A first in here the other night, ostensibly for a meal with drinks in the upstairs dining room and something I rarely do in a pub. It's also hard to believe that this is a modern conversion - 1988 - which in part was an escort agency! The interior is moderately deceptive in that it does look as though it's always been a pub but there's much modern clinical tiling and acres of tedious blue/grey gastropaint. The ale range was obviously from Young's with a couple of guests such as Truman's Zephyr and Doom(?).
Absolutely packed, a meal it was in the upstairs dining room with food that revolves around the humble pie and a darn good steak and mushroom pie it was too with every indication that it was handmade. The mash wasn't quite so successful being a bit gluey but overall it was much appreciated along with a couple of pints of very well kept Special served by a couple of charming and friendly waitresses.
This isn't a bad place though it's very pricey but that's only to be expected if you venture out for a drink in the world's most expensive residential area and I wouldn't make an effort to return.

Side street Youngs pub. A partial remodelling of the two buildings knocked together to create the place in the 1980’s has created a dog leg interior with some points of passing interest amongst the corporate fittings, including some intricate ceiling mouldings and (presumed modern) tiled wall. Upstairs is a bijou roof terrace. Eight pumps with two off and a cider, leaving 3x Youngs, Sambrooks Wandle and Twickenham Grandstand. I went for the Youngs Special which failed to live up to its moniker, being warm and pump tired. I didn’t see much to make me want to reappear at a future date, really. 5.5

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Windmill

Excellent Young's pub in the heart of Mayfair, just far enough west of Regents Street to offer respite from the crowds. The main bar is to be found in a small but richly-decorated room at the front, with a fine moulded ceiling and gilded panels on the walls. A slightly larger seating area with plainer decor is located to one side, with the 'Pie Room' dining area upstairs and another room (formerly a bar, but now the 'Pie Room Too') down a few steps at the back. Also has a compact roof terrace. Bombardier, three from Young's - Ordinary, Special and London Gold - and four guests: Wandle, Wimbledon Windmill spring ale, Twickenham Naked Ladies and Five Points Pale available from the eight handpumps on this visit. Overall, distinctly upmarket but not snobbish, and well worth seeking out.
