Located in perhaps the most picturesque part of Peterborough the Windmill has a lot to offer. Families with young children are particularly well catered for. Above all the beer garden and children's play area are great.

We meet up as a group of friends regularly and go to the windmill as within walking distance for all of us, menu ok but doesn't change if it wasn't so local we wouldn't keep coming back

I went to the Windmill with my daughter and four children at lunch time last week. The service was excellent and so wa the food. There was very good children's menu and the portions satisfied hungry youngsters. The children were able to play in the excellent playground whilst daughter and I chatted. Highly recommend a school holiday visit.

Came to the Windmill today for a birthday meal. What a brilliant meal it was. Great seating area outside to enjoy the sun. Good selection of drinks at the bar at a reasonable price. Food was brought out very quick and the quality of food was awesome. An all round great day and would recommend to anyone.

This is the second time we've been in recent months, not really impressed. Hard, overcooked Yorkshire pudding and processed-quality turkey on the turkey roast dinner, soggy vegetables with the venison pie. Loud, intrusive 60s background music. Waitress had heavy tattoos on one arm, which I find off-putting. Slow service.

I recently took my mum, nan and sisters here recently for Mothers Day Lunch. We were greeted by lovely smiley staff who clearly know a lot about what they do. We were sat down and told who was looking after us, our server got our drinks order in quickly and they arrived soon after. We decided to try the 'Notchos'... More
