Delighted to find out my father had yet again arranged for us to have a family lunch here when we arrived for a visit. Another fantastic offering of superbly cooked food. Highlight for me was the lamb steak. I honestly cannot remember ever eating lamb that was as tender and as well cooked as this was. Other highlights were the... More

We turned up without a reservation, and we were pleased that they squeezed us in. The Sunday lunch menu was good, with plenty of choice for everyone. The food was great and the service was very attentive and friendly. Great place to eat.

Attended the wonderful Windships restaurant last night for some food and drinks with friends local to the area. We've travelled up from South Wales and it was well worth the journey. The warm greeting we had from the staff at the Windships was first class. Special mention to Nicky and Caroline who were so friendly and made us feel extremely... More

Another great meal . Staff are wonderful, kind and attentive. This was one of the best Sunday dinner we have ever had and the apple crumble was amazing.

Winships is our favourite venue for Sunday lunch, both for the high quality of the food and the excellent and friendly staff (that's you Caroline, Sheila and Chloe). The Sunday roasts never disappoint, perfectly cooked and beautifully presented. Have only one suggestion for chef Norman and that is a little more variety in the starters, desserts and vegetables - maybe... More

Visited Winships again last week as party of three. Good to see several other tables in use as business affected by bridge and road closures. As ever, Caroline warmly welcoming and efficient. All decided on the Lamb's Liver and Champ Mash which was superb. Followed by Panna Cotta with sorbet and Vanilla Cheesecake, both of which were delicious. Food could... More

We rocked up at Winships last night and fortunate to get a table for two in this busy and friendly establishment. The service is excellent and the menu varied with an outstanding choice of starters and main course - we were too full full to even look at the dessert menu! Starters of Crab Cakes and Garlic King Prawns were... More

Two visits to Winships in the last month emphasised the excellent standard of food preparation and presentation. The first was for their once a month two course special evening menu and the second for a private lunchtime buffet. On both occasions the food was of the highest quality and the service complemented this. I have no hesitation in recommending this... More
