“Ripped off”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2014

My wife and i went here with the intention of having a meal.We ordered 1/2pint real ale and a pimms and lemonade.The barmaid charged me £6.80,i paid and sat down at a table.I told my wife the cost and she said that cant be right! As a member of staff walked past we asked if the price was correct for what we had.She said "i am sorry we have overcharged you."went to the bar printed off the receipt and handed me forty pence back and said " we charged you for one too many lemonades"

I looked at the receipt and it showed 1/2 a beer £1.80.1 pimms £3.40 and 4x lemonade £1.60.So basically they had the cheek to charge for 3 dashes of lemonade in a half pint glass.The pimms was served with 2 cubes of ice and a slice of lemon.
I dont mind paying for anything one little bit,but theres nothing like ripping off the tourist's,needless to say i finished my drink left the receipt on the bar along with the 40pence.
We went round the corner to the Black Swan by the riverside near the theatre.We ordered the same drinks.The pimms came served properly with strawberries,cucumber,lemon,lime,mint etc and it was £2.00 cheaper for the same drinks.I explained what had happened at the Windmill to the bar manager and he said he could not believe what had happened nor the price as both pubs where owned by the same company.We will be returning to stratford upon avon,but will definatly NOT be going in the Windmill again.I pay my way like the next man but will not be ripped off under any circumstances

“Good Service ith a Smile”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2014

We had excellent food at a reasonable cost. On the evening we visited there was one man and one lady on duty, they were serving at the bar and serving all the meals. Food was ordered at the bar then served at your table. I was amazed at how well the 2 staff were dealing with all the customers while keeping the bar and tables clean . Well done to both of them and thanks for the brilliant service.

“Great place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2014

What a great place this is, we had 3 days in Stratford last week and were trying to find a nice place to eat, we had missed this on the first day, but after a trip on the tour bus we spotted it and thought would be worth a try, so glad we did, the place was very nice the staff were very friendly which is the main reason we decided to stay and the food was great and served very quickly, we were very impressed. We will make this our first choice on our next visit to Stratford.

“Regular haunt.”

We have visited Stratford a good few times over the past two or three years and we always have a drink in the Windmill. The atmosphere is very relaxed and friendly.
