We had a very nice meal at the Windmill. The staff were really welcoming and the service was excellent even though the restaurant was full. The food was well presented cooked beautifully and tasty - large portions meant that we couldn't manage all 3 courses so if you visit this restaurant bear this in mind. With a few more choices...

I wanted somewhere to take the family for lunch to celebrate my son turning 8. My experience started well with the easy online booking and instant confirmation. It was a busy rainy bank holiday Monday and on our arrival we were swiftly seated to our awaiting table. Service was great and prompt considering how busy they were. The menu options... More

The Windmill came highly recommended to us by our neighbours, so last Thursday we decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed. We had the lunchtime special menu and the taste and presentation of the food were both excellent. The staff were all really friendly and polite and again service was excellent. We would not hesitate to go... More

I was in holiday with my brother. Following TripAdvisor this was one of the places with the best review. Nothing to say against! Food was very good from the starters to the desserts. Staff was very nice!

On the basis of reviews I thought this would be the venue for a party outing that I am planning so made a visit to check it out, Left very disappointed after a very average meal and indifferent service. Waiting staff not very attentive. The furniture is very haphazard and painted but badly scuffed & tables need to go to... More

My husband and friends have enjoyed very good meals here which are different from the more usual eateries. Our last visit a week ago we had the meat pie which was made with white park beef. This was served with a mix of vegetables. For desert we had the lemon tart which when it came was much more than a... More
