The Old Windmill is a classic 18th-century English pub set in rural South Hanningfield. Inside, the venue has various dining areas, making it the perfect place for both intimate get-togethers and larger gatherings.

The daily changing menu comprises both traditional and modern options. All meals are freshly prepared and the quality is consistently high. My leek and potato soup arrived with a generous topping of fried onions and plenty of potato chunks. It was a tasty, heartwarming dish, perfect for the approaching autumnal chill. My companion’s choice of red mullet with coconut and coriander lentil dhal was declared divine. The same imaginative flair was evident in my choice of pea and Gorgonzola risotto with spinach and nutmeg croquettes. Pickled radishes added a lovely sweet and sour crunch. My partner opted for one of his favourites – steak and ale pie – and was thoroughly impressed. If you can manage dessert there is plenty of choice, from classic crème brûlée to bread and butter pudding with apricot sauce and clotted cream.

Guests can also partake in local walks organised by the pub’s staff members, which conclude with a rewarding pint or meal in the pub. In the summertime, enjoy all of this in The Old Windmill’s very attractive garden.
