The Windmill was recommended to us by friends and we are so glad we went. My husband had the lamb shank and I had the seafood platter from the specials board which was just wow! Both meals freshly cooked and tasted divine. It was great to see a pub so busy, and we were there at 6.30pm. They even had to turn people away so I highly recommend you ring and book a table. We will definitely be back!

The welcome here is genuine and warm. It has been run by the same family for 100 years. I love the atmosphere of this place. The beams and a crackling log fire during the winter in a massive inglenook fireplace with two seats either side really set this place aside from others. The food was excellent. I had roast pork as it was Sunday. When ordering I was told it would be cooked to order and would be about 20mins, a good sign and I didn't mind I could have sat there happily all day and night.My parents chose the chicken wrapped in bacon with Stilton sauce.When the food arrived, on thankfully hot plates, it was well presented and well portioned with dishes of beautifully cooked separate veg. 9 veg in all.The flavours were sublime, this food never disappoints.I wish this pub was my local, though I'd probably want to be in there every night. A gem of a place. Great guest ales aswell. We will be back when I'm next up visiting my parents, every time if I have my way ! Thanks to all at the Windmill, long may you reign !!

Four of us booked a table at the Windmill last night, we asked for a table at 6.30, they said they were very busy around that time but to come for 6 and they could fit us in.They were very welcoming and friendly, we sat in the bar. We had lovely starters, the mains were piping hot and puddings yummie !!,great home cooked food, friendly service and without a doubt we would recommend it to everyone. The forth generation are now running it and its lovely to glance at the old photos around the room just a lovely feel to the place. We will be returning very soon.
