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...

Called in for a bite to eat whilst travelling home. It was busy but there were a few tables available. Was not expecting anything special, but, it was really nice, good service, a really efficient and chatty waitress, so will visit again.

20 of us booked a Christmas meal from work. Had been last two years no problem. This year was awful. Nothing in the meal was freshly prepared, turkey was preformed roll, veg frozen, had to ask for cutlery!! Very poor quality food, sweets all bought in, long waits, no coffees offered, staff inexperienced but worked hard.

We were a family group of 5 people and hadn't booked a table. After ordering our drinks and enquiring if there was a table available for 5 people we were told to wait in the bar area and he would get one ready for us within 5 minutes and, true to the waiter's word, we were being seated. We all...

We decided to go to the Windmill for Sunday Lunch and booked a table prior to going. When we did arrive there was one person only on the bar, whilst other staff were buzzing about in the background but not offering to assist. Eventually after 7 or 8 minutes we were served with drinks, given a menu and told where...
