Just got back from the Windmill restaurant and, well, my words wouldn't do it justice! Truly Magnificent food, service and price, this is a must visit restaurant and in my opinion the best... More

The Windmill claims to serve "affordable, quality food, always freshly prepared from as local sources as possible". We visited on the first Monday of January so not surprisingly, the pub/restaurant was not busy. Even so, several menu items were unavailable. I had pre-warned the restaurant that my wife must adhere to a gluten free diet. However, there was some confusion... More

We've never had Christmas dinner at a restaurant before and I was a bit apprehensive about tables being crammed together, the quality of the food and being hurried through the meal by staff rushed off their feet. How wrong I was. We were welcomed to The Windmill Inn with pre-dinner drinks, perused the menu at our leisure and the two... More

Whether it's been a family Sunday lunch, an evening meal out with my girlfriend, or a group booking for a birthday, I have always been impressed by the quality of the food and service, and the reasonable price. They were even able to cater speciallly for... More

The restaurant setting was pleasant with stylish furnishings, plenty of space between tables and good lighting. The occasion was made special by... More

I hadn't been here before but was looking for somewhere for a birthday lunch for my dad. The food was amazing and the atmosphere was really nice. The service was really good.
