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.

    Nice place but unfortunately turned up after kitchen closed, young girl took us inside and showed us to the table but unfortunately the kitchen had closed. A rather rude old lady told us it was closed and that's it, good customer service skills would teach you to apologise, maybe say you can have a drink, an ice cream outside etc but nothing. Customer service was lacking.

    We went with 2 other couples and cannot compliment the Windmill enough. The manager/maitre was lovely and very accommodating. The menu wasn’t big but the food was very good, and the breakfasts outstanding. The rooms were extremely clean and spacious and attractively done.

    Very disappointing experience, we returned here after 6 years as my partner and I had dined here on one of our first dates. The waitress running the outside seating offered us a choice of tables, upon selecting one in a secluded spot we were told in no uncertain terms that we needed to sit on an unstable, heavily leaning table near the child's play area because, and I quote 'I already do 30,000 steps a day'.

    This rude and frankly shocking display of customer service was then pushed further when a food runner came to our table and presented us with someone else's order, upon informing him of this, a snarky retort was received.

    We were very prepared to sit and enjoy a few drinks to celebrate our anniversary, however the service being as it was, we ate and left sharpish with a bitter taste in our mouths.

    2 stars because the food was very pleasant but we shall not be coming again, this put a real dampener on what should have been a lovely afternoon out.

  • Stumbled across this lovely pub/restaurant completely by accident. We hadn't booked, but were given a nice quiet table near the bar.

    The staff were incredibly friendly and attentive, the food was first rate and good value for money. Would definitely come back.

    Many thanks to all.

    Considering we could only eat outside the waiting staff were very attentive & the food was excellent.
