Blue Scrumpy left this review about The Old Windmill

Another fabulous old Coventry pub that oozes character. The entrance corridor passes a room either side at the front, before you find the bar itself on the left-hand side. There are further seating areas to the right-hand side and beyond the bar.

Real ales on were Timothy Taylor Landlord, St Austell Tribute, Morland Old Speckled Hen, Blue Monkey BG Sips, Frothblowers Cloudburst Porter & Bedlam Phoenix. Ciders are listed on a blackboard opposite the bar, which is quite difficult to read, given all of the crossing out. As far as I could tell, the full list was Weston's Old Rosie & Rosie's Pig, Thatcher's Traditional, Lilley's Somerset Scrumpy (it did not specify which one), Rhubarb Cider, Mango Cider, Whisky Cask Cider, Collider, Ginger Bread Cider, Bee Sting Perry & Gladiator, Healey's Flattler & Peach Cider, Snail's Bank Mango Cider & Banoffee Pie, Dudda's Tun Salted Caramel Cider & Cotswold Cider Company No Brainer.

There were a couple of ciders I hadn't previously had on the list. But I panicked and ordered a Flattler. Time was ticking on, with 3 more pubs to visit. So, sadly I didn't get to have a second (or a third)! Still one of the best pubs in Coventry.

Superb pub in a historically important street.

Oozing its age inside and out - with the inside a very pleasant experience of individually panelled nooks and crannys.

Several real ales on - at least 5 - most with hand written signs. Hogsback TEA caused confusion as barstaff thought I wanted a cup of tea!

The sort of pub that is a living museum with plenty to explore.

A pub full of oldness comprising many small rooms, classic sort of place. Sadly rammed on the night I was there and with some pretty rude customers.
