Dining
The Woods of Windsor
The Woods is charming, warm and sophisticated

 

Clint Hyndman and Dean Bowden, the duo behind Yellow Bird cafe, have delved once again into whetting Chapel Street’s whistle with the opening of The Woods of Windsor. “Ultimately it’s for ourselves, we live in the area and wanted a place to get a nice meal. It’s the complete opposite of Yellow Bird,” explains Hyndman.

 

The Woods is fitted out in a masculine, hunting-lodge style; all dark polished timber, strange taxidermied beasts and whisky bottles. Head chef Nick Stanton’s seasonal menu changes weekly. If you’re not here for dishes like spiced duck breast or zucchini flowers stuffed with beetroot and pine nuts, you’re probably here for the whisky. For first time patrons overwhelmed by the epic selection, Hyndman recommends a “refreshing start” with a Whisky Mac (whisky, ginger wine and bitters).

 

If it feels like it’s simply too early in the day to drink their dark elixir, never fear. The Woods is also serving up a New York style brunch, which means mornings need be no less sophisticatedly soused; this time courtesy mimosas.
