Rex Rattus left this review about Windmill Inn

This pub hasn't changed a lot since my previous visit. It no longer appears to be a Young's pub, and I saw no clue as to whether it was in the clutches of a pubco. One feature I somehow failed to note last time is the pair of bow windows with attractive glazing featuring, most appropriately, windmills. One less usually seen internal pub feature was the stone-clad wall on the right. As you would expect, there were England flags prominently displayed, with smaller flags of the other countries represented at Euro 2020.

There are three handpumps - one was unclipped, another had a clip reversed, and the third was dispensing Black Sheep Bitter at £3.80 a pint. There was an A4 sheet on the bar counter advertising toasties at £2.50 a pop - the cheese and ham version was just what I fancied, and came with some crisps. At these prices - £3.70 change from a tenner for a pint and sarny - one could forget that you're in London for a moment. Cash payment seemed to be preferred to a card.

This is clearly still a locals' pub, and with the decent beer, cheap snacks, and friendly landlady it is worth a return visit at some stage.

This is a small, low-ceilinged pub looking out to Mitcham Common, over the road. The internal layout is fairly typical – the bar counter is on the left with a bit of a drinking area in front of it, opening up to the right and to the rear. There’s a dartboard in the bar area on the left, over the fireplace, and a large TV screen on the back wall on the right. It’s carpeted throughout, with furnishings of banquette seating and normal tables and chairs. There’s an outside covered area to the right of the pub, presumably for use by smokers. This is another Young’s house, with the Winter Warmer coming in at £2.90 a pint. I didn’t see any food on offer.
This is a comfortable and friendly little pub. The only negative element to my visit was a small group of blokes in the front bar, who only seemed to know a single adjective, beginning with “F”. Nevertheless, I would like to be able to pay a return visit.

The Windmill is a nice looking stand alone pub that is on the edge of Mitcham commom.
Once inside the pub had one room that i noticed and this room was quite nice with an olde world feel to it with a beamed ceiling and comfortable bench seating and carpets throughout.
There were three real ales on the bar i had a drink of Youngs bitter and this was a very nice drink the other beers were Shepherd Neame Spitfire and GK IPA.
I was quite happy having a drink in this pub.
