This has been a family spot for years, it is perfect for Sunday lunch. The food is absolutely delicious and so great in terms of value. Dessert is a must. It is family run, and this is obvious given the warmth and excellence of the service.

The main restaurant was fully booked so we had to eat in the bar area. Staff very friendly and helpful. Food of good standard. Beware the battered plaice is huge, the chicken goujons as a starter are a huge portion but well cooked, the chicken and leek soup tasty but tasted a bit glutinous - ? too much corn flour.

My family and I visited this lovely restaurant today for my Nan's birthday. We were all very impressed with the food, and my vegan dietary requirement was not seen as a problem at all, and I enjoyed a delicious vegetable and sweet chilli stir fry. The staff were friendly and overall a brilliant service.

We visited the Windmill on Sunday November 23rd with friends. The staff were friendly and we were served promptly. Our food was delicious with good portions of meat and vegetables. Would recommend this pub for good food at a reasonable price with excellent service.

I had been here a number of times with different groups. Always the food is delicious and I wonder how they can get such a range of food choices ready at the same time. The decor is tasteful and the tables immaculate. I would like to see the entrance from the car park a little more suited to senior people... More
