Second visit here. Last one was almost a year ago. I've had a stern word with myself about leaving it so long! The food is just top notch for the price and location.

We celebrated my mother in law's 90th birthday here. The ambiance and food were excellent, and we all really enjoyed our meal. I would highly recommend this pub.

We visited on a Wednesday, which is burger night, 2 of us are vegetarians and we both agreed that their veggie burger is the best ever! So many restaurants get it wrong, but The Windmill Inn gets it right!! Great starters too, good atmosphere and excellent service. Thank You!

we really enjoy the meals at the Windmill and again they have not disappointed. The Pie nights on Mondays are amazing. i would say it is not really a pie just a large chunk of beautiful beef in a very light pastry and very good value. So pleased to hear that the set menu is back .

We called in here as the half way point between Wiltshire and Leeds. A warm welcome and lovely cosy interior. Menu was varied and as we didn't want loads to eat we opted for ciabattas and chips. The chips were heavenly and the meal a bargain. Would recommend.
