  • Like many other catering establishments staffing is causing issues. We gave up after 50mins waiting for an order to be taken having made a telephone reservation the day prior. Whilst in the past meals were good the inability to balance customers with kitchen capacity means walk ins should have been turned away or at least told they were subject to not being a priority. Will not visit again until reviews indicate better capacity or that making a reservation means service in a reasonable times. Here for 3 days and other restaurants we used were spot on, one Indian in Williton and Japanese in Western super Mare.

    We stayed at the Windmill as part of a wedding party at St Audries Park and we absolutely could not have asked for more. The staff on Friday 12 and Saturday 13 August were absolutely perfect - welcoming, friendly and concerned about every detail. We were a big (demanding) group and they exceeded our expectations and requests in every way possible. it really made the day before our wedding so much more relaxed and enjoyable. We had an evening meal with various plates and everything was cooked to perfection - everyone in the group commented so, as was breakfast the next day. The rooms are spacious, so comfortable and quiet, meaning we could get a great nights sleep. The team at the windmill made sure our less-able-bodied guests had the perfect room, and looked after one of our guests that wasn’t feeling so well. A friend that works in the hotel industry commented on how this is only a minor technicality (full length mirrors) off of being a 5 star, which they wholeheartedly deserve. It was perfect.

    Lovely place, great breakfast ??. Bar staff need to realise that starting to clean up and use bleach to wash floors is quite off putting for customers trying to enjoy a quiet drink some time before stop tap. Very unwelcoming. We left the bar at that point. I would still stay here again though.

Has to be the best carvery I've had in years and years if not best ever.. . Food is fesh and tasty and very filling and staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Have booked to go back before we finish our holiday as its so good. 10/10 5 stars and more ??
