William the Conqueror chose the site of Windsor shortly after 1066, and built a castle high above the river Thames, on the edge of a Saxon hunting ground. It was a day's march from London and was intended to guard the western approaches of the capital.

A small town quickly grew around the walls, and there were several inns in the High Street to accommodate visitors. One of them was called the Garter Inn, named after the Most Noble Order of the Garter, which was founded by King Edward III in 1348. The other was named The White Harte, named in honour of the Royal Emblem worn by King Richard II (1377-99).

Both taverns were frequented by actors appearing in plays performed at Court, and The Garter Inn was the setting for a scene in Shakespeare's 'Merry Wives of Windsor', in which the rollicking figure-of-fun Sir John Falstaff appears with his followers Bardolph, Pistol, Nym, and his page Robin. It was also here that the Merry Wives, Mistress Page, Mistress Ford and Mistress Quickly hatched the plot to trap Sir John at the Herne Oak in Windsor Great Park.

Because both buildings were constructed mainly of lathe and wattle they were extremely susceptible to fires, and in 1681 both buildings were completely destroyed and then rebuilt. In the late 19th century they were joined together to form the Harte & Garter Hotel, a building in the 'Jacobethan' style, much loved by the Victorians and reflecting the Shakespearean connections.
The Tower Bar & Brasserie provides an informal yet elegant dining experience, offering a truly quintessential British menu in the most stunning location. Presenting simple and seasonal British classics, accompanied by an extensive wine list, The Tower is ideal for a business breakfast, delicious lunch, sumptuous dinner, or sipping on soothing cocktails whilst enjoying live music every Friday and Saturday evening.

The Stables Spa delivers a world of calm, allowing you time to lose yourself in the luxurious surroundings.

A second paragraph will be necessary to force this to happen as the first paragraph is not long enough on its own.
