Food excellent, staff great, slightly lacking in that X factor probably the lack of intimacy due to the very bright overhead spotlighting and random art work, couldn't fault food or service. Specials board king prawns were delicious, lovely selection of well cooked fresh vegetables with the mains, husband said the home made burger was a ten out of ten. I... More

Delighted to find out my father had yet again arranged for us to have a family lunch here when we arrived for a visit. Another fantastic offering of superbly cooked food. Highlight for me was the lamb steak. I honestly cannot remember ever eating lamb that was as tender and as well cooked as this was. Other highlights were the... More

We turned up without a reservation, and we were pleased that they squeezed us in. The Sunday lunch menu was good, with plenty of choice for everyone. The food was great and the service was very attentive and friendly. Great place to eat.

The warm greeting we had from the staff at the Windships was first class. Special mention to Nicky and Caroline who were so friendly and made us feel extremely... More

Winships is our favourite venue for Sunday lunch, both for the high quality of the food and the excellent and friendly staff (that's you Caroline, Sheila and Chloe). The Sunday roasts never disappoint, perfectly cooked and beautifully presented. Have only one suggestion for chef Norman and that is a little more variety in the starters, desserts and vegetables - maybe... More

Visited Winships again last week as party of three. Good to see several other tables in use as business affected by bridge and road closures. As ever, Caroline warmly welcoming and efficient. All decided on the Lamb's Liver and Champ Mash which was superb. Followed by Panna Cotta with sorbet and Vanilla Cheesecake, both of which were delicious. Food could... More
