Went to the Windmill for Lunch with family who were visiting. The welcome was bright courteous and friendly. The Pub has a lovely atmosphere and a nice ambience. The views across the Bristol Channel are wonderful. The food is very good, we would class it as typical good wholesome pub food. Portions tend to be on the large side, so... More

We recently took friends for lunch, although it was busy, the bar service was poor, you have to pay before you eat, & overall we thought the quality of the food was poor for the cost. It's not as good as it used to be, very disappointing

Meal was enjoyable, but I expected more than the traditional pub grub which we were served. However, it was reasonably good value and the service was good as we were a party of 14.

Perfect view, better than average food, served with a smile. Not fine dining but a lot better than other pubs in the village, amazing views, my youth revisited (virtually grew up in the "Hole". Just go, the view is worth it.

This time last year l was not at all happy with this pub...this year as we are only in Potishead once a year...there has been a big improvement all round..the only downside was the price..but this is maybe because we come down from the north of England.things tend to be a little cheaper up there..so again we can recommend ...very...

This was my first visit to The Windmill. Given the wonderful views, I am sure it will not be my last. However I can only provide an average rating as there are issues that I would hope will be addressed by the management in order to make this a very good eating/ drinking venue. My concerns are: 1.

Hi Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your visit. We used to take food orders separately from the bar and customers suggested we take them all together, mostly this works well but sometimes a spike in trade will mean we do have a short wait. We do try to make sure we serve people in... More

We visited the windmill for Sunday lunch at approx 12.30. There were plenty of tables free, which wasn't a great sign. Ordered one large roast beef at £14 and on small pork a £8.25. The food was ok, but never worth £14 for the large roast. There was no difference between the 2 sizes. I would still come here for... More

Hi, I am sorry to hear you felt the large roast was not good value.I will discuss the importance of consistent portion sizes with the chefs. We actually had 137 people booked in on Sunday lunch so it did look slightly empty until they all arrived! Please email us if you wish to discuss the matter further Windmill@fullers.co.uk. I do...
