My family and I visited on a Sunday afternoon and I have to say this pub does the best roast dinner ever. Everything on my plate was cooked to perfection. The kids food was great too, plus they ate for free! The service was excellent and the staff were very attentive, they really couldn't do enough for us. The food... More

Went to the windmill for a Sunday dinner with family as we had been told how good it was, it did not disappoint. I had a turkey dinner and other family members ordered from the lunch menu and couldn't fault it, the portions where great, left feeling very full. Staff were very helpful and happy, couldn't do enough for you.... More

My wife and I had been out driving in Cheshire and wanted somewhere to eat. We've eaten here a couple of times before and enjoyed good food. Just off the M6 at Junction 19, this is a great place to stop off to break a journey. There is a varied menu, the surroundings are good and the staff are helpful.... More

Visited as half way to a night out at Manchester. Ample parking at the rear and made welcome on entering. Decent menu and very pleased with the sausage and mash x2 and the delicious crispy lamb chops. Really nice home made chips also! The staff were very friendly which always helps.

8 of us dined here Friday at 7pm - without wasting my time on all the faults. The food was mediocre, the hosting from the staff was appalling, never been to dine at a place where it felt like we were inconveniencing them by being there! Not a single smile from any of the staff towards us. The place was... More

This is a great stop off at Junction 19 on M6. Such a pleasant alternative to a service station. Extensive menu with something for everyone. Very relaxed ambience. We like the fact that you can just turn up and there is always a table available. A regular option for us when travelling south down M6.
