(AD Disclaimer) Berkshire Mummies was gifted lunch at The Bailiwick in exchange for an honest review. Views are those of Berkshire Mummies.
We were kindly invited to review The Bailiwick in Englefield Green and my husband and I took the opportunity to have a child-free lunch, which was such a treat. We thank Steven and Ami Ellis for a wonderful lunch.
The Bailiwick is a classic country pub nestled on the gates of Windsor Great Park, with a beautiful terrace overlooking the ancient deciduous woodland. The Bailiwick Free House is run under the leadership of Steven Ellis previously of The Oxford Blue in Old Windsor with his wife Ami as head pastry chef. We were very impressed with the standard of food and high level of customer service.
The Dining Experience
From the moment we stepped into The Bailiwick we were well looked after by Liam, Front of House Manager and his team. Our coats were taken and we were taken to our table and presented with the lunch menu and asked what drinks we would like. Drinks were served whilst we perused the menu, which was then taken. Our knowledgeable waitress was very happy to discuss items on the menu and explain them in more detail.
For starters my husband had Venison Bon Bons and I had Crispy Hot Buffalo Wings. Both were very tasty, but the Venison Bon Bons were a little taste sensation and made using venison from The Great Park.
For mains I had a salmon and prawn cocktail and I throughly enjoyed this traditional dish with some skinny fries. The salmon and prawn cocktail was beautifully presented and almost too good to eat! My husband went for the ‘Royal Stag’ Burger and skinny fries which was certainly met with approval!
To finish, we enjoyed dessert. I enjoyed the Chocolate Delice which was just the perfect chocolate treat – not too big and not too small! My husband went for the warm Apple and Cinnamon doughnuts which were just tasty mouthfuls of delight!
To be honest, there wasn’t really much we could fault at The Bailiwick, the décor tasteful to the surroundings, the staff very welcoming and helpful and the food just fantastic.
We need to return to try the Poutine ‘Canadian Chips’, a national dish of Canada, which is on the menu and highly recommended by our waitress.
The Bailiwick welcomes families and dogs; we would take our children for a Sunday Roast on a special occasion.
The Bailiwick is located right next to a gate into The Great Park and is very dog friendly – there is even a dog park! This free house is perfectly positioned for a dog walk and food / drink. There is also a terrace situated next to The Great Park entrance.
Directions and Where to Park
Address: The Bailiwick Free House, Wick Road, Englefield Green, Egham, TW20 0HN.
The Bailiwick doesn’t have a car park. However, there is free parking along Wick Road (I have marked where on the What3Words map. It is worth noting that this a popular place to walk, so would recommend arriving early to ensure you can get parked. Just up the road you will find The Savill Garden.
