Great pub for evening meal

This pub is slightly out of the way but well worth the visit. Ample parking and good size restaurant but will need to book if you arrive later on an evening. They have good selection of local ales on tap and change the selection regularly. The food is reasonably priced and tastes excellent, also... read more

We have eaten here several times and always been very happy with our meals. The menu is diverse enough to please a fair sized family group and the range of decent beers is wide enough to cause arguments about who is driving home!

I've been to the pub a couple of times for food, which is always delicious. Dogs are welcome and there are areas you can sit with your dog and eat. I'd recommend the blue cheese fondue. Their menus for special occasions are always good - I went there for Father's Day and wasn't disappointed.

We checked this pub out midweek with a view to booking Sunday lunch on Fathers Day.We loved their selection of real ales and although pretty well booked up for the Sunday they said they could fit us in ( a party of 6 ) at 12 o'clock. Due to a minor family drama my daughter and family didn't arrive till... More

Popped in on a bank holiday, and had a lovely meal. We eat out quite a lot and this place never fails. I had the roast chicken and my other half had the rump steak. All cooked to perfection and very friendly service. Will go back again

A lot of history in this pub , today its kind of modern but still has charm and good food , not far from the canal , which is a very nice walk if you are staying in Bollington . A very nice country pub good for families if you fancy a bot of fresh air

A group of eight of us ate at the Windmill a few days ago after arranging to catch up. My wife and I travelled up from the Cotswolds especially for the meal before we need to head back down South. The food for all our party was fantastic (& certainly hot ... but we sat inside unlike a reviewer below!).... More

I have eaten here on a couple of occasions and always found the food to be fine. This place has really gone down hill. The tangine was cold and looked like it had been taken out of the freezer. Pork burger was not hot and came with a few fries. Poor value for money. No chef skills here . Better... More

After being given a full refund because you stated 'It is the worse burger I have ever eaten' I fail to understand why you feel the need to post this in the public domain. You decided to eat outside, on not one of the warmest evenings, then complain that your food was cold!! You also state 'That this place is... More
