Very enjoyable meal, again

Early evening meal (6.00pm). A very warm and friendly welcome from staff. It was hard to choose from the menu what to eat, a really good selection. Meals were cooked to perfection.

The place is decorated tastefully and is very welcoming as soon as you walk in. Theres a good selection of... More

Fabulous food, lovely helpful staff. Monday night is pie night at The Windmill. Fabulous pies, made fresh on the premises, served with a selection of vegetables and good old mash. Highly recommend trying them!

This restaurant is one of my new favourite places. lovely atmosphere and the food is fantastic. The menu is generally quite limited, though it would be nice if there was another veggie choice. Although the risotto I had was very good. Service is a bit slow at times, the waitresses walked past us on a number of occasions whist we... More

sunday lunch at the windmill is unbeatable, lovely food well presented and attentive and friendly staff, the cost was £15.50 for 2 courses an absolute bargain, we have eaten in some top class establishments and this place is easily as good as the best,can't wait to go again.5/5, top class.

Have previously visited The Reservoir so was looking forward to trying their other pub/restaurant. Saturday lunch to celebrate my mothers birthday. The dining area has a light & airy feel to it and even though it was almost full there was still plenty of room to move between tables. The starters we had were the soup & mussels which were...
