Our carvery offers 3 local roast meats, homemade Yorkshire Pudding and a selection of fresh seasonal vegetables and potatoes.
Served Sunday 12-6pm


The Quantock Room is now used as part of our casual dining experience.
However, it is suitable for private events and parties and we would be happy to discuss your requirements

  • 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.

    From the get go the staff were amazing, we were greeted as soon as we entered and offered a choice of tables to sit at. The kids were very eager to go out and play on the park and the staff member who greeted us was happy to reserve the table for us while we supervised the kids outside. They have a great selection of drinks available so definitely something to suit everyone. The food menu was good, I wouldn't say it's the most extensive selection but they had enough on offer to satisfy everyone. The quality of the food was spot on and should we ever be staying in the area again we will certainly be popping back.

  • We are staying at the haven site and noticed this pub on the way there, 5 mins drive from site, so on the doorstep. Rang up at the last minute to see if any tables were available and there were, greeted at the door by friendly staff, who showed us to our table straight away. Very nice selection of food to order. We ordered the steak and the lasagne, we didn't have to wait long to get our meals, the pub is set in a nice setting, believe there are rooms here too, but never stayed. Children's play area to side, large car park, not sure on disabled access as went up stairs to gain access to the pub, I would ring the pub first to see about access, or they might comment below after I post this review.
    We were very happy with our visit, lovely people, lovely food, will go again if back in the area. Please see pics.

    Had a lovely stay. The staff were so friendly and helpful. The room was attractively furnished with a good modern shower room and we loved having the private balcony. The choice of breakfast was impressive and we also had the Sunday afternoon carvery which came with an amazing choice of well cooked vegetables. We look forward to our next stay at the Windmill Inn.

    Very nice hotel. We stayed only one night. We really appreciated the excellent dinner and breakfast at a reasonable price. Staff very kind and friendly. I would definitely recommend it.
