Fodor's Expert Review Gilbey's Eton
Just over the bridge from Windsor, this restaurant at the center of Eton's Antiques Row serves a changing menu of imaginative fare, from potted ham hock and rhubarb with sweet onion and mustard seed to crayfish and dill hot-smoked trout fish cakes. Well-priced wines, both French and from the restaurant's own English vineyard, are a specialty, as are the savories—meat, fish, and vegetarian pâtés. Scrumptious cakes are served with afternoon tea on weekends. The two-course set menu—served at lunch and dinners most days of the week—is a good deal. The conservatory, with its colorful scattering of cushions, is a pleasant place to sit, as is the courtyard garden.
