After reading these reviews we decided to make judgement for ourselves and booked a table for Saturday evening. Being our first time,we really wasn't sure what to expect. On arrival we were greeted by a warm, friendly gentleman which we assumed was the Manager. Although the entire place seemed to be extremely busy the Manager still found time to exchange a few words with us. We were then invited to have a drink at the bar first. The Bar was very busy but was soon served by a very pleasant... (read more)

It was meant to be a birthday celeratory meal so we heard about 'The old Windmill' and booked a table. We arrived at the allocated time, and were told that our table was still being set, and were asked to get a drink and wait in the bar. So we did, and we waited and waited. 25mins later we were shown to our table. When seated we were informed that there were items not available - sea bass, salmon and duck spring rolls. Another 40min later someone eventually came along to take our... (read more)

Ventured out for Sunday lunch with friends and decided to call in at the Old Windmill. Atmosphere, service, food - all fabulous. Maybe a little overpriced but we'll be back. Well done the Windmill (read more)

Visited the Old Windmill 6 months ago and received a below average dining experience. No evidence of Management appeared to be the problem. Food quite good though. Was part of a party this weekend and had a fantastic evening. I think a change of Management! Most evident of someone leading the team as they say. Service was outstanding from our arrival to our departure. Food fabulous. Attentive Manager who had full control of a very busy Restaurant. We'll definitely be back. If you... (read more)

The service leave a lot to be desired. There are better pub/resturants in the area. If you dare challenge the service the junior manager will have you evicted. Some way to run a business ! (read more)

Management and staff have no concept of good customer service.
Its run by a Junior Manager with a bunch of students, I would avoid at all costs ! (read more)

My family and I visited The Old Windmill for Sunday lunch. The food was superb, the service excellent (they did not hurry us, but were not too slow) and the staff were very friendly. We enjoyed a relaxed and tasty sunday lunch in lovely surroundings.
Thoroughly recommend this restaurant, especially for Sunday lunch. (read more)

The Old Windmill:
A £6 starter of Pate should consist of homemade pate and fresh crusty toasted bread.. Not Pate which has been bought from the local Co Op and bread which the Milkman delivered 2 days before.
The Beef Wellington wasn't that nice My misses took a bite and looked at me and said "This is noting like you make it" She was right! It consisted of a tough piece of meat and a thick slice of Pate which must have been what I left over from my starter.. All in all they need a... (read more)

When we arrived we at The Old Windmill we waited where we thought we would be served. After several minutes we had to ask someone about a table even though 2 employees had seen us but said nothing. When we were led to a table, the diner next to where my wife was going to sit had to move and it was clear the tables were too close together. We asked to move and were given a table in another room that led onto the kitchen. I am in my early 50's and while I can enjoy Franz Ferdinand, having a... (read more)
