Review: The Windsor Castle Pub, Victoria

This place has an amazing feel to it the second you walk in. For starters, it’s very popular, and is always buzzing. On top of that, the pub is split into five sections by huge opaque glass walls, that lead the way to the back room which is full of sofas and an open fire.

It’s a Sam Smiths pub so no music, no TVs, no WiFi, but the sound of people having a good time catching up is plenty.IMG_7414

My boyfriend had a couple great beers, I went for the white wine as usual, and we decided to share a plate of nachos. They kindly had a big sign above the bar that said the staff could help with any allergen information, but I have to admit, the nachos were thoroughly disappointing.

For £10, I was expecting a big plate of very cheesy nachos with tons of pulled pork and toppings. Instead, we got a healthy spoonful of pork, chopped tomatoes which were advertised as salsa, little pots of guacamole and sour cream, and barely any cheese on a small amount of nachos which pretty much crumbled each time we picked one up.

I would really recommend someone at Sam Smiths take a good look into either the pricing of their nachos, or what’s on offer, because I won’t be ordering food there again. However, I will definitely be going back to the pub. Even though it was busy and probably understaffed, the bartenders were really friendly and the drinks were nice. The ambiance is also something that I haven’t found anywhere else in London to date.

If you’re ever on the Pimlico side of Victoria, pop by and let me know if you agree!
