Lovely atmosphere on arrival, attentive staff all way through. Enjoyed the food, the only criticism is trying to get the fat from the beef was difficult because the knives were not sharp, maybe steak knives could have been offered.
Would come again, much prefer a small cosy restaurant,than the larger establishment. However do enjoy background music.
My husbands birthday
a lovely evening only spoilt by a very loud party in the bar which made the dining room impossibly loud...luckily they left to have dinner in the private side leaving us to enjoy our evening and not listening to over excited men shouting!
Spot on as always ! Love this place !
Extremely beautifully prepared and flavorful food.
We had a lovely meal and I could not fault the service, so friendly and cheerful.
Great food in a cosy ambience. Attentive service. A gem of a restaurant in Chelmsford! I would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant.
Amazing food and service as always. Best Restaurant in Essex!
went on Saturday lunch time great value excellent food
An amazing place, wonderful food and lovely staff! It’s a must!
Top notch food served by delightful Staff. Will definitely return.
Mick & Lydia have created a wonderful, warm and welcoming gastro pub. The food is outstanding, the service is spot on and the atmosphere is friendly and comfortable. Can't recommend this highly enough.
Great food but we went on a Sunday at 15:00 so probably the last table to sit down so it was very quite after a little while
Brilliant, as always. Looking forward to the next visit.
Lovely country pub with great food and wine. Service exceptional!
The ambiance in The Windmill immediately makes you relaxed and at ease. The menu is interesting with some varied dishes not found at most restaurants but always include some standards and an excellent vegetarian selection. The outstanding service helps to make for an overall great dining experience and in my opinion one of the best in the area.
Fantastic food and food service. Very small environment and we just happened to be seated next to a bigger party which meant we could not hear ourselves speak.
Would definitely visit again and recommend
Nice surroundings, good choice of menu.Service excellent, could not have been more accommodating. Will definitely be back
Great place, outstanding food and the service was impressive, strongly recommend 👍
Wonderful food. My all time favourite is the scotch egg starter. The steaks were perfectly cooked and succulent. A lovely experience as always.
Delicious food with a broad and imaginative choice of dishes. Sensible and reasonable pricing given the quality of the produce. Excellent and friendly service with tables realistically spaced. All adds up to a five star rating.
Fabulous food, wonderful reception as always. Recommend the Windmill to everyone.
I went to The Windmill with friends who hadn't been before, and they loved it .Food was v good quality & well cooked.We will be back
Perfect in every aspect. Would highly recommend. Food absolutely amazing.
Great experience... high standards have been carefully maintained
We have been to the Windmill several times now and it always lives up to expectations. Food is first class and the restaurant is quiet and welcoming. First class experience and will go again !
Really lovely cosy setting, simple food done extremely well. Each course was outstanding. Excellent service. Will definitely be returning and recommending to friends.
I enjoyed my meal. The only thing I found that the pubs atmosphere was not welcoming a bit unwelcoming
Excellent food, fabulous service! Children’s menu is limited.
I would highly recommend your restaurant to all my friends and relatives. We had all thoroughly enjoyed our lunch at your great restaurant. The food was delicious, service attentive and ambience cosy. I look forward to returning soon! Many thanks for a great meal. Sam

We went to the windmill to celebrate my parents 50th Wedding Anniversary & couldn’t be more delighted with the card they gave them, this was a lovely touch.
The staff are friendly & efficient, the food is excellent.
We all look forward to the next time we get to dine there!
Absolutely exceptional atmosphere, food is always top-tier. The new function room looks incredible. Would highly recommend a visit, booking is essential.
Fantastic place with brilliant service, really lovely steak it was lovely to have 1 just as I asked. And easy to eat really moist lovely homemade chips.
Thank you Soo much we will return !
Went for my wife’s birthday
Lovely atmosphere, excellent food
Although it is a small intimate pub restaurant from the moment we arrived we were welcomed warmly had a drink at the bar before being escorted to our table. It is rare to fond a place where all 3 courses were excellent but they were. I had fish omellete which was novel and excellently flavoured followed by sea bream on wonderful tapenade. To finish perfect chocolate fondant with pistachio ice cream. All courses perfect. Well done ill be back for sure.
