Went here Saturday night with daughter and sister , as usual excellent all round .
Food was superb, had the salmon and asparagus starter, then the beef brisket followed by Apple crumble.
Very good choice of menu , nice atmosphere and lovely staff.
We will be back soon .

Very easy-going and friendly place with an excellent menu. On a wet and windy day it was a haven of comfort and good food. Our 'lunch' lasted four hours because we were enjoying ourselves so much!

This place never disappoints. The welcome is always warm and genuine, the atmosphere is comfortable and the food is excellent. I tend to shy away from steaks when eating out because they are usually ruined or of poor quality. This is never the case at the Windmill. Anywhere that can consistently serve up a great steak deserves plenty of repeat visits!

Ah simply sublime! Looking for somewhere to take out a universitystudent for his birthday, and found The Windmill through trip advisor. Warmth in welcome as well as the heating, cosy and comfortable bar and a great table with a willow screen for some added privacy. Food wonderful, gorgeous pies, a fabulous mackerel paté starter, impressive steak and some lovely puds. Good choice of vegetarian options. Great service. We will be back!
