I recently visited this restaurant. Food and service was ok but I would be reluctant to rate it any higher. The view over the marina is pleasant. It could become quite noisy when entertainment is provided.

Ribs are to die for, that is all. Didn't like any of the other 3 meals that my friends got and I thought that it was pretty overpriced. Looks quite nice in the summer, nicer eatieries in close proximity to the Windrose try them out first .

We went to The Windrose for my hubby's birthday and were very disappointed with the meals we were served. My hubby ordered the sirloin steak which was greatly overpriced at £20 plus. It was supposed to have mushrooms served but we were told they had no mushrooms left. They did not however, reduce the price in view of this. The... More

Pleasant meal, service good but very busy. As there was entertainment on in the restaurant area, it was quite noisy.

Smoked salmon risotto bland, huge portion but totally tasteless and rice not quite cooked.Asparagus and potato soup poor, chilli squid slightly better. Limited dessert options. Not asked how we enjoyed our meal. Few... More

The view is lovely over the harbour and we requested a table overlooking this, understanderbly, these were reserved for diners and we quite happily chose another table for drinks, however, when the waiter saw us looking at the menus,...

We attended a wedding reception at the Windrose. The staff could not have been any nicer. They were all very pleasant and attentive. The views from the upstairs room were beautiful overlooking the Marina. The food was average, but service throughout meal was good.
