The first person we met was warm & cheerful, and we were seated in seconds. The menu was standard Sunday fayre with a twist. The food was served quickly, ( I had...

The family ate at the Windmill last Sunday 19th February, we were so disappointed. The mains were good, but waiting for over an hour with a four year old was pretty tough. The vegetables that arrived were in one small tureen for five adults and a child, we had to ask for more. It was so limited that I asked...

Thank you for your feedback, it's very much appreciated and we can only apologise for your experience. We are very much on a learning curve since taking on The Windmill in December, and your comments have helped us to reassess the old booking system, so customers will now be allocated tables based on a time-frame, to avoid too many people...

This has been my favourite place to go with my parents for ages now. Even though I'm vegan and there's only one thing I can eat from the menu, we still go every time I'm home. My meal last night could be described as leftovers, just wasn't the same. Please don't let this pub go downhill

Karen, thank you for your feedback, it's very much appreciated and I must apologise for your experience with your food choice. We do have a number of vegetarian dishes on the menu, and you highlight that you are vegan and obviously have different needs, so our chef's are now working on vegan options, which we trust will be to your...

I had the Steak Pic with shortcrust pastry and my partner had the Scampi. The menu offers either Chips or Potatoes, we not offered the choice, the...

We booked a table for 9 of us today for Sunday lunch, somewhere different outside of York where we live. I can honestly say the food was some of the best pub food i've eaten (and due to working away i eat out 4/7 days) All of us enjoyed a variety of mains from Sunday Roasts, Lamb Shank, home cooked...

I expected the Stilton to overpower the flavour of the chicken but although the sauce was very cheesy I could still enjoy the chicken, perfect combination which I've had a couple of times since. The meal comes with potatoes and vegetables of the day but I expressed a preference for chips and salad and this was no problem at all....

My partner and I stayed overnight at The Windmill in Dunnington on 10th December 2016. Upon arriving at our room, we noticed that the bedside tables were covered in thick dust and there were a lot of cobwebs in the room. Feeling thirsty after a long drive, we decided to have a drink of water. However, upon picking up the...
