The Windmill might be described as not so much imitating the changes in the surrounding neighbourhood as tracking them, intelligently and relatively sensitively. Above all, it retains a sufficient degree of its own character and is now a smart bar - rather than a theme bar, City post-office-overspill, or intimidatingly trendy venue, unlike many other ex-pubs around this way. It has proper chairs and tables, for one thing, and the place's overall appearance is smart and contemporary rather than preposterous. True, ale fans will be disappointed and you may need a bank load to afford the exorbitant prices, but this isn't the only place near here guilty of that. The people it attracts are a wide range, but might be categorised as those who don't seek out the much more pretentious venues nearby. So, all in all, we don't mind the Windmill. Probably not a pub you'd go out of your way to visit, but it does the job.
