Lunchtime, the manager came and spoke to us about the pubs in Windsor and Eton, and spoke highly about the ones that we were planning to visit.

The first Saturday we'd had off for weeks. Near the Castle, but not today too touristy. The pub filled up with functionaries from the Castle and rugby players. Perhaps when they become past the game, they become functionaries in pinstripe trousers.
