The Dining Experience at Chartwell Royal Marquis in Windsor

At Chartwell Royal Marquis, we understand that an enjoyable dining experience is founded on the quality, variety, and freshness of meals, as well as an inviting dining room filled with lively conversation of friendly residents and welcoming staff. We use fresh ingredients in your meal preparation to craft wholesome and nutritious daily menus. We are in tune with residents’ likes and dislikes, offering both familiar fare and new combinations that you may have always wanted to sample. We rotate our menus on a seasonal basis so there is always something different to tempt you. One night you could be enjoying carrot and ginger soup, followed by beef bourguignon with asparagus and mashed potatoes, finishing with Black Forest Cake—or for lunch, roasted red pepper soup or vegetable salad with a turkey burger serverd with cranberry mayo.

We offer both a daily feature menu and an à la carte menu, with an abundance of choices, including entrées, soups, salads, sandwiches, fruit, and desserts. We are also happy to accommodate your special dietary needs, as well as any guests you may wish to invite to dinner. Don’t forget about our freshly prepared snacks either—they are the perfect pick-me-up between meals.

Beyond our inviting dining room, we also have a private dining room, bistro, country kitchen, and a charming pub.
