Amazing meat pies. I tried the the pie of the day (game). I'm not sure what I was expecting but it surpassed that. It was so juicy and full of large chunks of meat.

For those who aren't from around there (like myself), you order at the bar, pay and pick a table. They will bring you the food when its ready.

This is a great area to explore with lots of locals hanging outside enjoying their drinksmore

Pies, Pie Room, and Pie Room Too!

Think I happened upon it looking for a pub nearby to eat at. From the outside, and being a lovely evening, both sides of the street were packed with the post-work crowd. So, we thought there would be no way for us to find a seat inside. . . we were wrong. It's pretty spacious with multiple pie-rooms (I think it's funny there are "pie rooms").

The Windmill is an unsuspecting pub in Mayfair. Full on the outside and the inside with office types so reservations are necessary.

My brother and I were trying to find some food to eat and stumbled upon this place when looking for pies. What a great place! We came in around 6 PM and was about to give up on the place since there weren't any seats available when we saw an opening. I'm glad we decided to take it, since the pies were really quite up to the hype.

I got a game pie and my brother got a steak and mushroom....more

4.5 stars, maybe 5. Best pies I ever had.

The kidney pie might have not enough kidney and too much mushrooms but the seasonal venison pie was extraordinary. Perfectly seasoned and tasty, just the exact same way I'd cook it.

The pie crust was so fresh and crispy, cooked to perfection.

The side of spinash was perfect: under-cooked, minced spinash with butter..

Lovely staff, nice brown ales....more
