We're Open!

The Shambles Café, Bar and Bottle Shop is up and running. It has been a crazy first few months, but we managed to get our doors open and the feedback from the people of Windsor has been absolutely incredible.

A huge thank you to everyone who has taken the time to pop in and say hello; you have made us feel so welcome into the Windsor community. We feel truly honoured and humbled by your positivity and we cannot wait to share more drinks with you at The Shambles, Windsor.

Our Story

Hello, we are Hamish & Pip.
Having spent over two decades in the hospitality and drinks industry between us, and sharing a keen passion for all things tasty on the food and drinks front, we dared to dream about having our own place one day.
Our journey started in lockdown when we had a lot of time on our hands and a shed that was full of alcohol. We set about creating a delicious range of bottled cocktails and delivered them across Windsor and nationwide.
From this, we often discussed how we envisaged our own bar: a place where hospitality comes first; a local neighbourhood bar, a community hub serving both visitors and Windsor residents. But we knew the building and timing had to be right.
After a few years of searching, we had to opportunity to take on the 'Crooked House' and to say we jumped in feet first was an understatement.
Our doors opened on the Coronation Weekend - 24 hours after we got the keys - fuelled by coffee and negronis, we made it through what is still one of our busiest weekends yet. Since then, we have grown, learnt a lot, tweaked many things and listened to our guests feedback - we continue to learn and grow and are so excited for the chapters still to come at The Shambles Bar.
