Sawdays pub award.

The latest edition of Sawdays much loved Special Places Pubs and Inns of England & Wales comprises over 900 of Britains very best pubs with just twelve selected to receive an award in one of four categories; authenticity, commitment to the community, local, seasonal & organic produce or pubs with rooms.

The three winners of the authentic pub award have demonstrated a passion for being an authentic, simple and unadulterated pub. Other winners in this category include the Blacksmiths Arms at Broughton Mills and The Stag at Balls Cross.

Alastair, founder of Sawdays, says: The Two Brewers at Windsor is an unchanging town-centre gem in the shadow of Windsor Castle with quaint bare-boarded rooms and a charming old-fashioned pub atmosphere daily papers, open fires, cosy corners, delicious real ales. Perfect after exploring Windsor Park. With over 900 pubs in the guide, winning is a terrific achievement for the hard-working landlords, landladies, chefs and staff!

The Two Brewers at Windsors entry in the guide:

In Royal Windsor, next to the Cambridge Gate and the magnificent Long Walk, is a charming pub whose small quaint rooms meander around a panelled bar. One room with big shared tables has deep red walls and matching ceilings; the others have intimate seating areas. There are magazines to dip into and walls crammed with posters, press-cuttings, pictures and mirrors; on a blackboard above the fire, anecdotes commemorating each day are chalked up in preference to menu specials. Its massively popular but reserve a table and you wont go hungry: the compact menu follows a steady pub line, with daily specials, roasts on Sundays, and tapas on Friday and Saturday nights. Choose between beer, champagne, fine wines and a sprinkling of pavement tables to tempt you after the rigours of the Big Tour. Dogs are welcome but no under-18s.

Sawdays new Special Places Pubs and Inns of England & Wales is out now priced at 15.99. To buy a copy and for more information go to
