The Windsor Castle brings a tropical touch to Melbourne

The Windsor Castle brings a tropical touch to Melbourne

How does your beer garden stand out from the crowd?

The lush tropical greenery that hugs The Windsor Castle’s beer garden is what makes it stand out. Nestled beneath a giant tree canopy and among plenty of palms, our outdoor oasis sits in a quiet street of Windsor, just off the bustle of Chapel Street.

If I’m hungry, what food can I enjoy out the back?

We’ve got something for everyone! You can grab a few plates to share from our sharing menu (with three for $30), explore a good range of main options, take on one of our big steaks or enjoy something from our always favourable ‘Pub Classics’ menu. The ‘1kg of southern-style buffalo wings and jug of beer’ special on Tuesdays and Sundays is always a hit in the garden.

Tell us about the décor. What’s the inspiration behind your beer garden?

Taking inspiration from tropical tiki villages, the garden is a charming and kooky hideout with sun bursting through its green canopy. The bamboo outdoor bar and thatched roofing protect the garden, making it popular all year round.

Can we expect any summer surprises on the drinks menu?

There are always new additions to the drinks menu. We’ve just extended our happy hours for the summer, which are now 4:30pm-8pm from Monday to Friday with selected tap beers and wines. Hang around Friday night for our cocktail specials featuring the Negroni, espresso martini and an array of Spritz’s.

Describe your beer garden in five words.
