“2nd stop on Pedders Way”
Reviewed 13 June 2014

Unexpectedly big and bustling pub almost in middle of nowhere. V friendly and willing but not well organised. Make sure you speak to a manager. The food in the evening was very good value - my sirloin steak was exceptionally good. Rooms very generously sized and well equipped/comfortable.

Stayed over the Easter Period. Upstairs room. Had dificulty turning one of the radiators off, staff coudn't fix this over weekend.
Meals substantial, think we ate in a fifferent room each night. Easter Saturday evening was very busy, glad we had booked. didn't understand why waitress couldn't replenish drinks and i had to go to bar, but a minor point.

Room Tip: We had upstairs room, facing main building. Quiet, large for 2

Booked after reading reviews on tripadviser.Could not have been more satisfied with our experience. The room was clean, large and to a good standard. Table was resevered for us to eat on the night time and was not disappointed with the food. All in all good food, good location, good service and great rooms.

Room Tip: Go for the deluxe room I think about £5 more per night. Very spacious by any standards.

We'd booked the double executive room and it far exceeded our expectations. As well as a good sized bedroom, it had a sitting room with TV, a bathroom and a small kitchen (although there were no cooking facilities when we stayed, the owner said the fitting of the oven was imminent). It was well decorated and spotlessly clean and has its own entrance so you can come and go as you please.

We spent the evening and the pub downstairs for a few drinks and dinner. The food was good and the portions generous. Staff were friendly as were the local regulars and the bar had a nice atmosphere. Five hand pulled ales on offer including Adnams Broadside and a locally brewed Windy Miller.

We can thoroughly recommend The Old Windmill and look forward to visiting again. It's also worth getting up early to listen to the birds.

I celebrated my retirement and birthday with my grown up children with their partners, with a dinner party and overnight stay, ten adults in total. We arrived about 14:30hrs in the afternoon when food stopped being served. The staff were very cooperative in providing us with some baguettes and sandwiches, although the kitchen was closed. We booked the deluxe rooms that were very roomy with queen style beds. Everyone enjoyed their evening meal, which was classical pub grub style. We all had the full English breakfast which was two of everything but unfortunately they ran out of sausages we had one each and was provided with ample other items that more than made up for it.
All in all, a good time was had by all and hopefully we shall be returning later in the year.

We stayed overnight in late April. We had a family room which was exceptionally spacious and comfortable. The staff were very welcoming and accommodating, making sure we had everything we needed. The manager had reserved us a table for dinner as there were 5 of us, including 3 small children, so this suited us well. The food was great, and enormous portions. Would highly recommend to others, and will definitely return ourselves.

Reviewed 22 April 2014

We picked this pub to stay at for a long weekend as we are fed up with staying at hotels that end up having a succession of noisy weddings booked which take over the place, keep you awake etc. We were right in that there was no wedding, horrah! There was some kind of function but that wasn't a problem other than the food at one dinner was a bit slow.

The reviews do overrate the place a bit. It is a lovely old pub but a bit 'spit and sawdust', its not fancy at all but it is comfortable and friendly. There were children around and near the bar during the day which I have to say I don't like, but does unfortunately seem the norm in a lot of pubs now. Mostly, this wasn't an issue though especially in the evenings.

There is plenty of parking and the room we had was very comfortable, and enormous!! It was a bit dated but warm with plenty of hot water, lovely fluffy towels and a large comfy bed so for the price its very good. The breakfast was very good too. You can have breakfast in your room which is a nice touch. Food generally was nothing to write home about. It is very basic pub food - if you go away for good food you would be disappointed. Likewise, keep the diet on hold, its chips with most things! The portions are huge - its quantity not quality. We did wander up to the Swan Inn which is pleasant and the menu there seemed a bit more imaginative but we only had a sandwich.

All in all it was a relaxing break. We did sleep well. Our room was facing the driveway with a very small window. The noise from people walking by, traffic, staff going to a storeroom etc could disturb some but it was very quiet later in the evening and I slept well. There is little to do in the area, the countryside is not particularly stunning but it meant we switched off which was a good thing. There is a minor problem with flies but this wasn't just at the pub. The staff work very hard and are very friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: paid slightly more for a larger room but it was downstairs which meant we had people above - was fai...
