My partner and I first discovered the Windmill this February and have been back about once a week ever since. It's a great modern country pub with a cosy atmosphere and a lovely garden. The food is amazing; the menu is extremely well tailored to cater for all tastes. It ranges from simple 'pub food' to the quirky combinations of... More

The added bonus of live entertainment and... More

Lunch with wife and granddaughter, service was extremely slow took an hour for 2 ploughmans and a sandwich. Sandwich came on brown with salad but had asked for White and no salad. Granddaughters sweet was extremely poor (very dry brownie) Outdoor area is excellent but food was very disappointing.

Went last Wednesday and what a great little pub hidden away! Food isn't cheap but was decent and the price of a pint was reasonable. No idiots/chav's rounded the evening off nicely!!!!

We are regular visitors to the Windmill during all weathers and various times of the week. The food, the wine, the surroundings and the staff never disappoint! For those seeking indoor or outdoor quality food in a welcoming and homely environment would suggest nowhere better! Terry & Kath

I have eaten in the restaurant last year and it was fine but this meal was served outside. The menu was limited but all 7 of us were disappointed. It was one of the worst meals we have ever had. Over cooked, undercooked, dry. Plus we waited ages. To be fair, a member of staff came to tell us that... More

We like the Windmill but our meal in the garden tonight was awful and very slow in coming. The fish was bland, chips semi cooked and mushy peas incinerated. The adults chicken meal was also poor. The kids chicken meal was very overdone and almost unpalatable even for hungry children. What a disappointment. I told the bar staff what we... More

Myself and my girlfriend recently visited this pub and were very impressed it's a beautiful looking country pub with a huge secluded beer garden ideal for families! The menu was varied with lots of choice if not a tad expensive it's definitely aimed at a certain type of clientele. We found the service excellent and th food as you would... More
