Fine old building but sadly tied to Greene King.It's popular with the young and drinkers of Stratford,and the interior was fully booked on my Saturday 5pm visit.I was shown throught the building with it's low timered ceilings and several room,nooks and crannies.The main bar is to the left side but the internal decor is too modern and detracts from the age of the building.Dining from the corporate GK menu was proving popular but so was drinking and the interior was noisy and boisterous.
The courtyard was large with more numbered tables and views of a very old timbered building to the side of the pub.This courtyard soon filled up with a large hen party much in evidence,many overweight and underdressed ,shreiking for all they were worth.
The single real ale available was GK IPA and despite it being in the best condition possible it's still only worth a NBSS of 2.5 given it's such a dull brew.
Next time I will leave this pub to the people who deserve it.

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

Attractive old Greene King inn, which draws one's attention from some distance. The interior, although considerably refurbished in a relatively light style, doesn't disappoint either as the three main rooms (forming an overall 'T' shape) retain a fair amount of character. This is particularly the case in the rear room housing the bar which has a distinctly low ceiling. Four handpumps on the counter, dispensing IPA and Abbot plus Doom Bar and Purity Pure UBU (£3.60) as guests.

A traditional looking pub on the periphery of the town centre, this probably isn’t quite so much of a tourist trap as many in the vicinity and there seemed to be a good crowd of locals in on a recent Saturday evening visit.

Internally it consists of three different rooms. The main bar is at the back of the pub and this was a bit of a mixture of traditional and contemporary in style. There was certainly some very old timberwork in evidence such as beams on the (very low) ceiling and supporting pillars, but other than that it’s clearly had some refurbishment with a modern wood strip floor, for example. A large stone fire-place was at the rear, although it was unfortunate that this had been largely obscured by a large TV screen. I assume though that as this was on a wheeled stand, it was perhaps a temporary fixture for the Six Nations. A smaller snug was at the front of the pub and this looked to be a cosy spot with carpet on the floor and a small fire blazing away, although this rather looked as though it may have been gas rather than anything more traditional. There is also another room off to the right, but this looked to be more geared up for dining.

Beers on tap were predominantly from Greene King with their St Edmunds, IPA and Abbot Ale and these were joined by Purity Saddle Black. Ciders meanwhile were Strongbow and Stowford Press.
