    Enjoyed a lovely Carvery at the Windmill Inn on Sunday. Delicious food and great service. Choice of veg was high quality and a good selection including cauliflower cheese, aubergine, carrots, parsnips and potato.

    Always make a visit when we're down here and would definitely go for the carvery again.

    Normally fantastic, but mothers day could have been more organised, long wait for drinks order, then longer for food order and then nearly 15 minutes in the queue for carvery. When we asked for deserts, told that we had to be off the table in 5 minutes so no! Shame

    Enjoyed a Sunday carvery for 4 people here. Lovely cooked meats and a nice selection of vegetables to go with them. Particularly enjoyed the cauliflower and broccoli ? cheese.

  • The Windmill Inn set in beautiful Quantocks surroundings. Very friendly, great atmosphere.
    We were there for Christmas Day Lunch.
    I was going to drop one star as I had asked the young lady who served us for extra gravy and it never arrived.... but I wont drop that one start because when I did mention it to her when she came to clear our plates and she had admitted she had forgot all about it and did apologised which I was OK with as I understand it was a very busy time and I fully appreciate all staff giving up their own Christmas Day to make ours a perfect one.
    Maybe a note to be made for the future to maybe just put out extra jugs of gravy on the tables anyway and then there won't be a problem.
    So let's end on a good note, friendly, welcoming, staff always had a smile and the food was excellent and couldn't ask for better!
    Thank you very much for giving up your Christmas Day. If you are open again this year Christmas day I will definitely book and will be back!

    A perfectly fine stop during our walk. I personally prefer a pub with a bit more of an atmosphere and cosy surroundings, whereas The Windmill had dining tables & chairs throughout which to me doesn't conduce to a comfortable setting, but perhaps works for them if they're more interested in food service.

    Great Inn. Room very spacious and great views towards the sea and Wales in the distance. Carvery on the Sunday was huge although we ordered a standard. Breakfast was great. Staff very friendly and helpful. Good base for going either way on the A39.

    A great place to have a small stay with good food and nice rooms with the best of facilities. A serene and beautiful setting in front of St. Audrey's makes it quite picturesque.
    We attended as a wedding stay and I can say for sure the rooms are better than St. Audrey's. We had an evening event of dinners and cocktails at the Windmill and we really enjoyed. The staff was quite helpful but for a few small issues which can be ignored.
