After reading the reviews of this pub we thought we'd try it out for ourselves.
On arrival the staff were really friendly. They made us very welcome, including our black labrador.
The service was second to none.
We ordered the beef madras. It did not disappoint one bit.
It was a great night, and we'll be back again soon

Came here yesterday after a long walk with the dogs , and I must say the food was delicious.
We both had steak and it was very good quality and the portions were more than enough.
The staff were very friendly and helpful and we will definitely visit again.

We pre-booked a double room at The Windmill Inn for the first 2 nights of our recent 12 day holiday. On first impressions, this was a plain and homely country inn, situated a few miles outside Whitby.

Our bedroom was on the small side, with little storage space and no wardrobe - only hooks to hang your clothes. On the other hand, the bathroom was spacious and contained a large roll-top bath. We had a very comfortable bed, offering a good night's sleep with little traffic noise. The bathroom mirror (room 3) was placed too high on the wall for those of shorter stature, but the owners are aware of this and intend to rectify !

All of the staff were friendly, there was a well stocked bar, and plenty of seating in the bar and restaurant. We enjoyed lovely tasty breakfasts, with hot food cooked to order. The evening menu was adventurous, much better than the standard 'pub grub', the chef (James) being brother to Ben, the co-owner/barman. His menu included tasty seafood dishes. On our first night we both enjoyed crab salad starters, followed by Halloumi & roasted veg wellington, and Greek style pork kebabs. On our second night we each enjoyed a full lobster ! The pub was busy with locals, visitors and diners.

The place is fairly basic but provides good value accommodation at 75 pounds b&b per night. Food prices are very reasonable, as is the wine list. Ben. James and their mother made us very welcome. This is an ideal base for visiting Whitby, the Yorkshire coast ands moors.

We enjoyed a very friendly, comfortable visit, and the place grows on you the longer you stay ! We will be happy to return.

Visited on a Monday night so it was nice and quiet. The interior does need some updating but it has a lovely local pub feel and the staff are very friendly.
The food was outstanding and I can see why it’s rated highly as the quality was amazing. The windmill burger I had was so tasty - one of the best I’ve ever eaten!
One negative was I had a white wine and it’s not kept in the fridge. I wouldn’t have warm wine again and would order something else. I’m a bit surprised as they had a nice selection of wine so not sure why it isn’t kept in the fridge!
