Second visit to the Windmill Inn, we had forgotten just how good it was the first time and we weren't disappointed, the Pork dinner was great and the stuffing was out of this world!!

Called in for lunch and had the most fantastic sticky ribs starter from the set menu. There's a really good choice of mains and the food was beautifully cooked and well presented. Definitely worth a visit. We will return very soon!
