Hi SE, Delighted to know you enjoyed your meal with us. Sorry about the long stairs as this is a listed building and we are not able to make any structural changes to it as it is protected by law.

Wife had shrimp scampi--more like shrimp poppers and I had fish and chips. Food was good but not exceptional. Liked the quaint feel of the place and the history was interesting--staff building for the castle and part of the Nell Gwynne story with Charles II.

Description
Drury House is one of Windsor’s oldest eateries, It was built in the reign of King Charles I, in 1645 to house the staff from Windsor Castle. Later on it became part of the abode of Nell Gwyn, Charles II’s favourite Mistress; to accommodate their secret liaisons, a tunnel was built between the Drury House and the Castle, enabling Nell Gwyn to have a secret rendezvous with the King at a moment’s notice. The tunnel is still in existence to this day, though for security reasons have been partially blocked off.

Drury House is a unique restaurant and tea room, steeped in history, right in the heart of Windsor, serving traditional English food such as FISH & CHIPS and PIES with local Ales and Beers. Visitors to Drury House will be fascinated to find a wealth of original 17th century features, including mouldings, fireplace and wood panelling offering a unique atmosphere.
