A farm shop selling royal produce and excellent tea rooms

Windsor Farm Shop

 

Windsor Farm Shop official website


Windsor Farm Shop is an off beat attraction at Windsor, off the trodden tourist track that few visitors visit or even know that it exists. Those that do seem to think it is worthwhile.

 

At face value this is a normal farm shop, the difference is that it is selling produce from the Royal Farms and this produce tends to be top quality, top of the range foods. The Shop was created by converting Victorian potting sheds and constructing two new buildings which became the Farm Shop and the Coffee Shop.


Butchery

Windsor Farm Shop hosts its own butchery with meat from animals reared on the Crown Estate and private Home Park, and fully traceable to the individual farm it came from. On offer is beef from traditional British breeds, lamb, pork, poultry and game in season from the Royal Estates.

 

Fruit and vegetables, delicatessen and locally baked breads

In addition to the butchery there is a larger shop selling produce such as speciality breads, homemade cakes, cheeses and a selection of hams and pies cooked on site and locally grown seasonal fruit and vegetables.


Seasonal fare and gifts

Seasonal fare such as hampers and confectionery are available to buy during Easter and Christmas. A range of non food items such as books, classic toys and decorative gifts are also available to buy. There are many gifts to purchase with a royal theme.

 

Coffee shop

The Coffee Shop is situated adjacent to Windsor Farm Shop offering freshly ground coffee, traditional teas, home-made sandwiches, paninis, hot soup, hot pies and pasties, cakes and pastries and a selection of chilled wine and soft drinks.

 

Coach parties and larger parties can be catered for, providing you call ahead.

 

Getting to Royal Farms Windsor Farm Shop

Windsor Farm Shop is on the opposite side of Home Park (the back garden of Windsor Castle) from Windsor Town.

 

It would be about two miles to walk, more than most people would be prepared to walk and not a particularly nice walk at that.

 

The farm shop is open seven days a week opening at 9am, 10am on Sundays.


For most independent travellers, just get a number 8 bus (every 30 minutes) from in front of Windsor Castle sign posted to Heathrow Terminal 5 and get off at the first stop in Old Windsor. Just follow the road to Datchet for 5 minutes for the farm shop.


The number 8 carries on its way through Old Windsor to Heathrow. At the other end of Old Windsor is Runnymede. If you get off by the Bells of Ouzely pub it is just a simple five-minute walk to the memorials, including the site where the Magna Carta was signed.

 

The Windsor hop-on, hop-off sightseeing bus also stops outside the Royal Farm Shop.
