I hadn't been to the windmill for a while now and not since its facelift. The new wall at the front makes the pub look tidier and the entrance is also at the front as it used to be at the side . On entry the bar is in front of you and the vast restaurant is around the corner... More

The meal was very good, I had Whitebait to start followed by Steak and vegetable pie and chips, which came with three different vegetables. The portions are very big so much so I couldn't manage a dessert. The waiting staff were very good, lively and bubbly and very helpful. I would have given 5 stars if the Gents loo had... More

If you want homely well cooked fresh food then this is a great place to head to. I've popped in recently for an odd beer as the owners have been upgrading the place, and... More

It's not the cheapest pub meal but the quality does match the price. My friend, my godson and I have been here twice in the last couple of months for Saturday lunch. We go out every week and sometimes will travel that little bit further for something special, and that is why we make the 10-mile round trip to the... More

Brilliant food, delightful service by the two waitresses. Early evening friday and Saturday, 6.00 so nice and quiet. Veg cooked right; slightly crunchy and with taste, great pie crust and a good selection of beers. Attentative staff, very friendly and recomended a good cafe for Sunday breakfast round the corner. EXCELLENT!
