We have been to this special country pub a few times and it has never disappointed us. Great welcome and lovely selection of drinks. The menu is modern and varied and we thoroughly enjoyed our food. We will definately come back.

The bar staff were very friendly and efficient. My starter was delicious, I had red lentil pate. Sadly my main of salmon fillet was dry, the asparagus wrapped in parma... More

Came across the Windmill mid Sunday afternoon. We were cycling and stopped for Sunday lunch ( clearly not serious cyclists ). The staff were really welcoming and we were quickly seated with drinks and menus in our hand. The waiter told us we were really lucky to get a seat so if you're going, best to book. Three chicken Sunday... More

Came upon this pub when out walking and loved it. It has a good atmosphere and the food is delicious, well presented and reasonably priced. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. We only went in for coffee but stayed for lunch as well!

First went to the Windmill some years ago and enjoyed the meal. It's gotten a bit 'posher' since then, but was disappointed this time (last month, a Saturday). I ordered olives and dips - the olives were drowned in olive oil (talking about half a pint), the pesto was over-garlicky and bitter and the balsamic dip was similarly drowned in... More

We visited The Windmill Inn for a second Sunday in succession due to the great experience we had first time round. Always a risk going back so quickly after a great meal but we simply couldn't wait... Yet again the experience was excellent, the pub was packed full of families, walkers and had a real buzz on a fresh Sunday... More

We hadn't been to this pub for ages, but on a country drive found ourselves nearby so went for mid week late lunch, just needing a small meal. The choices were either (very good) sandwiches or a main course, but we opted for soup and a sandwich -The soup was delicious and my sandwich, a naughty but nice battered fish... More

Nearly £20 for a steak that was as tough as old boots, I ordered it with chips that came 5 minutes after my steak. Sorry may have caught you on a bad night but not impressed with the staff either.
