Fantastic as always!

Have eaten here many times,service is always good and food is exceptional! Other restaurants we've visited have made us wait 40 mins between courses but at the windmill we'd had all 3 courses in just over an hour, brilliant! Definitely our favourite place to eat in Leicester.

What a gem of a place! I had the lunchtime platter and was wonderfully surprised by the range of items on one board including hot soup and so reasonably priced too! Best meal in a long time.

Great food, reasonably priced and a nice selection of beer and wine. Friendly management, cute waitresses and a nice garden. Great place for a spot of lunch in the summer. Well done to Al, Steve and the rest of the team. Will be back for sure!

we have been back to The Windmill many times since my last review and can only say it is getting better and better. Met one of the bosses last night and he was as cheerful as the rest of the staff. The food continues to amaze us as not only being excellent, is reasonably priced too. Will continue returning.
