What a great place to stay. Soon as we arrived were shown to a lovely clean and welcoming room. The staff were very professional and nothing was to much trouble. We had dinner in the snug and I must say excellent food a credit to the chef. We would recommend the windmill to anyone. Well done

Gone downhill... This was our first reaction of the place also. This used to be one of our top eating places, not now! Two roast dinners on, beef & gammon.

Dee. I have not had the chance to speak to you personally I hope that I can and you will call me. I have spoken to my chef regards the two choices of roast - this is what she said "Yes the beef was fattier than usual, I didn't see any gristle. Yes there was only two roasts on but... More

After a muddy exhausting trek with the dog through Badby Woods we just stopped off for a drink. The pub has several tables in the bar area where dogs are welcome but we sat outside (Dec 27th !) along with a few others. The beers available included draught Bass and Woodforde's Wherry. The Wheery was in excellent condition. We had... More

As this is a local restaurant we have eaten here on many occasions. Its atmosphere is welcoming and unpretentious. If you just fancy a drink then its a nice place to meet friends and if you want a meal then it has an excellent menu at reasonable prices. On this visit we were given a table in the main dining...

Arriving late Friday night for a weekend trip I was made welcome and looked after throughout, and by request was able to keep my room late into Sunday after noon. Room, for single occupancy had a double bed and large shower (no bath). It was clean, if skirting boards were a little dusty.

First visit and we were amazed at the quality of the food and the whole dining experience. I would recommend the steaks and parmesen crusted chicken. The staff are friendly and service is good. you will probablyneed to book in advance as it is so popular
