A return visit for a christmas lunch and just as well we booked as the restaurant was pretty full including a coach party of approx 50 people. Despite the numbers and how busy they were, we were still given a warm welcome and given a small bowl of olives to keep us going while they took all the orders. They did warn us there might be a slight delay while they served the large party but to be honest it was hardly noticeable and both the kitchen and waitresses were superb.

The fixed menu was excellent and I went for the melted camembert, followed by roast turkey Both were fabulous and probably the best roasted parsnips I've tasted for a long time. Honeycomb cheesecake for pud and how good was that. My wife had the lobster and scallop Thermidor and said it was one of the best dishes she has had.

Really impressed with the quality of the food, the flavours and how calm everything was. All added up to a fabulous lunchtime experience and one of the best pub restaurants I've been too.

Look forward to a return visit soon !!

We are 3 couples who meet for lunch as and when we can and once again we have chosen to have our lunch this December at The Windmill Inn and we thoroughly enjoyed the Christmas Menu. Not a scrap left on our plates! We chose from their set-lunch menu as there were plenty to choose from, including a vegetarian dish. The cottage-style decor within the restaurant is pleasing; we came away fully satisfied with their service, and especially the food! No doubt we'll be back there in the new year.

Visited the Windmill for a group Christmas meal. The food was delightful. Super meal with lots of vegetable side dishes. A bread and butter dessert to die for. The staff were very friendly and hard working to ensure that the evening went perfectly. Looking forward to visiting again in the near future.

Went for a family pre-Christmas reunion evening. Six of us each ate different meals. Service was attentive, (but not pushy), friendly and informative.
The food was genuinely extremely good and just different enough from other places to make the experience very special.
I can vouch for the Spiced Pulled-Pork Pancakes and the Roasted British beef Rump - both were beautifully cooked and well-presented.
I shall be back!
