My wife and I ate here this evening and from the moment we walked in and left it was terrible. The service from the lack lustre staff that really didn't want to be there and the boring salad bar to the Luke warm food . There are so many other places around here so my advice is eat elsewhere

Recently had a refit and looks fantastic! Recently visited with family for a birthday meal and both service and food was brilliant! Staff were very friendly and helpful. Food was delicious and good choice. Would definitely go back.

...since our last visit and it is a job well done. Very clean, bright and inviting. Michelle welcomed us with a nice smile but then spoiled it by slouching on a chair whilst taking the order. The meal itself was excellent value for money, one scampi, one chicken burger, free (if there is such a thing) and two refillable soft... More

Havn't been to Winding Wheel for ages and think it will be a while before i go again. A limited menu and bland food not very filling either my hubby was still hungry when he got home. Maybe they think the unlimited free salad makes up for having a tasteless meal!!

Gave this place a try on a road trip from London to Scotland. Decent food and fast service particularly from Jamie our server. Food delivered quickly - just what we needed after a long trip from London. I had the rotisserie chicken and fries, nice and simple and tasty. Recommended.

To keep it short and sweet, I will never return here again,and the last strew was when leaving in my car,saw a member of staff picking up dog s**t in a bag and throwing it in the waste bin as they took the dog back in !!! Had to wait ages to be served,and heard others say the same.
