Superb Sunday Lunch

Thought this review had been posted already, it seems not! My wife & I went to The Windmill for Easter Sunday lunch & it was quite excellent. I had the roast beef, it was melt in the mouth & loads of it! Both the roast potatoes & veg were very good. My wife had the Vegetable Lasagne which she... read more

We were charged again for the drinks we bought at the bar in the final bill (£30) which we noticed after going home. We rang them... More

This is the first time I have written a review on here but feel compelled to do so - from the moment we entered we were made to feel welcome in the cosy seating area next to the bar. We were shown the menus and at no time were we pressured into taking to our seats or placing our order..... More

We visit each time we are in the area. Always a great meal. Buzzy atmosphere. Staff are very helpful. This despite being a packed Easter Saturday. The starter, main and dessert were all good.

We visited the Windmill Inn on the 3/4/2015, the food was of a very good standard, the service was both friendly and attentive. Good menu, reasonably priced and beautifully presented, we will definitely be visiting again.

We visited for an evening meal last night, thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The menu was small but offered a variety of very different dishes which were a little out of the ordinary and refreshing - all sounded very appetising. Service was a little slow at times, this wasn't however a problem for us as we were in no rush, staff were... More
