Opening Hours

(subject to change - depending on current guidelines)

Our opening since the lifting of restrictions has been very encouraging and the support we have received since has been heart warming, the love from our guests old and new has been amazing and we couldn’t be more thankful!

The hospitality industry, like many other industries, has been badly effected in many areas especially with staffing. It is a crisis that we haven’t seen during the last 16 years since we have all worked in the industry. We need to safeguard our staff’s mental and physical health which is our utmost responsibility at present.

As a result of this we find ourselves currently very understaffed and the welfare of our team is very important to us.

It is with this in mind that we have had to make the frustrating decision to make certain changes of our offering.

Starting from June 4th we will close every Monday & Tuesday and between Wednesday - Saturday only offer our bar & light bite menu for lunch time together with a reduced À la carte Carte menu in the evenings. The classics will remain and our Sunday offering will stay the same.

Our restaurant manager Liam will be getting in touch with those guests who have booked for lunch and wished to sample our À la carte menu to rearrange their bookings to an evening time that suits you.

Your patience on this matter is much appreciated and we are working tirelessly to try and be able to resume business as usual at the earliest convenience.

Many thanks,
Steven, Ami, Liam and the whole Bailiwick team

A Fresh Start

The Bailiwick Free House has opened under the leadership of Steven Ellis previously of The Oxford Blue in Old Windsor with his wife Ami as head pastry chef. Nestled on the gates of The Windsor Great Park, The Bailiwick will be a gastronomic destination for locals and visitors to enjoy the very best produce that this naturally plentiful area has to offer. Steven’s training under the tutelage of Clare Smyth MBE at Restaurant Gordon Ramsay has enabled him to offer a sophisticated twist on familiar dishes.

Taking advantage of the abundance of amazing local produce, and with Steven’s particular love of game, he has created a harmonious and captivating menu with the help of a network of local suppliers. In particular, Steven’s strong relationship with the Gamekeeper of The Windsor Great Park, means that The Bailiwick will benefit exclusively from exceptional ingredients throughout the seasons.


The Bailiwick is a classic country pub nestled on the gates of Windsor Great Park, with a beautiful terrace overlooking the ancient deciduous woodland. The pub is particularly popular with walkers and cyclists, especially as there is immediate access to the park via a gate next to the pub. Dogs are welcome!


Our little pub has been positioned on the gates of The Windsor Great Park since 1877, due to its location there isn’t a designated parking area for our guests. However, there are plenty of parking bays scattered all around the park where you will be able to find somewhere to leave your vehicle. Some are a little further away to walk than others but, that just gives you more of an excuse to admire the amazing scenery that surrounds the Bailiwick.
