Dating back to the 17th century, this attractive pub was once a notorious smuggler’s haunt and still retains an air of historical, roguish charm. The original building has been extended to incorporate a peaceful restaurant, a function room and a large conservatory where the popular Sunday carvery is served. Conveniently located just off the A30, The Windwhistle Inn is set in five acres of beautifully maintained garden, perfect for a day out with children and energetic pups.

Freshness is at the heart of The Windwhistle Inn’s philosophy and amongst the locally sourced produce you’ll often find fruit and vegetables picked fresh from the venue’s garden. We opted to start with a shared plate of nachos laden with cheese, guacamole, sour cream and salsa – it was delightful, and a scattering of jalapeños added a welcome kick.

For the main event, my partner opted for a delectable butternut squash, beetroot and goat’s cheese burger with a generous portion of chips and coleslaw. Showcasing a wonderful combination of flavours, it exceeded all expectations. I sampled the 10oz sirloin steak, which was cooked to perfection and served with some of the best onion rings I’ve ever tasted. We finished with a spectacular lemon sponge – striking the perfect balance of sweet and tart, it was a joy to eat.
