The staff were welcoming and took our drinks order quickly. I had a pint of Bosley cloud from a local brewery which I throughly... More

Fourth visit to the Windmill and the food is getting even better! Last time we were here, we were knocked out by the food quality and the excellent service, I did'nt think you could better that but you surpassed our expectations this time, well done all of you and keep it up!.

We have been coming here for years but moved away from the area a few years ago. As we are back for a quick visit we wanted to go again. What can I say other than I'm so glad I did. From the moment we walked in we were made to feel so welcome and the food was simply divine.... More
