Although this is not my local ...I’ve had the pleasure of doing some work refurbishing it this week . All I can say is THAT IS HOW TO RUN A PUB ! For the last three days I’ve earwigged in on a team of people that truly care . The phone rings constantly with reservations and each and every time it’s answered it’s with care and attention . We were fed whilst working there and the food was prompt and truly delicious ....we were made to feel truly welcome . A true measure of success is how the customers are ( and there’s lots of them) and all of them were cheery and sociable . Was an ABSOLUTE pleasure to be in your hospitality for the time we worked there . What an amazing bunch of people . And the small fortune spent on the place this last week has TOTALLY transformed it . A fantastic country pub with a contemporary twist and a genuinely lovely team that take pride in what they do . I will definitely be spreading the word

We went to the windmill on Saturday 20th November. There where 6 of us in our party the reception and the ambiance was lovely There was a big open fire and a friendly atmosphere. We all had different meals from steak to fish which was all fresh and very good quality food at a reasonable price. It was busy we sat in the downstairs lounge bar which was great. We will definitely be returning and will be recommending to our friends. Thank you for a wonderful meal and great experience.

Imagine it's your wedding anniversary and your looking for a good night out !.
That's just what we didn't get !!!
Looked at the menu, Ah Beef Wellington, Not cheap at about £12.00 each, but what the hell we will have it. The meal came out and to my surprise it looked like a burger with a bit of pastry thrown around it, Definitely not fillet of Beef as it should be and no pate' between the meat and pastry. The so called beef was rubbish and un-edible.
We ate what we could and left the rest. I then went to the bar and paid my bill. After this I thought I must say something so I called the manager at the bar and told him about the meal. He apologised to me and said he would put it right next time and offered us a meal on the house when we came back.
About two weeks later we returned. Had our meal and had to pay for it !!!! as the manager was no on this night and had left no notes of reference to this meal, I gave a card to the barman with all my details on, and never heard a thing. I did frequent this restaurant about every two weeks for many years and in the past found it to be OK sometimes and other times "hit and miss"
Since the last occasion I've not been back in 12 months nor would I recommend it to others.
Is it so hard to issue a voucher for a problem like this. Should anyone from the windmill wish to contact me 01543 274176. Cant see it, don't think they are bothered.
