This was the first time we had visited the pub on a friend"s recommendation. I must say we were very impressed with the quality of food and the price of the set lunch. The mushroom and spinach croquettes with 3 cheese sauce for starters were delicious. We both had the chicken, shallot and Gorgonzola pie of the day which was... More

We ate lunch here today as a couple for my birthday and had the best meal that I have eaten in years!! The soup was fantastic, the lamb - wow and the desserts we had to share because neither of us could decide which we wanted more - they were sooooo good! We live locally to Market Bosworth and so...

We go to the Windmill Inn quite a lot throughout the year and it is our favourite place to eat by far. Because of this we decided to book for Xmas lunch and it pains me to say it was a bit of a disappointment. The roast potatos were not as good as usual, the desert by usual standards was... More

Great food - too much of it! Only down side to our evening was there was a chap on singing/playing the guitar which was way too loud. We couldn't hear each other!

This restaurant is isolated amidst a lot of allotments! The car park is small the premises are smaller. The decor is verging on the rough. Not cute, uncomfortable. The menu needs careful negotiation, don't order any fish! It is mainly a poor salad and just warm fish. The meat dishes are also dressed up with just a hint of whatever... More

I chose this restaurant randomly from online reviews for a place to celebrate an occasion for 6 of us. Had never been here so it was a bit of a risk. As soon as we arrived we were so happy! The décor is so cute, with a vintage feel. So tasteful, cosy and with modern touches. Staff were friendly and... More

Booked in advance, which is essential as was very busy and we had the dog with us. Given table just in the bar area adjacent to the restaurant which was fine. Super food, the indian crab / prawn bruschetta was inspired and the chinese chicken noodle,soup a great hit. Steaks good and chicken pie excellent. Considering how busy they were... More
