Our Next Cheese & Wine
Our next Cheese and Wine night will be Tuesday 25th January from 7pm.
Cheese and wine nights occur once a month. Tables can be pre-booked via the Bar Staff using the email address email@example.com Cheese and wine is available throughout the pub, including both The Coach House and The Courtyard. Heaters are available for the colder evenings. Kick-off is always at 7pm.
Our host is The CheeseMunger of Windsor himself - Mike Unger - who regularly provides around six different cheeses of different types (soft, hard, goat's and blue) which vary each time to keep it interesting. Crackers and chutney are available from him too.

Mike was back in a packed pub. We had guests from Home Instead and the Book Club was on too. He had a fine selection of cheeses based upon the six nations raugby which is coming up. It was also Burns night - many were surprised that he was an acoomplished cheesemaker.
Cheese inluded Lyburn (ENG), Morbier (GRA), Cashel Blue (IRE), Taleggio (ITA), Isle of Mull (SCO) and Gorwydd Caerphilly (WAL). Connor had matched these with offers from The Bar. A great selection - a great night!

- Goats: Rosary garlic & herb and also Irish St. Tola
- Soft: Baron brie and Irish rind-washed Durrus

Who would have thought it would almost be a full year before our follow-up cheese & wine. It was hotly anticipated by the community especially after our successful online extravaganza. Mike Unger - The Windsor CheeseMunger - provided some excellent post-lockdown / post-Brexit cheeses. Micky - our general manager - gave some really special offers on wines to help the digestion. As always, the place was busy. We are really looking forward to the next one in a month.

A very popular online event to help get us through Lockdown 3. Seems people like beer and cheese with a little entertainment thrown in too. AND it was Rene's 99th birthday too! See our Photo Diary for that evening.

It was a with a little trepidation that we organised the first post-lockdown Cheese and Wine evening. Mike - The Cheesemunger - came back with a strong selection of excellent cheeses. We were so happy by the turnout by the local community!. All the tables in The Pub and The Coach House were booked, and The School Room was in use. A resounding success such we are making this a monthly event for the rest of the year.

On Wednesday evening the Cheesemunger visited The Swan. He brought along an excellent and varied selection of British cheeses. We were slightly unsure how many people would come, and were pleasantly surprised to say the bar was full and the cheese was going down an absolute storm. Mike's selection was spot on and many of the cheeses sold out by the end of the evening. A resounding success and one to do again!
Lest we had known this was out last event prior to the covid-19 lockdown. How our world would change ...
The Windsor CheeseMungers is a retail cheese outlet selling a variety of locally produced British cheeses. It is run and owned by local entrepreneur Mike Unger who is extremely popular with his cheese and wine evenings. Not only did you get an excellent selection, but also an explanation of how the cheese was produced, where it was from, etc.
Mike is also a regular at our mini-market events that are held at the end of each month. The Courtyard is taken over with stalls, a prominent and very busy one is that of The CheeseMunger. If you want to ensure the best selection, go early!
Mike also participated in our online beer and cheese tasting evening during the third lockdown. He chose the cheeses, Will Calvert chose the beers. It was themed for the rugby six nations as that was on at the time. We wont mention the result of that day. This proved a very popular substitute to the cheese & wine nights and we are sure to have another - but this time face-to-face.
