The Courtyard, just off the high street, is a chic and relaxing café. The menu has something to suit all tastes, with mouth-watering breakfasts, daily specials, hot ciabattas, hearty salads and light bites as well as freshly-baked cakes and sweet treats. The Courtyard burger and salt beef ciabatta are the heroes of the menu and a must for the hungry; or perhaps try the poached salmon salad with edamame beans and minted yoghurt dressing. There are plenty of vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options – the gluten-free chocolate and walnut brownies are divine!
The Courtyard is beautifully decorated with a wide variety of plants both inside and out with plenty of seating in the garden for sunny days; well behaved dogs are always welcome too. Just outside the London Orbital motorway, this is a perfect place to pause and soak up village life or take a moment for yourself before heading into the city. Free parking is available just behind The Courtyard, with Ascot and Windsor Great Park nearby if you need to fill your lungs with fresh air and stretch your legs before your onward journey.
