The food was good. The drinks were good. The sticky toffee pudding was wonderful. We only shared a sandwich so we cannot comment on how authentic the pub food is. The dessert was perfect. I had custard, not ice cream on it.

This is a very strong contender for lunch or dinner during your day (or more) in Windsor. It's right near the Castle, very nice and British, a few tables outside, and I enjoyed excellent fish and chips...and friendly service. Enjoyed TH&G very much.

Fantastic pub right next to Windsor Castle entry/exit. The young gentlemen serving here are a delight. Myles is just a natural with the patrons and even let me try a couple of Old English Ales to see if I like them. Thanks heaps to you...More

At some time in the sixteenth century, a small timber-framed building existed on this site. It was likely to have previously been a medieval market stall, or even a shop. Deeds from the fourteenth century show a mix of tenements, market stalls and shops in the area. The current Horse & Groom was originally known as the lower Rose & Crown. From the records at the Licensed Victuallers' Association, the first licensee was listed in 1719. It is more likely, however, that the pub was there much earlier, but no records exist to prove it. The first licensee was one Peter Tillier, who was the tenant for two years. A17th century Old Traditional pub outside the gates of Windsor castle In 1769, the lower Rose & Crown was sold to a Henry Reddington for 271 pounds and 17 shillings. When the name was changed to the Horse and Groom in 1792, the recorded licensee was Richard Knight. At this point, the property was in the ownership of one William Foster, a Windsor brewer. The mortgage of £250 at that time was made to a James Dauncey. In 1837 the pub was sold to Neville & Reid as part of the Windsor Brewery Estate.
