My family (wife, son, daughter-in-law and three young grandchildren) and I had a very enjoyable lunch at the Windmill.The choice of food was not massive but more than adequate and the quality was excellent and very good value. 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. After having the lovely pigeon for starter, I changed my mind about the main I was having and the staff kindly changed my order and it was no... More

We booked in the afternoon to visit on a Saturday night and had the last table which technically was in the bar. It was a very comfortable table, staff including the waitresses and bar lady were all very friendly and efficient. The food we had was all very good. Enjoyed the mixed starter for two and I had the salmon... More

Met a friend again at her cousin's boy's christening and arranged to go to lunch with her Aunty and uncle and cousin. Since the Windmill is convenient to all of us, we decided to go. Are we glad we did!! The service was excellent and attentive without being obtrusive and the food on the lunchtime menu was outstanding value for... More

We had a fantastic meal at the windmill, food was great, staff were lovely and the restaurant very nicely done. We met family so the booking was for 10 people, this was not a problem, all the food came out together, all hot and well presented. The kids menu was a little bland, but I guess you can not go...

Hi John and thank you for taking the time to post a review. If I can just reassure the reader in relation to the childrens options as there seems to have been some level of misunderstanding. We have never served chicken nuggets or indeed anything from the freezer as part of our childrens options. We have in the past made... More

I used to drink in this pub many years ago when the only food served was a Pukka pie out of a microwave ! Things have certainly changed. The staff were all quite young but made up for their inexperience with their enthusiasm. The menu was varied and it was difficult to make a choice. All 3 courses were well... More

It had been six months since our last visit to the Windmill and I am sad to say that the standards have dropped and we can see why they are no longer number one on trip advisor. On our visit for Sunday lunch, the food was not of it's usual great quality. The meat was thickly cut and potatoes and... More

Hi and thanks for your review. It is difficult thing to get right but we have purposely started to slice our joints slightly thicker on a Sunday at the request of our customers and on this paricular day I was trying to make sure that later in service the waiting team were communicating the change in dessert options as people...

Me and my partner recently booked at the Windmill Inn for my birthday and we were not disappointed. Having eaten here many times, but not been for a while we thought we would go again. To start with we were unsure what to have on the menu but once we decided (even though we weren't really sure what to eat)... More
