There are a one or two pubs in the West End that aren't the usual tourist traps, theme pubs or restaurants in disguise you get in these parts - they're just good, honest pubs that would be a delight for any discerning pubgoer to call his or her local. The Windmill, just off Regent Street is one of the best of them. It's a fine, traditional looking pub, just enough off the beaten track, to make it easy to get to, but not too easy to find and, as it's a Young's pub, you can be pretty damn certain that it has a fine range of beers on tap. Nowadays, Young's also offer a pretty reasonable wine list, for those days when ale just doesn't suit the mood, so of course that's an option here, but this pub's crowning glory are the award-winning pies. Accompanied by excellent chips (and yes, chips can vary widely in quality) and mushy peas, they're simply amongst the best you can get anywhere - well worth a special journey. The front bar may be a little small, but there's a larger room at the back and a restaurant upstairs and, when you add the prompt and friendly service and the generally relaxed and civilised atmosphere, you've got a top pub experience.

What a great pub - and what a find. Here on a Wednesday night and on the Deuchars for most of it! As a threesome of old friends we met here (booked via FAP Invite - very good) and whilst we usually move on we simply didn't want to. Staff great, beer great, atmosphere great and packed too for most of the night.
Had the pies, had the beer and will definitely be back. Well done to all at the pub.

Arrived at 7.30pm on a Thursday pm and was suitable busy. A sign of a good pub and it proved to be exactly that.

Very good atmosphere and is a great boozer with lots of rooms. Service was quick and friendly with plenty of banter.
We didn't eat by the pies looked great.

Plenty of standard Youngs beers you'd expect. including a 'winter warmer', which was a little heavy. The rest were in great condition.

The loos upstairs are a little cramped though

A good pub and we'd recommend it
