Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
If you like nothing better than a walk in the countryside with your canine companion in tow, followed by a hearty pub lunch, I recommend a ramble around Windsor Great Park rounded off by a visit to the nearby dog-friendly Bailiwick. This friendly establishment dates back to 1877 and is a traditional pub through and through, with a menu of wholesome fare, a team of warm, sociable staff, and a charming interior ﬁlled with cosy corners, rustic wooden furniture and pretty old prints. There is, of course, also a bar stocked with well-kept cask ale and ﬁne wine. You can even enjoy your tipple of choice al fresco in the lovely outside seating area if the weather is ﬁne.
The head chef and his capable team create simple, honest, fresh fare using quality ingredients, so the menu changes often. Classics given a unique twist and cooked to perfection abound on the tempting menu. For example, you might begin with pan-seared scallops paired with pea purée and Parma ham, or perhaps potted smoked mackerel topped with Bloody Mary jelly. The main-course selection features prime examples of great British cooking, with options such as succulent conﬁt pork belly accompanied by caramelised apple purée and charred asparagus, ﬂavoursome Malaysian ﬁsh stew with sticky coconut rice and steamed pak choi.
Leaving room for dessert is a must, as you won’t be able to resist delights like the clementine tart with blackcurrant sorbet, and dark chocolate torte with raspberry sorbet. All in all, walkers stopping by The Bailiwick will be rewarded well for their efforts.
