The ultimate destination for food enthusiasts

A cosy establishment in the leafy backstreets of East Finchley, where patrons gather to indulge their taste buds in delectable, fully house-made British cuisine. Prioritising sustainability, the venue adheres to a minimal waste policy and strives to source produce locally, including Gins and Vodka from the renowned Sacred Spirits in Highgate. Even the wine list, which is predominantly organic and sustainable, boasts a low carbon footprint.
Originally established as a beer house in the late 1700s, in proximity to the Old Drovers' Road, a toll-free back road of the district, this hidden gem has witnessed the passage of cattle and pigs enroute to the now-defunct weekly pig market.
Under the loving stewardship of landlords Eamonn and Arina, the pub underwent a comprehensive refurbishment in 2022, transforming it into a beloved hub for the local community. Here, drinkers, foodies, families, and couples come to enjoy fine house-made pies and superb Sunday roasts paired with an exceptional selection of British real ales and craft beers. The Windsor Castle also offers community engagement through popular events like the monthly pub quiz and folk sessions.

Shazam, the most used app in the pub?!

The landlords take pride in their thoughtfully curated playlists, focusing on Jazz, Soul, Reggae and Funk. Their musical selections have become a talking point for customers, to the extent that many have requested the Windsor team to share the playlists!
