We have always had really great meals and a lovely time at The Greene Oak but last night was not a good experience. The initial service for drinks and order taking was great but then things deteriorated.

The starters were odd. I had devilled cod tongue which came out like a brown splodge on top of a piece of toast with no thought to how it was dressed. The main course salt baked squash turned out to be mostly lettuce and was in fact a salad which was an unexpected cold main course.

The two orders of main course hake were delivered cold and very crusty having languished on the pass for some time. Clearly we sent them back but it meant us eating out of sync with our friends. Finally we had cheese for dessert which actually turned out to be two hunks of cheddar with a very dry Eccles cake. Somewhat sub standard and a little bizarre.

Trying to get anyone’s attention was difficult in terms of reordering drinks, making a complaint and difficulty in getting the bill at the end of the meal which took 20 minutes.

To add insult to injury the floor is very slippery and I slid dangerously on the wooden floor just outside the kitchen.

Not a good experience and unlikely to return.

The service was great and the staff fantastic. Sadly being first seating for Sunday roast and the food was just warm. Side dishes sent back twice and eventually all fine Did notice another couple of customers sent meals back. What a shame

Had an amazing dinner, we would heartily recommend you try this dining experience. They have a seasonal menu, so no two visits are quite the same.

On a beautiful autumnal day, outside was bustling. The recused autumn menu didn’t disappoint. A lovely marrow salad with cobnuts and a piquant dressing was a successful new starter. Back my usual moules frites for my main ( well there is an ‘r’ in month now!). Friend has the baked swede. We had fought it was a hit rush but no-another salad! Puddings: always the seasonal crumble for me; pecan tart for friend. Helpful, friendly, scrummy and great value as always. Back in 2 weeks. And I’ve booked for December! 😀🤩

Outstanding Sunday lunch, the best I have had in a very long time. Generous portions, excellent choice (including for vegans), kid friendly. It feels special while still being relaxed and informal. Will definitely be back.

If you are seeking quality food then this is not the place to go. I must say the service was average at best with ongoing training taking place like a floor show. However the big issue is with the food. The bread as an opener, was actually quite good. Starter, cold sardines on soggy toast, terrible, croquettes with a ridiculous amount of salt making them inedible. Mains, rabbit dish with supposed potato dumplings which looked like supermarket gnocchi. The bunny portion was one tiny leg, hardly enough to feed a sparrow. I could go on but will stop there. Windsor needs a good quality restaurant for locals, sadly this is not it. The menu is very limited and lacks substance, it reflects the whole sad dining fiasco. Based upon our experience we also have questions regarding the validity of the general feedback, or maybe we just caught them on a very bad night?
Perhaps Brucan Pubs need to focus on establishing rather than expanding?

A friend’s birthday lunch. How lovely. The first time indoors and although quiet the atmosphere was convivial. Friend chose the steak tartare and wild rabbit. Both delicious she said. As a non meat-eater and occasional fish eater, I had a fish soup and fish and chips. I’d always bang on about more vegetable and vegan options and found the non-meat/fish options limited. But great value and such friendly service. Back next week!

Great place for lunch. Menu was a refreshing change from the usual gastro pub fare. We sat indoors although there was an outside option. I had questions about the menu which were well answered and allowed me to make a good choice. I will be back to try the rest of the menu. Good lunchtime set menu.
