toilet facilities were installed.

There are two TVs in the lounge area which show the football or other sports events. As well as various beers and guest ales, there are numerous excellent wines & champagnes available.

Just along from the lounge bar area is the restaurant, with table sizes to fit all occasions (parties up to 18 catered for).

The Duke provides free WiFi access (high speed compu-fix system) for its patrons, and offers a smoking shelter with heaters, in addition to the spacious beer garden which also boasts a large avery sporting numerous types of budgerigars.

We do allow dogs in the bar and garden, but do bring a 'doggy bag' in case of an accident.
