“Great Value”
Reviewed August 18, 2014 via mobile

Four of us called in to the Windmill after viewing reviews on Trip Advisor. We opted for the set menu at 9 pound 50p. We all had main course and dessert. The Moroccan beef was not spicy enough and not very Moroccan at all. The haddock was absolutely delicious. The spinach, mushroom dish was ok and the ham, egg and chips excellent. All the desserts were superb. Overall excellent value. Service was good too. Definitely worth another visit.

“Sunday Lunch - Oh wow fantastic ”
Reviewed August 17, 2014 via mobile

Had the most amazing Sunday lunch here - food was wonderfully cooked, I was so stuffed after my main but I could see the puds/sweets coming out and had to have one. I had the cheesecake which was to die for. The staff looked like they enjoyed working there and were so lovely. Looking forward to going back

“Perfect Evening”
Reviewed August 8, 2014

We found this restaurant on Tripadvisor, From the minute we walked in we were made to feel special.We had a drink in the small but cosy bar where a waitress brought the menu over to us, there was no rush to make our selection.
Food was excellent, in fact a taste sensation, service was superb, waitresses were attentive but not over bearing.
It was our first visit but it most certainly won't be our last!
