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
