Managed to get back to one of favourite eating places, and guess what? they had just introduced a new menu to chose from. Didn't realise how busy it got during the week now, but the food still fantastic and service excellent, and although it was busy, still very relaxed atmosphere, must'nt leave it so long between visits.

We are regulars at The Windmill, the food is always great and the team are always cheerful and happy to see us despite getting very very busy sometimes!! Sunday lunch is a must, especially after a long walk. Would always recommend steak night as well. Excellent.

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

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
