Welcome to The Windmill Inn

We are thrilled at the prospect of coming out of lockdown and invite you to join us for outdoor dining in our newly refurbished garden area.

From 15th April to 17th May we will be offering our garden menu for food and drinks and we are taking reservations for this outdoor space only in line with government COVID guidance.
We have introduced a new table reservation booking system for your convenience which you will find on our website and Facebook pages.

We look forward to welcoming back patrons of old and new visitors alike.

  • The Windmill Inn is a nice pub and guesthouse, perfect for people attending events at St Audries Park venue, just across the street.
    We stayed a few days and experienced :
    -sleeping there : large rooms, very clean and some accessible in a wheelchair ??
    -eating : as you would expect, food is exactly what you would find in a pub but there are a few vegetarian options. Very good, large portions and service is ok.
    -drinking : few ciders available, not a great choice of beer but still a very cosy and warm place to spend a few hours.

    From my perspective, prices are decent for staying, eating and drinking.

    Thank you to the staff!

    Food OK but table service was hit and miss depending who served you we had 3 tables booked and all had different experiences our waitress was rude from the start waited 20mins I asked to take our order and was rudley put in my place and told they were not ready to take food orders strange because other family members on another table had already placed their orders.when we finally got to place our order I asked if cheesy garlic bread & onion rings were available which got me an abrupt reply if their not on the menu then you can't order it another strange one as my sister in law ordered the same items and received them my wife questioned this at the bar and the same rude waitress who served our table said to my wife I all ready told you their not available my sister in law was told by their waitress not to let anyone else see they have had them. Be aware the online menu that is online does not match the menu you get when you are at the restaurant they seem to run a daily menu which changes so be prepared for our table it was not a good experience also my sister in laws table got their order wrong as menu said 1x 6oz gammon stake £11 or 2 x 6oz gammon stake £14 they thought this read 2 x 6oz gammon stakes for one meal instead they were brought another 1x 6oz gammon stake meal meaning they had an extra meal not ordered which they were told had to be paid for check carefully what you order to avoid confusion to how the menu is worded

    A charming independent non-chain country pub. Stayed here for a wedding which was at the venue across the road. My room was clean, cosy and really comfortable. It was on par with more expensive hotels. For me, what really made my stay was the hospitality. From the moment I arrived to when I left, the staff were nothing short of fantastic.

    For dinner I ordered the New York Pastrami Burger and when it arrived it was, unfortunately, undercooked for my liking. I mentioned this to the staff and they immediately brought me out a new one which was cooked perfectly. If that wasn’t enough the manager did not charge me for this. I was not expecting that and would never have expected that as I was expecting to pay. After all the chef did nothing wrong. Check my other reviews; I’ve never fished for a free meal. If I could give this review an extra star I would.

    Staff that made my stay amazing were: Libby, Orla and Kyle. Special thanks to the chefs whose names I didn’t get; the New York Pastrami burger was amazing!!
