It's been almost 10 years since I was last in here. But having completed all Coventry pubs I wanted to do, I had the opportunity to visit a couple of bonus establishments. The Old Windmill is very much as I remember it. In fact, I sat at the exact table I sat at in summer 2009! As others have said, the pub has plenty of character, with multiple rooms. It was certainly busy enough on my visit. Ales were Morland Old Speckled Hen, Theakston Old Peculier, Timothy Taylor Landlord, Purity Gold, Hogsback Yule Log& Goff's Black Knight. Ciders were Abrahall's AD & Cracklin' Rosie Perry, Orchard Pig Explorer, Weston's Old Rosie & Thatcher's Stan's Big Apple. I was getting a little tipsy by now. But I do recall having the perry!

Superb pub in a histrionically 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.

This pub has just been awarded the pub of the year for Coventry.
Still selling 8 fine real ales + ciders. Does some great pork pies .
The first pub to visit , you may not get to any others!

Lovely old pub with an interesting layout of different drinking areas. A good choice of ales sensibly priced but the only food on offer was either pork pie or game pie. Having chosen the latter I was then informed they had sold out, a bit strange as there was a distinct lack of trade and those customers present left a bit to be desired, nevertheless the pork pie was good. On the plus side the young lady behind the bar was very pleasant and my pint of Springhead Outlawed washed my pie down well. I can also report that the toilets (gents at least) were spotless.

Five ales on (didn't see any guests) - Hobgoblin, Doom Bar, TT Landlord, OS Hen and Theakston's Old Peculiar which we had a pint of each - in good condition.
