Pub number 7 and the last pub of 4 in Windsor to tick. The Vansittart Arms is a main stay in the GBG.

Large Fullers pub in a residential area that very much feels like it is at the heart of the community.

The pumps were offering all things Fullers with a guest being Joseph Holt Two Hoots @ 4.2%.

Busy inside and out , the pub garden was packed and their was a bar b q on the go.

Worth the walk from the football ground and then the long stroll to the station, quite possibly the best pub of the day.

Another Fullers pub in the backstreets of Windsor with friendly staff. A good range of Fullers beers was on last night - London Pride, ESB, Discovery & Spring Sprinter. It's a good 10-15 minute walk from Windsor & Eton Central station.

Been in here twice recently and found it rather inviting with a good pint of beer (London Pride). However went there tonight and could not wait to leave. beer was not up to much (London Pride) and the clientel (as well as the Landlord) was roudy, I know it was soon after the end of the FA Cup Final but the needs of ALL patrons should be accomodated. I will however give it another try next time I am in Windsor. If you are the Landlord/Landady I hope you are reading this and act accordingly.

This place is not a pub, it's a playground/creche. Went in here Monday lunchtime and was immediately assailed by the sound of a crying tot in a high chair. We distanced ourselves from that as far as we could but this was unfortunately by the fruit machine which was promptly infested with 4 very noisy young children while the Landlord stood by grinning amiably and the fathers propped up the bar.

The crying tot persisted but because of the 4 unsupervised children we tried to tuck ourselves into another corner to obtain a bit of sanity. It was not to be as the tot cried endlessly. We tried to plot an escape to the Bexley but they weren't doing food (no wonder pubs are going down the pan) so we stayed put in the hope that the apparently well to do parents would actually behave responsibly. Some of them did and removed their fractious progenies. Not the ones with the crying child though. They were determined to make everyone's lunchtime a misery by remaining and they achieved that. The child cried for over an hour and thoroughly spoilt the visit. Lazy parents fault of course.

I said before that the Landlord is laid back. Actually he's comotose. One of his barmaids turned the music up to drown the noise and she laughed about it. What it really needed was for someone to actually take action but the Landlord was too busy grinning gormlessly and doing nothing.

The food and the beer was good but like the nearby Mitre and Bexley this place is on the way out. Pubs are not appropriate places for children and selfish parents should be excluded.

Never again.

Seemed an ok Fullers pub. Discovery, Pride, ESB and Bengal Lancer. Plenty of non Fullers pump clips above the bar so you might be lucky and find a guest. Maybe more of an eating pub.
