The Oxford Blue in Old Windsor is a stunning new gastropub, pretty much built from scratch to the designs of the four partners behind it.
Chef Steven Ellis is obsessed with game, incorporating it into classic dishes and shouting about its credentials to those who are quick to shun it.
There is a wealth of talent in Steven’s kitchen, while the front-of-house team, led by one of the friendliest men in pubs – Daniel Crump – emanates genuine care and interest in your dining needs.
It’s not far from the centre of Windsor or the luscious part of the River Thames, perfect for a post-lunch walk.
The gastropub’s wine list, beer, spirits and soft drinks offerings are full and interesting, making this a pub for anyone.
Chef-proprietor Steven Ellis is obsessed with game. If there’s a dish not associated with game, then leave it to Steven to make it work.
One of his specialties is braised suckling pigs trotter with black pudding, apple and sauce gribiche – simply delicious.
Steven and the team set out to create a fine dining experience for their guests, which they have arguably achieved.
