My husband & I have just returned home from a truly lovely day out with our 2 year old son. The Windmill Tea Rooms is a great place for all of us. With the sun shining we had a great time eating the gorgeous cakes whilst our son played in their outdoor play area. I even managed to sneak a look around the on site shops & picked up a handbag (don't tell the hubby!)
The staff couldn't have been more friendly & helpful, even making sure our little boy had whatever he wanted to eat (& a cheeky ice-cream). The owners themselves were also there & were happy to chat & tell us all about the history of the place.
I have already recommend the windmill to my friends & will be there again next weekend.

In short......... Beautiful place, beautiful surrounding, beautiful people.

What a great weekend we've had. Spent one night camping in this idyllic location, felt like we were in the middle of no where and our daughter loved it, especially looking around the windmill. Enjoyed great food in the tearoom also, great service...the owners really made us feel welcome, would definitely recommend and we cant wait to return!!

Very disappointing. Tried a second visit after finding the cafe smelled of chip fat the first time. Waitress completely ignored us and upon eventually being served, the crockery, pot (smeared with marks) of tea, milk jug and packets of sugar were virtually thrown onto the table without so much as a word. Such a lost opportunity at an otherwise very pleasant site with interesting shops. A smile, a few words and pretty, clean crockery and utensils would have made all the difference.

We have visited The Windmill several times before and loved it so much we took the family along for lunch and an afternoon in the sun. Its always great service with lots of choices for lunch, all the usual favourites along with a great specials board and I make sure to leave room for one of the fabulous cakes! The children loved the outdoor space and play area (I love the shops) and the in-laws enjoyed themselves so much they booked a weekend on the caravan site.

Lovely location, a shame about the service, truly awful, the miserable waitress more or less threw our order onto the table. Pot of tea for four barely filled 4 cups. Cakes were bland - made with margarine!
Very poor!
