Some of you may remember it as being a place that had a reputation for being "a bit rough!".
Well this wasn't just based on hearsay, it was well earned, so much so that it was actually officially documented in city council and police files!
In 1984, the pub was refused a late license because of the amount of incidents there was there. In one infamous rumble, a policeman was knocked unconscious. So the place could get a bit lively at times!
In their defence, the pub owners put in a complaint to local MP, Gordon Wilson, about the "continuing police harassment"!!
On the flip side of the coin to it's Wild West image, the pub was also equally known as a live music venue for local talent.
Remember Dundee group, Thynglechime? Well their drummer, Mick Rafferty, used to run the Windmill at one stage, and that lead to many a late night jam session with the likes of Brian Reid, Willie Hastie and many others.
It even became a bit of a draw for the alternative music scene in the early 80's, with bands such as The Junkies, Street Level, Megazones and so on, all playing there.
Talk about being "put through the mill" though, just to further "put the wind up ye", there is the HH prominently on display on the front of the premises... just as a wee reminder!!
This top notch picture was taken on 30th July 1985.
