The Windmill has been an East London institution since well before I moved here 25 years ago. During those years the food quality has improved and the establishment has been upgraded. Value for money is the best in town and the quality is excellent, particularly for the burgers - try the bacon and banana burger - you'll be amazed at the huge serving of good quality bacon together with a large juicy burger patty. Curries, sandwiches are first rate, but don't expect a steak to be as well cared for as in a restaurant.Service is first rate because they use an oversupply of students working on commission. Close to the beachfront hotels, this roadhouse is a "Must" for visitors - tables and benches are available for those that prefer not to eat in their cars.

The Windmill is always a good bet when needing a quick and special treat for the kids - especially after dragging them around town for the morning! The service is always prompt and friendly, and pricing is good value for take aways. The view of the sea is fantastic, and for those who need to sit around and wait, there are outside tables.

That is exactly what it is, a road house. The service is pretty good and the food is good. This road house is value for money and the parking area is safe plus there is the beautiful view of the sea, what more could one ask for?

These guys know there stuff....There is only one place to go in East London where they make almost perfect toasted sarmies. Do yourself a favour, order a bacon, egg & cheese toasted sandwich. The amount of bacon they give you is extremely generous and one of the main reasons I keep coming back.

Windmill have become an institution of consistency and great food that has excellent value. As long as they stay like this, I will ALWAYS be a customer.
