Visited early on a Saturday evening with young children, nice chilled vibe in the restaurant, given space and time for the kids to eat, kids toys and books available in a big box. Food good as always, Storm on tap also very good. Kids portions very large for 5 and 7 year olds!

My third visit to The Windmill in recent weeks. Still the same friendly, efficient staff and freshly cooked food. I was disappointed in the steak sandwich which comprised a steak which had been sliced and placed between substantial slices of bread, and placed on a board which had been covered with paper, presumably for hygiene. It was very difficult to... More

We eat out regular so as always we were looking forward to our meal well what a disappointment my husband had the steak I couldn't believe how small it was and I am sure it was £24! The chips/fries weren't cooked through and raw in parts! The Nachos that we had for starters the chilli was cold and had a... More

We visited the Windmill for a birthday celebration. It's not the first time we'd visited and I'd actually had two excellent meals from there in the past 4 months or so with a friend. Unfortunately on this occasion it was as if we'd ordered food from a different pub and not a very nice one at that. Starters were fine,... More

While I didn't approach this pub with low expectations, I was certainly surprised by how impressed with it I was. The atmosphere is fantastic; it had the feel of the kind of close-knit pubs that my father used to take me to when I was younger. Think dogs sat next to their owners and a man playing an acoustic guitar... More

We had lunch here as a family group and had booked ahead. I think the pub advertises itself as "dog friendly" which is fine, but it needs to make sure it's human friendly too. We were next to two tables that had 6 dogs between them and the smell of dog, the barking and growling did nothing to enhance our... More

We called in by chance yesterday and liked the atmosphere so decided we would eat there. We ordered the Ploughmans Lunch and Fries which were both delicious. The only point to mention was the cheese was 2 pieces of the same cheese, it would of been nice to have a variety of cheeses. Apart from that we have no complaints.... More

I'm sat here still inside the windmill whilst I'm writing this review as it was that good, I couldn't wait to tell everyone. Wish I had found this place sooner seeing as though I live just around the corner in Macclesfield. We chose two items from the nibbles menu to start - sticky chorizo and pork belly and the tempura...

My wife's 60th tonight and a booking for 17 including children. Food was enjoyed by all and once we sat down the gent that seemed to be the bar manager was helpful. If I had a criticism it was on arrival. A little unorganised when plenty of previous notice and duscussion had taken place. But in the end a good... More
