Vegetarian or vegan options
Parking available onsite
The Courtyard, just off the high street and thronging with plants inside and out, is chic and relaxing and serves dishes to suit all tastes: 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; try the poached salmon salad with edamame beans and minted yoghurt dressing for a healthier bite. There are plenty of vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options – the gluten-free chocolate and walnut brownies are divine.
There's plenty of seating in the garden for sunny days and well behaved dogs are always welcome too. It's just outside the London Orbital motorway, so 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, with Ascot and Windsor Great Park nearby if you need to fill your lungs and stretch your legs before your onward journey
