We called in for a late lunch and were met by very friendly staff. I had the slow braised beef brisket pie. It was crammed full of meat and was really tender. My wife had the ploughman's lunch. We both enjoyed the food and will certainly return in the future.

I been to the Windmill quite a few times, I've had sit down meals, and nibbles at the bar. Both are excellent Great after a nice walk along the canal, or the Middlewood way. And in summer the maze in the beer garden make it great for families.

The Windmill is a little off the beaten track so you tend to stumble across it if you aren't local. It is welcoming and no matter what time you visit, lunch or dinner, the food is amazing. It is fresh, top quality produce and the choice is enough for anyone. We have dined here many times and won't be stopping... More

I can highly recommend parking up at Pott Shrigley and walking along the Middlewood way towards Macclesfield. After 3 miles you'll come to the Windmill Inn which serves fantastic food, a decent pint, it's dog friendly and has a roaring open fire, as I said the perfect little pit stop

We popped into the windmill for lunch after spotting the sign on the main Macclesfield road and we are so glad we did. Only had a sandwich here but the menu and events looked really good. We were greeted warmly by the patrons and although it was quiet on our visit I imagine you get a lovely atmosphere when the... More

I booked a table last minute and despite them being busy they were so helpful and easy going. We got there and received such a warm and friendly welcome. The place was spotlessly clean and the decor just seemed to fit with the style of restaurant. Throughout our meal the staff were friendly and pleasant and nothing was too much... More

Popped in for lunch after a walk on the canal and although it was quiet we had an excellent lunch. The place is very clean and tidy , even though dogs are welcome. Great service and quality of food and a reasonable price. Will return!

I'd certainly recommend this pub, it has an excellent quality of food and decent beer too. There is a garden with vast space for adults and families with children. Inside it seems to be dog friendly in one half of the pub and the other half is a restaurant set up to cater for couples, families and parties. The services... More
