Want a good pie? And by that we're not talking about a pot pie with a puff pastry lid, but one entirely encased in pastry. Well this is a good place to go. There's some excellent looking pies here, which are very tasty.
You buy your pie, then your sides separately so the bill can rack up a bit, although given the location this is not that surprising. There was a wide range of sides on my visit, all which looked and tasted good. However the chips seemed to let the place down - if they were chips made in the pub itself then they didn't seem like it, appearing to be rather bog standard frozen chips. You can avoid this by having a good dose of mash instead, but I did feel that the quality of the chips let down the overall experience.
The Windmill has an excellent range of beers, in good condition. As a Youngs pub it featured several Youngs ales, plus other beers from the Wells and Youngs range. And nicely there were also several other brews from smaller producers in the local area. And if you're in the upstairs pie room, the staff are happy to bring them up - something that doesn't always happen in upstairs rooms of pubs.
Well worth a visit.
