We called in at the Windmill a few weeks ago on a Tuesday, and were not able to eat there due to it being full! We made a return visit again on a Tuesday because we had heard that the live music was very good. Our experience was very positive and we would certainly recommend it to everybody. Every Tuesday...

Rang to book a table for 8:45, they were only serving food til 8 but extended just for us, was only a booking for two. That was typical of the extremely friendly and helpful service we received when we were there and the food was excellent. Can't remember the last time I've been served by such a lovely lady and...

Four of us decided to try their taster menu which they run once a week, For each course we had four or five of the dishes that they serve, obviously in smaller portions, but dishes that seem to complement each other. Food was very good, service was friendly and good and the atmosphere great. Well worth the money and a... More

Had no plans for the bank holiday Monday and as predicted it was lashing it down. So we decided to treat ourselves to a spot of lunch after hearing a couple of good reviews from friends and work mates that live nearby. Easy to find down a country lane heading out from Newbold Verdon. Been decorated, very smart with profile... More

Visited here yesterday evening with my mothers friends. Having never been here before we were unsure what to expect but were very happy when we arrived to find a wonderful country style pub. The service was great, all of the waitresses had a smile on their face and were very attentive. The food was to die for, having the goats... More

Fab food, fab service, excellent place can't fault it. Food was just like home cooked, lovely thick wine gravy and tender juicy meat. Veg had a bite to them as they should.

Four of us called in to the Windmill after viewing reviews on Trip Advisor. We opted for the set menu at 9 pound 50p. We all had main course and dessert. The Moroccan beef was not spicy enough and not very Moroccan at all. The haddock was absolutely delicious. The spinach, mushroom dish was ok and the ham, egg and... More
