Description: Situated in the charming hamlet of Chatham Green, The Windmill is a beautiful, real drinking pub, combining outstanding food with a selection of real ales, cocktails and an extensive wine list. Now in the care of Mick and Lydia Binnington, The Windmill has been sympathetically refurbished to maintain its character and original features including the lovely floor to ceiling oak beams. A seasonal menu in our relaxed, cosy restaurant offers elegant, simple food sourced from the best produce from around the local area, paired with a friendly and efficient service.

Visited the Windmill for the first time having heard very good reviews. The reviews were right. This is a fantastic new addition for dining in North Essex. Add the Scotch egg starter to your bucket list - simply perfect. All of our group enjoyed every course. Steaks were cooked well and meet very tasty and tender. Macaroni cheese beautifully creamy (but note you need to like mushrooms which fortunately I do). Maitre d very welcoming and efficient , offering good advice when asked. Will definitely be back.

We had the pleasure of eating at The Windmill a few weeks ago with friends. The food and service were both faultless. Cosy and inviting restaurant with a warm atmosphere and wonderful staff. We are very happy indeed to have such a great quality restaurant on our doorstep. We will be back - soon!

The Windmill continues to impress ,ate there again last night still ticks all the boxes. That old adage , you get what you pay for is so true. Absolute knockout. The different friends we have taken are very envious we have such a wonderful restaurant on our doorstep. If you want to eat quality food forget the 'so called competition locally try the Windmill.

Group of 7 came here for set Christmas menu. The food and service is up there with some of the best I have experienced. Can’t wait to come back and try more dishes. They deserve to be in the top five. Highly recommend it.

Our first visit to the Windmill certainly won'tn be the last! Staff were friendly, I particularly liked the access to the chef/owner who was very sociable. Knowing my wife is confined to a wheelchair they were good enough to phone us in advance to say that there was not currently a specific loo with disabled access. We were greeted on arrival by the lady who turned out to be the co-owner with her husband and taken in a side door with portable ramps for the wheelchair. Inside was a roaring log fire and a very cosy atmosphere. Food was excellent as was the service.
