Good pub food and value for money!

Ate as a party of seven. Had starters and mains. Chips were great and the steak pie was a lovely main. Haven't eaten here since it was redecorated. The place has a lovely 'comfy' feel. Good service from the staff, all smartly dressed and polite. Will definitely go back again.

Yesterday we had a great lunch with our friends from Scotland. We had 5 different meals and they were excellent and very tasty. The desserts were very well presented and the staff members very friendly. We’ll go back one day when we are in the vicinity.

Great menu myself being vegetarian I had choices. The meal was great value and you have the offer of ½ chips ½ rice with each meal. Much more than I could eat. The desserts looked to die for but I was too full to have one. Overall a very friendly, good value food.

Food is delicious and generous portion sizes. Prices are very reasonable too. I would say the only fault I could find was that the kitchen was slightly slow, however do not let this put you off, as we were in at the same time as 2 Christmas parties. My husband had the Deluxe Windmill burger and said it was possibly... More

Just returned from a meal at the windmill that I organised for a group of 14. Sam the manager let us order from the Christmas menu earlier than they were starting. The service and food was excellent. Thanks for making our visit so memorable. Well worth a visit.
