While visiting Clevedon and Portishead over the last few years we have always enjoyed excellent food at the Windmill. A few weeks ago we took our family and the food was of a very poor standard, so bad that we were unable to eat it. We were extremely disappointed and feel unable to return or recommend it to our friends.

You arrive expecting great things as the pub is in a fantastic location and very well laid out. However two things let them down. The service was haphazard. Some staff seemed to have little clue as to what they were doing, certainly they didn't welcome you a the bar. Secondly the food was distinctly average. The sandwiches come on boiled... More

We had lunch at The Windmill yesterday, we were a party of seven. Two of us ordered Shepherd's Pie, one was a light bite and the other a full size meal. The Shepherd's Pie was served in a shallow dish, perhaps 2 or 3cm deep. The dish was basically full of mashed potato which had been piped into the dish.... More

After reading some of the reviews for The windmill inn, I was very concerned when a friend booked a table for 11 of us, however my fears were unfounded and the meal was delicious. Everyone in our party enjoyed their meal. The portion size was good and even the "lighter meal" option was plenty for someone with a smaller appetite.... More

On August 2nd, my family and I went to The Windmill for lunch as we have done frequently for many years (since 1985 when it was The Hole in One). It was very disappointing: firstly, the menus were blobbed with food to such an extent that we had to hold them at the corners; secondly, I queried a gluten-free option... More
