The title says everything. I had the fist burger and the waitress recommended a cask ale to go with it. Service was great and the food was exceptional. £25 for a pie, chips and beer is a tad on the expensive side but the quality outweighs this negative.

We stopped in after shopping up and down Regent and Oxford streets and had a late lunch and found this to be a very welcoming setting. The interior is dark wood, beautiful bar area with a selection of rooms or areas to dine in. They even have a terrace bar upstairs. There are cozy nooks throughout the restaurant. The restaurant...

A group of us were meeting for a long Sunday lunch, several people coming at different times and the staff were not phased by this or gave me any grief. I had the roast beef and Yorkshire pud - the presentation was very average but the food was excellent with the exception of the worst Yorkshire Pud I've ever had.... More

My OH was in heaven, he loves meat pies, although the beer wasn't very good he said. The atmosphere was really buzzing, such an energetic place, but at no time were we rushed. The pie was good, I was surprised there were no vegetables but then again I was surprised it came with chips. The staff were very friendly and... More

Our trips to the Windmill are becoming a regular thing. This latest one was the best yet. The pies were delicious and the beer excellent. It was very nice to be advised as to what beer was best with which pie. Staff are lovely. And the prices are very reasonable.

The best pie crust, full fat suet pastry with full flavour fillings. Not for the health conscious but this is traditional pie making at its best. After for nding this two months back, I have visited four times and working my way through the menu. Large portions and made the mistake of having a starter once. Starter was so good... More

Excellent choice of beers and spirits, attentive and competent bar staff and a lovely atmosphere. Amongst the trendy bars and top end restaurants in Mayfair this is remains an oasis where you still enjoy a drink after work, or pre dinner on this occasion, without fuss and some good old fashioned hospitality; a great venue.

Pies are our passion. Our 3 x National winning steak pie is always available. We have traditional favourites such as fish pie, shepherd's pie, chicken pie and vegetarian pies alongside 'lip smackingly' great seasonal pies that can be washed down with up to 8 cask ales. Our 'Secret Garden' is ideally situated on our hidden roof terrace offering our guests an idyllic spot to soak up the sun and enjoy a fruit infused cocktail. Along with our dedicated pie rooms and cosy bar, The Windmill pub is the perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of the West End.

Staying in Mayfair

Neighbourhood Profile
Set beside some of London's best parks and home to world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic streets will reveal that Michelin stars and chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even if you're on a tight budget, this exceptionally well connected swath of Central London is worth exploring, if only for the chance to take a peak at the goings on of upper crust English society.
