2nd visit

This Windmill restaurant in Portishead, Bristol offers a very comprehensive menu with panoramic views of the Bristol Channel. Light bites are on the menu which is great when you don't want anything too heavy to digest.

You know when you go to a place that you really like, have a bad meal and put it down to a bad day. I am afraid that the windmill has has too many chances and too many bad days. See you later old friend. I shall wait to your menu, chef or management changes.

Thought we would give the Windmill another chance due to change of ownership. The Pub location and décor is excellent but the food is just not up to the scratch of other Portishead eating houses. Ordered the Chicken burger very overcooked and nothing has changed, every thing seams to be spicy or curry. My wife's Lasagne had very little meat... More

Not so long back I reviewed the windmill and sung its praises...not so now I'm afraid. Went there today with small children. No children's menu? We were just directed to the light bites. The only sausages for the kids were sausages made with cider and they smelled like it too! Come on guys, is that really appropriate for the children.... More

Hi I am sorry you didn't find our lighter bite menu suitable. We have used this part of our menu for children since we opened as The Windmill but will certainly take your comments on board when we plan our menu in the future Kind Regards Pix More

Firstly the views are terrific, we booked a table for a birthday and even confirmed two days before but an elderly couple were unceremoniously uprooted from their seats to make way for us, we then stood watching as the table's were cleaned. I ordered a steak which was burnt, a lasagne was extremely grease and a shepherds pie that was... More

Summer's day, beer on the terrace, what's not to like? Polite friendly staff, great views, high quality decor inside, I don't usually approve of pub renovations, particularly to pubs I knew as a youth, but this one is really the tops. Highly recommended.

Held a family meal to celebrate my Mum's 80th birthday. 25 is a big party but the staff were excellent at ensuring the food arrived at the same time. Food was excellent and of course the setting is perfect especially on a nice sunny day.
