I remember well the old Bridge House - the drugs, the threatening looking characters, the under age drinking. Never has a 'makeover' changed a pub so much. Now, The Windmill, is tastefully furnished, serves a nice, well kept selection of ales, good reasonably priced food, and attracts the right sort of person. No big screens, no music, just convivial conversation. Needless to say, the place is packed most nights. Well done Greene King!

I have been past here a few times on my way to footie at nearby AFC Hornchurch without feeling any great desire to pop in. Arriving particularly early prior to a recent match I thought it was time to test the waters, especially given the recent reports of fairly major changes, not least of all the pub name. Whilst it certainly appears to have had a fairly extensive makeover, it cannot disguise the fact that the interior comes over as bland and soulless. The main bar is knocked through into one with a series of pillars down the spine and drab colour schemes. The furnishings are a mix of the now standard modern loungey areas with tub chairs and a smattering of dining tables. In one corner there is a small conservatory type section but on the whole it is all very safe and sanitized apart from the small paneled room behind the bar which does at least retain a bit of character. At the rear is a neat and tidy, newly fenced in patio garden although it is quite small in relation to the pub. There is more outside seating at the front of the pub although the river that runs by isnít exactly tranquil or picturesque.

Being a Greene King pub, donít expect anything earth shattering from the hand pumps; IPA and Abbott being the choices although at £2.35 and £2.60 respectively, they are at least reasonably priced as was the pub grub menu. Whilst the pub appears a friendly enough place, I cannot imagine using it for any more than a pre-match pint and I doubt too many people would be attracted here out of choice unless the local competition is worse.
