As I have worked in the west end of London for over 40 years ( untill I retired in 2005 ) i cannot say this was my first visit , it's an old favorite haunt of mine , so it is now time to give the justified praise to the Pie Man they are the best and at a reasonable... More

Visited The Windmill for Sunday lunch with my family. The roast beef was excellent and very good value at £15.50 and the Cottage Pie and Vegetrarian Shepherd's pie were as good as my Wife and Daughter had tasted. We did ask the question as to how the chef managed to get so much flavour in to a vegetarian dish but... More

I am not a big fan of pies and never really thought much of it until my friend booked a table in the The Windmill. It was truly a treat. I ordered the special Lamb Pie with Rosemary with mash and gravy. It was simply the juiciest and best crust I've had. I will definitely recommend to try the pie... More

I have walked past this pub more times than I can remember over the years and never gone in. We decided to give it a go because its pies were recommended. Our favourite pub for pie having sadly closed down last August. It is actually not that easy to find a pub selling a decent pie in London, the vast... More

Took the dog with us on a Wednesday lunch time, we sat in the bar restaurant and were welcomed with the dog. The food as always was excellent, only thing I would say it would have been nice for the dog if they had some sausages but otherwise it was a lovely afternoon and the staff were brilliant. Would definitely... More

I'd heard great things about this place and finally got around to giving it a try. Well, I certainly wasn't disappointed. This is an amazing little pub/restaurant in the heart of Mayfair and its popularity can easily be measured by the scarcity of free tables as soon as you walk in. We had booked, so no problem there. Who ate... More

After seeing the write ups on-line, I was hoping that The Windmill would stand up to all the hype. We were not disappointed. Great atmosphere upon entering the pub and the pies were lovely. Service was quick and pleasant. You can see the standard of this eatery as it is jam packed over lunch time in this area but we... More

The google search for "best meat pies" didn't disappoint. This was one of my favorite meals in London. Along with great pie and mash the beer selection was solid and the staff fun. I'll definitely be going back the next time I'm in town.

Description
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
Mayfair
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.
