A friend and I went to the Windmill for a weekday lunch. The guy greeting customers and serving drinks was really nice, polite and friendly. Food and drinks were ok - we just wanted a relatively simple pub lunch and it was fine for that - I can't comment on evening meal food. The general atmosphere was good too -... More

My wife and I came for a meal as this was one of my favourite restaurants. Wife ordered prawn cocktail started which was completely bland and had no flavour, we sent it back and they kindly offered an alternative. I ordered rib eye steak medium rare and it came out well done. Staff were very apologetic and had a new... More

The place is clean and well equipped for families, but we're not impressed with the food. We chose to leave when the chicken part of our order arrived on the plate still wrapped in cling film, so clearly hadn't been freshly prepared to order - and the cheese sauce had already solidified into one gelatinous lump. It was pretty nasty.... More

I called into the Windmill for a late lunch mid week and although they were quiet due to the off peak time the atmosphere was very pleasant and inviting. The staff were chatty and the soft furnishings and decor was of high quality. Definitely a pub that attracts those looking for a bit extra.

Really lovely pub with restaurant. The play are is the best I have seen. Suitable for the very young to older kids. My 13 year old was still using the monkey bars happily. The food is great too, big fat juicy burgers and the Yorkshire pudding with sausages is amazing. I will definitely be coming back and bringing more friends... More

Have visited this lovely pub a few times for a drink to relax after a busy day. On the majority of times we have visited we have found the bar noisy with the same babies crying and screaming. I appreciate under twos are entitled to visit but around 7.00pm you don't expect babies ruining an evening. The parents don't seem... More
