  • Phillips is a Michelin-starred chef and often appears on the likes of "Saturday Kitchen" and "Ready Steady Cook"

What's included

  • Worth up to £63.80, this offer is valid for lunch Monday-Friday or dinner Tuesday-Friday, from 3 January-28 March, 2013, making it an ideal post-Christmas treat.
  • Each person can choose any three courses from the Winter Set Menu. We like the sound of:
  • - Dressed Dorset crab with baby artichoke and lamb's lettuce salad, crab mayonnaise and toasted dill bread
  • - Marinated and grilled Berkshire pork chop with parsnip and swede mash, caramelised Rubens apples and shallot, baby gherkin and grain mustard sauce
  • - Steamed sponge pudding with blackberries, pears and vanilla custard
  • This offer also waives the usual supplement for the cheese board as a dessert option. The meal ends with coffee and chocolates.
  • Owner Richard Phillips, who trained at London's famous Savoy Hotel before becoming head chef for Marco Pierre White, was awarded his first Michelin star at the age of 28. He often appears on top foodie shows such as "Ready Steady Cook" and "Saturday Kitchen", and is a regular on ITV's "Lorraine". The Windmill uses as much local produce as possible and sources everything from Great Britain

I greatly enjoyed the presentation and flavours of the food, excellent.

When booking the windmill the staff just seemed impatient, hurried and dismissive. On the night the food was nice but unlike other Richard Phillips restaurants there were no little extra touches like some home made bread before the meal. Also the coffee and chocolateS was a joke, there was just one tiny chocolate that seemed almost pointless. I dont know if the chocolate was just because it was an on offer meal but it wouldnt make me want to go back for a full price meal. There are other restaurants that are better presented with better food and service, and although the food was ok it really wasnt the best.

The food was ok, and the staff were better on the night than they had been on the phone.

The atmosphere was good and the service was good. Two of us enjoyed the food, but the two of us who had lamb found it very stringy. Portions were generally too small.

We had a delightful evening at The Windmill celebrating our wedding anniversary. The atmosphere was perfect and the food superb!

The only thing we found not ideal was that our main course was brought to the table IMMEDIATELY after we had finished our starters!! This was a great shame as we feel a short interval was necessary.

First of all, we had to wait ages for our table to become available (I guess this isn't really the fault of the restaurant, as they could hardly throw out the other guests)! I had 2 glasses of wine (£9.50 per glass)!! Once finishing the first glass, I noticed that there was 'muck' all up the side of the glass. Didn't think much of it. Then I noticed in the second glass, that there was lots of white stuff in the bottom of the glass. So I sent it back. I was still charged for the first glass! Neither my husband or I (or the children) really enjoyed our meals. The batter on my child's road in the hole, had far too many over powering flavours in, and our steak dish was far too rich. Even the bread and butter was 'over-flavoured'. Our potatoes were cooked inside a "salt bread roll", which we were told not to eat. Well this wasn't difficult to stick to, as I could not cut it open. I even tried using my steak knife, but had to call the waiter over, through fear of it flying across to the next table! We are big foodies, but will not be returning here. Bit of a disappointment, as we really enjoyed another Richard Phillips restaurant.

Not really.
