Initially taken aback by the pre-order & deposit request but we received a fabulous service on arrival & the food was hot, as ordered & very tasty! I would recommend the Windrose for a relaxed family meal or a night out with friends. Very reasonably priced & very adequate portions. Nice touch that they now have their own lager!!

Took and hour and 15 minutes to receive our main course and judging by the amounts of complaints for other dinners they where all experiencing the same service as us. Just think another chef would speed up the output of food. Nice decor and surrounding just a shame

Food was excellent, reasonably priced and good variety available on the menu! Atmosphere was also great, very relaxed and chilled. Service was much faster than i expected having taken less than 30min from arriving to food being served.

We were shoved into back left-hand corner because I am in a wheelchair and there doesn't appear to be any other places for me since the refurbishment. Friend had to lift me sideways in wheelchair since no room to manoeuvre. Still difficult to get in front door and no access to boardwalk area. Very disappointed at lack of interest or care for disabled people. WE are customers too! I felt I was being hidden away because I use a wheelchair.

Went to see the refurb and have lunch with friends. Refurb a bit overdone for me. In terms of the food - no mussels so mussels and chowder were out; no ribs; 3 out of 4 of us had to re-choose a dish; no Hophouse beer or decaf coffee; both the battered fish and mushrooms ordered by 2 of us were more batter than fish or mushroom. The Caesar salad ordered by one of us was good. The service has always been patchy in the Windrose and I’m not sure it’s improved - please remove empty bottles and glasses as you go along; bring jug - a nice carafe or modern jug would be one up from a cheapo one - of water when people with menus at the start. Disappointed all round really.

Food was great service was not so good there was a bit of confusion with orders, we were left sitting with no drinks for around 20 mins and although we had pre ordered our food it still took over an hour for our food to be served.

I had the chicken goujons which were lovely but I had to ask for a bigger plate to eat them on. The thin small plate was totally impractical. The staff I spoke to was very happy to provide me with a proper size plate so I could eat my dinner without spilling onto the table and also add my chips to the plate. Excellent service by lovely members of staff who could not do enough for us. Had a wonderful time and will definitely be back to try another new dish. Thank you.

Well i wasn't exactly able to enjoy the experience as of last notice, i was contacted that my reservation was cancelled due to the establishment going until refurbishment. It was obviously not something that was decided last minute and had 6 days to let me know this information, rather than ruin m mothers celebration plans for her birthday. Very disappointed with their lack of contact and very angered.
