Excellent birthday dinner

We've just had an excellent birthday meal at the Windmill Inn. It is set in the countryside, with views to one side and what appeared to be a kitchen garden on the other. The building has lovely rustic beams, but is light and airy, and at a pleasant temperature even on a hot day. There was a lot... read more

I went to The Windmill Inn with my parents while they were visiting Leicester. We had a really pleasant experience. The food was lovely and the countryside setting was great - worth the drive! The staff were really friendly but unfortunately the service was a little slow. Would definitely visit again as overall it was a really positive experience.

We had a wonderful Sunday lunch here at the weekend, the starter, chicken liver pate, was quite a big portion and so I just had enough room for the roast lamb, which was delicious and a very good price, service was excellent too!

I have eaten at the Windmill numerous times over the years - and it simply gets better and better. The new menu is another improvement, with the introduction of dishes straight from the grill. It is always my number one choice for my birthday meal with my family.

It has been many years since I have been to the Windmill but it did not disappoint. Lots to choose from, well presented and beautifully cooked. Definitely worth a visit. My only comment was that my partners asparagus starter was a little short in quantity for a healthy appetite!

Once again another top notch meal. Friendly, efficient staff. Fantastic food and great beer. Managing to keep up the high standards is always a battle, but they manage it every time. I would recommend to those who have visited only on a Sunday to give it a go during the week, you won't be disappointed. One tip...make sure you book!

The family and I decided to take my Grandad out for a father's day meal. As I live in London I was not sure about nice restaurants in the areas so I I decided to book this restaurant based on the reviews on tripadvior. The restaurant was busy being Father's day but the service was not compromises and it was... More
