Old pub but with basic keg beers. Seen better days
I was a regular here for 10 years during which time some of Dartford’s roughest would happily mix shoulder to shoulder with local businessmen under the watchful eye of Bert, the no nonsense, long standing landlord. There were 3 darts teams (2 male, 1 female), quiz teams, card schools, Sunday meat raffles, even shove ha’penny. Many of the regulars, myself included, did sessions behind the bar and it was a real community pub and often packed with local characters. In the years since Bert left, there have been a succession of dubious landlords and all the regulars have either passed on or moved on leaving just the bare shell of this once hospitable tavern. Nowadays, I rarely see more than half a dozen people in there when I walk by and everything they do to attract people is usually done better elsewhere in town. I occasionally visit more out of nostalgia than loyalty and to be fair it had improved a little the last time I was there (at one stage it had plastic flowers that resembled something out of a funeral parlour). Basic keg bitters (admittedly they never did real ales even in the good old days) and not much in the way of food. Housed in a wonderful old building, there have been a couple of refurbishments in recent years but the basic layout remains the same. I doubt that the Windmill will ever be what it was it is quite apt that the framed history of the pub on the wall inside ends with Bert.
