This is one of those occasions when I'd like to give 4 out of 6 stars. Better than average, but good rather than very good. It's a nice old pub, where the make-over a few years ago has now softened to make it feel comfortable...More

Visited for Sunday lunch having passed this pub previously on various walks in the area. The plus points were, lovely ambiance and very attentive staff on arrival (we were asked if we were being dealt with by five different people). The menu is varied and...More

On my visit to the Windmill the food was amazing especially the presentation of the beef featherblade, as well as the lovely service that i got from all of the staff. Would definitely come back.

We attended a friend's wedding here at the weekend and it was beautiful. The beef and yorkshire pudding was just delicious. Followed up by what was the best sticky toffee pudding I've ever had. Just gorgeous all round.

Have dined here a few times lately and feel its time to provide a review. The Windmill is a bit out of the way(depending where you live of course) but boasts of a fantastic beer garden. Last time we were here they had a singer...More

We decided to have lunch here, before embarking on a stroll along the canal. We were glad we did. We were received in a very friendly manner and had a drink whilst we looked through the menu. I selected tempura black pudding with chilli sauce,...More
