On Sunday 16th December 2018, my husband, little one and I went to The Greene Oak, Oakley Green, Windsor for Sunday lunch. We were invited to eat at the pub in exchange for this review.
The first thing that struck us about the pub was the cosy, relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. Upon arrival we were seated at our table and given the menu to peruse. Both the children’s and adult’s menu had a great selection on offer and it was good to see a ‘No and Low List’ on the drinks menu.
We ordered and our drinks and food arrived promptly. To start I had spiced parsnip and bramley apple soup, which was not only delicious but also perfect for a damp December day and my husband had half a pint of prawns.
For mains we all went for a roast, well you have to on a Sunday don’t you! My little one and myself had roast lamb and my husband roast chicken. The children’s portion was very generous, in fact all the roasts were large but there was plenty on the plate from Yorkshire puddings, pigs in blankets, crispy roasts, a selection of vegetables and plenty of meat. This was accompanied with a side dish of cauliflower cheese, additional gravy and a pot of sauce or jelly to compliment the meat. I have to say this was the best roast we have eaten in along time.
We were all full after our mains and opted to share a pudding as I couldn’t resist trying the frozen peanut butter, chocolate chip cookies and candied peanuts. The pudding certainly didn’t disappoint, it was just a shame we decided to share as we all wanted a bit more!
The staff in the pub were all very welcoming, attentive and friendly and we loved the decor, especially the sinks in the toilets!
We will certainly put the pub on our radar as a destination to return for a Sunday roast or a drink in the summer, as the beer garden outside looked appealing for a drink with it’s quirky horse trailers.
