The Windmill Inn

Enjoy a contemporary informal dining experience within a traditional country pub setting or just come for a drink in The Windmill Inn's relaxing bar atmosphere. Open Every Day Lunchtime and Evening (Restaurant closed Sunday evenings).

Reviewed By Robert H - Leicester, United Kingdom

We've been twice now and were delighted each time. On both occasions we opted for the extremely good value "house menu". Between us we had beef bourguignon, trio of pork pie of the day, nut roast and fish. The difference between this and many other foodie pubs it that the food is chef prepared rather than just chef cooked. If offers a small but quality menu rather than an extensive list suggesting large van deliveries, large freezers and a range of micro waves. The Windmill is exactly the opposite. It provides fresh food,thoughtfully prepared and cooked with a relaxing atmosphere. The draught beers are a!so exceptionally good. Two courses for £14, three courses for £18. Go there - I doubt you'll be disappointed. Why not five stars? We did find it a tad chilly. Yes this was during the extreme cold spell but I also found it a little cool during our first visit in December. We will happily return and if the room is a few degrees warmer will happily award five stars.

Thanks to being opposite the Curve theatre, there's always a good chance of spotting members of the cast and crew of the latest show. But the chief attraction is the stylish urban atmosphere, relaxed vibe and great selection of drink and food options. A particularly good place for lazy Sundays. Also has a good loyalty card system.

Reviewed By Tagfcuk - High Wycombe, United Kingdom

We get a little confused as to what good Italian food is because of the high street being so full of 'Italian' chains. OGGI Simply Italian is what I remember Italian restaurants to be like before these brands came along.
The menu offers a combination of simple classics (I started with aubergine with tomato and parmesan) and elegant grills and seafood (I had the mixed grilled fish for main). And it all feels homemade and authentic.
The staff are enthusiastic and helpful, the atmosphere is friendly and relaxed and the place was packed. We booked a couple of months ago to make sure we got in.
I'm really looking forward to returning and trying some different things as I was struggling to chose which dish to have I was so spoiled for choice. You can always see if the food is good when patrons are insisting their dining partners try parts of their food to show how tasty it is.

Lilu Cuisine

Lilu is an Indian Fine Dining restaurant. When the restaurant was first envisaged we realised that we had to be different from our contemporaries. We have an Indian fusion menu where you will find such culinary delights as Ostrich, Lamb Shank and Red Snapper. However, if you would like a traditional curry then our award winning chef is pretty good at those too!

Reviewed By Amanda K

Tried this pizzeria tonight with a Groupon voucher and we had such a lovely welcome. There were seven of us ,four adults and three girls aged 9-11 years. We ordered six pizzas and were really surprised by the variety on their Signature menu. We all chose a different one and they were ready in a few minutes.
We all shared and there was plenty to go around. Everyone agreed they were really tasty pizzas!
The staff were very friendly even though we were the last ones in as it closes at 8pm but we didn’t feel pressured to hurry.
We would go again and would certainly recommend it to friends. It was approximately £10 per head max but we had a voucher so it was greatly reduced for our visit.
