Went to the Windmill for a meal to help celebrate my wife's birthday. Really good quality food and service. Particularly liked the chocolate tart with a chilli twist!

A nice atmosphere, friendly helpful staff and excellent food. Delicious gin and tonics - best ever made with local gin Burleighs. Beef and watercress pie was melt in the mouth and the chicken with tarragon and rissotto delicious. Fabulous Prosecco and Elderflower dessert too.

We went on a recommendation from a friend - it was very good food, possibly a little too much of it. The ambience was good, nice lighting and atmosphere, a little loud in the restaurant area, but we were near a couple of large groups.
