Went for dinner on a Saturday evening. the restaurant wasn't overly busy and the service was good and speedy. the menu was typically pub grub burgers steak and a pie. the chips were not homemade which was a shame and the puddings were ok. Would go again but probably not in a hurry

Travelling alone I wanted to avoid the usual pub grub and was fortunate to fall over this gem of a restaurant. The staff are friendly and the food really tasty. It's a bit out of the way but well worth the trip!

Been here a few times as I often work and stay over in Peterborough. Great pub in lovely village location. Food quality is excellent and nice spacious restaurant area that's great for big parties of people. Always had good service and would definitely recommend giving this place a try..

I am fortunate enough to call this "my local" but felt I had to give the new menu a shout out. You can't go wrong with a duck or steak wrap and the service is always good of course. Nick did not tell me to say that! Great play area for kids too. Win win

Visited the Windmill with my family and stopped for dinner. The Restaurant had a great atmosphere and was very welcoming! Amazing service from Emma & Jo who saw to our every need. I had the rib eye steak which was cooked to perfection. Will defiantly be visiting the Windmill again.

I love this place! Amazing game pie (the best I have ever eaten). Large portions and great service. It's a shame about the terrible background music (if you want me to visit regularly you must change it) and it would really benefit from an open fire in the winter.

We had our Wedding Reception at The Windmill 25 years ago and decided we would like to hold our Silver Wedding Anniversary there too. With a party of 22, it's not always possible to please everyone but everyone really enjoyed their food. We were served by Lucy who attended to our every need and helped to make our celebration very... More

I've visited here a couple of times. First time was with a couple of friend. Menu was pretty standard for a pub but for a 7pm weekday it was dead. The next time was with 15 people from work. We should have pre ordered as the meal took forever to arrive...it was painful

Visited on Valentine's day with a party of 11. We had to pre order our food which wasn't much of a problem for us. When we arrived the staff were very nice and showed us to the bar while waiting for the rest of the group. The bartender was very nice and accommodating. When all of us arrived we were... More
