Unfortunately, the area we were given for our meeting was unhelpful. We were served , efficiently and with civility by Monica and others who brought our food, however. Visited The Windmill Clapham on 2018-02-21

Dear Graham I'm sorry you didn't find the restaurant appropriate for your meeting though I'm sure you appreciate we normally let you use our function room free of charge, when we have customers wanting to pay to use the room they have to take priority. if you'd like to guarantee use of the Blue Room then do let myself or Katie know and we can explain the costs involved in reserving that room for exclusive use. Kind Regards Ben Evans General Manager

Arrived at 14.00 to what left like a chaotic set up.... extremely long queue to the Restaurant with many empty tables still. When we were seated, we had a lovely waiter, for whom nothing was too much trouble. However, the roasts were disappointing... fatty beef and dry lamb, soggy potatoes and watery gravy.

Really nice venue and atmosphere and some staff tried to make up for their mistakes, but altogether the service was appalling. My main course came out with everybody else's starters and so we asked for it to be returned to the kitchen, once everybody's starter was finished and main course was ready! However, the staff then proceeded to serve everybody's main and clearly forgot about mine - a waitress even snapped at us for asking where my food was because people had been waiting to start their mains for 20 minutes and mine still had not arrived. When it did arrive, it was clear that they had simply heated up my meal that was returned to the kitchen from 40 minutes ago! Visited The Windmill Clapham on 2018-02-04

The place is nice and our starter was nice (baked camembert) however I think it's more a place to have a few drinks rather than a meal. After ordering, we expected a healthy meal with vegetables and sweet potatoes and ended up with a plate full of deep fried vegetables. Very oily and not that tasty. Same for the burger.

The Windmill in Clapham Common it has always been my favourite local pub/venue, however on this last visit I've found the venue a bit rundown and not really looked after, this makes me very SAD because as a wedding photographer I always recommended this venue, but now I'm not too sure we'll do it again. Staff is very friendly and I absolutely love the location, but please please please make sure to look after it properly, also the state of the toilets it wasn't really good!

Hi Paola Thank you for your review and recommendations to your wedding clientele. We are aware that the pub and restaurant is looking a little tired and the good news is we're having a huge refurb this year. Sadly the beautiful wallpaper in the ladies loos has been ripped off the wall by visitors which sadly ruins it for others. This is scheduled to be replaced in the next few weeks so should be looking tip top in no time. Hope to see you in again soon. Best wishes Katie

No better way to see in the new year than a two night stay at The Windmill. Hotel Manager and staff very accomomdating, live entertainment and ambience fabulous - highly recommend. Only slight downside was the food on NYE which was a set menu wasnt to their usual standard, arrived rather cold but this may be due to how busy it was as i have eatern there before and the food was great Visited The Windmill Clapham on 2017-12-31

We held a 39th birthday party in The Blue Room. From our first enquiry we received efficient, thoughtful and patient care from all involved. Ben, the manager was most helpful as were his staff both leading up to the party and during it. They were very kind in making a tasty vegan option for a couple of our guests.

We had our office Christmas party here at the end of December, for a total of 37 of us (including a large number of wheelchair users). The space we were given was perfect for what we needed, with easy access to the toilets and space to move around. The staff were extremely accommodating, really friendly and the food was great for a reasonable price. All in all everyone had a fantastic evening, and I would highly recommend it to anyone.

To be honest, it wasn't great. I haven't been for a while but the food was decidedly average and over priced. £2 each for 1. A small pot of baked beans, 2. Two mushrooms and 3. One hash brown is ridiculous. The waiting staff got our order wrong so my mother eat her main after my wife, children and I had finished ours. But the most disappointing was that the waiting staff were miserable and that the customer service was poor. Not one smile or happy banter from anyone. It was my mothers 75th birthday which made it all the more disappointing and not even the candle on the cake could rescue a decidedly below par experience. But at least we were able to have our puppy with us which was the only positive. Pull your socks up Windmill!! Visited The Windmill Clapham on 2017-12-28

Hello there Thank you for taking the time to review us and I'm so sorry to hear of the lack of service during your last visit.

This is also no excuse for the lack of team cheer and I can only apologise immensely that you experienced this.

As local residents to the windmill we often visit with nothing to worry about. Service, food and environment are why we are regulars. Unfortunately, this time, things were terrible! Service was incredibly slow, rude and unfriendly. Asking the waitress for anything seemed to be an inconvenience to her. Our main course took 1 hour and 10 minutes to arrive and mine was cold when it eventually did. Condiments that were requested never arrived. Nobody asked how things were at any point that we were there. The fire went out when we sat down and wasn’t lit until after we left. If we hadn’t been in a rush to leave and didn’t want to spoil a family occasion then I would have said something to the manager at the time. Paying £200+ for a festive lunch to receive such terrible service and quality at a popular pub was incredibly disappointing and overpriced. It has unfortunately put us and our family off returning. A great shame! Visited The Windmill Clapham on 2017-12-29

Very good. The food was plentiful and for mass catering was good quality. My only criticism is that the pudding (a tart) was smaller than I would have liked and the wine was cleared off the table little too quickly before we had finished - but that is being picky on my part.

We had a reservation booked a month ahead for Christmas dinner, but the people before us went quite a bit over their reservation and no other tables were offered to our group. So we ended up eating in the bar area where we were waiting. Not a big problem usually, but it was disruptive to keep going to the bar to order food and drink and no attempt was made to have our food arrive at the same time -- not ideal for Christmas Eve Dinner with 14 people arranged in advance. All in all, still a cosy atmosphere and a good time. Visited The Windmill Clapham on 2017-12-24

Always a great place to eat just a little disappointed how many unruly children there were running around and screaming. I blame the parents who clearly don’t give a damn. It was the evening of Christmas Eve so don’t expect this. We asked to move out from the formal dining area to escape which they were very happy to help. Funny thing is that dogs are not allowed in the formal dining area I’d ban children as dogs are far better behaved! Visited The Windmill Clapham on 2017-12-24

Poor service, the waitresses were rude, not welcoming, and not very gentle with the food and drinks (I got food poured over my shirt). And the food was not even very good.

Service slow, we had to constantly flag someone down to get drinks as nobody ever came to the table to ask if we were OK and considering we were such a large group, I am surprised as we would have drank more. We ended up leaving early and going somewhere else to drink. Barman very rude, one in particular. Didn't get his name sorry. Food was OK .. starters were a bit weird, but mains were OK. Atmosphere great! Just service that let you down. Visited The Windmill Clapham on 2017-12-15

Hello there I'm sorry to hear that the service was lacking on your visit to us. We hold our hands up that on a couple of occasions we were short staffed due to staff being off poorly last month and some guests didnt experience the service they should have. Are you able to contact me on windmillevents@youngs.co.uk to discuss this further and see if we can make it up to you. Best wishes Katie

Food was nice, service seriously terrible, it is supposed to be a staff feel good moment, not struggling to find our food and drinks- even finding someone to give us our table was nearly fifteen minutes. Visited The Windmill Clapham on 2017-12-15

Hello there Thank you for taking the time to review us and I'm so sorry to hear of the lack of service during your last visit. With Winterville arriving over Christmas and being short staffed over the last few weeks due to the wretched colds doing the rounds, we are aware that some days the service fell short for some guests. I can only apologise immensely that you experienced this and would love the opportunity to invite you back windmillevents@youngs.co.uk to see if we can make this up to you, and hopefully change your opinion on our service?

It's a lovely pub and we had a nice table tucked away at the back so had privacy but meant that we didn't get any service. We had to go up and ask every time we wanted more drinks and waited an hour for the starters to come even though we'd pre ordered. The steak and chips was great but only 3/6 of our puddings came and had to wait 30 mins for the others as they had forgotten them. We complained and management were very understanding but probably wouldn't book Christmas here again Visited The Windmill Clapham on 2017-12-15

Hello Thank you for your review and I'm sorry to hear that the service fell short on your last visit and the delay in receiving some of your puddings. I wonder if you could email me at windmillevents@youngs.co.uk so we can discuss making it up to you? Best wishes Katie

Plus side: very nice setting, good food but: desserts not as nice as the rest of the menu, especially the apple crumble, service really keen to see us go quickly (I think it is not so nice to be forced out of the restaurant at just 10:15) Visited The Windmill Clapham on 2017-12-13

Hello Thank you so much for your feedback. I'm really pleased to hear you liked the pub and the food. I have fed this back to the kitchen. We have changed some of the deserts now. I'm sorry to hear you felt rushed off your table at 10,15. The restaurant does close around this time, however the pub area is still fully open and am sorry if this wasnt communicated correctly and not handled as well as it should have been. I have let the restaurant manager know so she can speak to the team about this. I do hope to see you again soon (and give us your verdict on the new puddings? Best wishes Katie

Thank you so much The Windmill for putting on a wonderful Christmas lunch for us. The food was amazing, as was the service. Our party occupied The Blue Room; it was beautifully decorated and very cosy. This is our 2nd Christmas celebrating at The Windmill and I suspect many more years to come too. I would recommend The Windmill to others without hesitation. I hope the team at The Windmill have a wonderful 2018! Visited The Windmill Clapham on 2017-12-13

I have been to the Windmill lots of times and usually love it however my friend and i’s experience on Tuesday night was very poor. It took us 15 minuites to be given a menue when we sat down and another 20 for our drinks to arrive. We both ordered burgers which were very dry and disspointing with a sea of cold chips covering our plate. Visited The Windmill Clapham on 2017-12-12

Sunday roast was excellent, not to long of a wait to be seated. Only issue I would say is no one came over to check on us of how the food is and if we needed anything. Had to get the attention of someone. Visited The Windmill Clapham on 2017-12-10

Hello Thank you for taking the time to review your last visit with us. I'm so pleased to hear you roast and sorry to hear that the waiting team didnt check back on your meal.

The Windmill in Clapham is the perfect venue for a Christmas do. The booking system allowed everyone to pay their own deposits and choose from the menu. The food was lovely and enjoyed all three courses and was impressed by the gluten free dessert option too . Great service and relaxed atmosphere and everyone enjoyed themselves. Felt a little bad for the staff as so busy with numerous parties, but they were really helpful and it was great not to be rushed at all. Can't wait to come back next year . 😀 Visited The Windmill Clapham on 2017-12-09

Big portions. Food OK ish for the vegetarians. All a bit pricey. Some good service but waitress attempt to remember all our orders without writing down or putting in ipad was never going to work (she did come back and check) Visited The Windmill Clapham on 2017-12-03

Reply from The Windmill Clapham

Hello Thanks so much for your feedback. Im glad to hear the portions were of a good size and will give the kitchen the feedback on the vegetarian options on the menu. When writing our menus we do endeavour to ensure there are dishes that cater for all needs and dietary requirements, as well as being varied. Our menu changes seasonally so I'll ask them to look at the options again for the next menu. I'm sorry the waitress had to come back and check your order. They do have tablets so will speak to them about making sure they utilise them for all orders. Hope to see you again soon! Katie

Disappointed. It was Sunday Lunchtime. We were shown to the darkest table in a corner. Food was one vegetarian but roast and one lamb roast. Vegetable selection disappointing. Nut roast nothing to write home about. Decided not to bother with desert so spent a long time indicating we would like a bill. Waiter did not know we wanted bill But just did not see us. In the end had to walk up to the till for service. Am not likely to return in a hurry. Visited The Windmill Clapham on 2017-12-03

Hello I'm sorry to hear that you were disappointed with your recent visit to us. We usually get really good feedback on all our roasts so am really sorry to hear that we didnt meet your expectations.

The pub is perfectly situated on Clapham Common and was lovely and cosy with dogs and fires. The staff were fantastic - very helpful and attentive but laid back and friendly. We were in a group of 11 for the 3 course Christmas menu and everyone really enjoyed their food - which was all hot and well presented when it came out of the kitchen. The restaurant area of the pub is bright and spacious yet comfortable and I would return for another occasion, either to eat or enjoy a few ales in the bar area. Thank you to Katie and the rest of the team for looking after our party! Visited The Windmill Clapham on 2017-12-01

I have been to the Windmill several times and chose to come on a Sunday for a farewell lunch with a family member. At first it was a bit daunting walking into an extremely busy pub with a bit of a disorganised queue for the restaurant. We had to wait about 15 minutes to just ask about our reservation. That said once we were sat down in a very spacey part of the dining room, the experience was faultless. Service was great, the roasts were very good, even the vegetarian option. It was a shame the roast potatoes weren't the same but I don't think there is such a thing as veggie goose fat. Desert was superb and all in all it was great value for money. We were sort of prompted to leave because our two-hour time was up, which was OK because we had just about finished. Will definitely go back, the food is amazing!

Hello Thank for you taking the time to write your lovely review. I'm sorry to hear it took a little while to be shown to your table.

I'm thrilled to hear you enjoyed everything once in the restaurant and will pass your feedback to the kitchen team. Veggie goose fat potatoes would be amazing but we're working hard to nail them without the goose fat. As soon as we have we'll give you a shout so you can give them a try :) Best wishes Katie

The pub itself is lovely, cosy and love the interior. Its a shame it all felt a bit rushed, and the Roast dinner was just ok, the beef was very over done and the cut was so thick, so wasnt the best roast beef ive had :(. Think they were just too busy. Visited The Windmill Clapham on 2017-11-26

Hello there Thank you for your review. I'm glad to hear you liked our pub and am sorry to hear the roast beef didnt live up to our usual standard. We always serve our roast beef rare unless specified so I'm so sorry if yours came out overdone. We always have a manager at the pass in the kitchen, ensuring only the best leaves the kitchen and your's must have slipped through the net which I can only apologise for. I do hope you come back for a roast again so we can show you how incredible our roasts usually are. Hope to see you soon! Katie

Booked for 4pax but we only were 2pax. We ve been niclely showed a table for 2. The restaurant looked very nice and well decorated. The tables are cleaned. The table was in the side of the room and the wall was made fom wodden panel. It was very weird as it was a very strong echo every Time we talk with my friend.we had to move away from the wall to speak. The waitress was quite new and didnt know the drinks menu and had to go to the bar to check the type of beer they had. When ordered she came back and told me thst the beer i order wasn't available. The food arrived in a very large white plate. It looked ok. The poached egfs were soft but not very hot. The pulled pork tasted fine but the sauce which was mix with it had a very strange taste. The toasted muffin was a bit soggy but ok the spinach were ok but not very hot Either . The Place was very busy and they were a lot of familly and kids arround. It was nice atmosphere. Overall it was OK but i was expecting a bit of a better service and a bit better quality food. Visited The Windmill Clapham on 2017-11-25

Chose this as it was a dog friendly place. Arrived and it was completely packed with Rugby fans - no warning that the match was being shown. It was unbearably loud. The restaurant area was empty but we were told there were no dogs allowed there. Visited The Windmill Clapham on 2017-11-18

Reply from The Windmill Clapham

Hello Thank you for your review and sorry to hear you were disappointed on your recent visit. As a pub we do show the international rugby games and do get busy on these days. We advertise these matches on our website, chalk boards inside and outside the pubs as well as on all of our social media platforms to try and ensure guests are aware the games are on. I'm sorry if you missed these. We are a very dog friendly pub and even have our very own pub dog Max. Dogs are allowed in all areas of the pub except the restaurant areas as we also appreciate that some guests like to be able to dine without pets being around. Even Max isnt allowed in this area of the pub. As I mentioned I'm sorry you were disappointed with your last visit but do hope you visit again when the rugby isn't on give us the opportunity of seeing us at our best. Best wishes Katie

Positive - I got the time wrong so I turned up at 1 for a 12pm booking and I was still seated as there were tables available.

Beautiful setting and layout of the bars and restaurants, but there were 3 TV's showing the rugby and this created a very disruptive dining environment. The food was also very disappointing (I specifically asked whether the chicken burger was a plain breast or fried - I was told it was a plain breast, and was presented with a dry and deep fried piece of chicken). The other fillings were extremely disappointing and presentation was very poor. I had been to the pub on the night before for some drinks with friends and was very pleasantly surprised, so my family dinner on the Saturday night came as a huge disappointment.

Hi unfortunately I was unable to attend for my booking on Sunday 29 October, I tried to call to advise so that someone else could have our table, but the recorded message advised they were too busy to take calls and to go on line to book. sorry i wasn't able to let you know, i did try.

Hello there Thank you for letting us know and trying to contact us to cancel your table. Firstly I would like to apologise that we weren't able to answer your call. We have a reception team who endeavour to try and take every call but sadly some do get missed. It's strange that you received this message as our automated message if it rings too long is is to press a number to go through to the reception and leave a voicemail for us or, if you are looking to book a table, you can do so by visiting our website. We also email you a booking confirmation email which has the option to cancel your table for a booking of up to 12 guests to make it as easy as possible for guests to cancel without too much trouble for them.

I was a little nervous as some recent reviews were hardly complimentary - however, we have been here a couple of times before and had great food. So I took the chance and booked it. The food and service was great. Portions are a little too generous which can frighten the elderly with small appetites but tasty and well presented. Taking pudding home because we couldnt eat it all was a good way to keep everyone happy. Thank you. Visited The Windmill Clapham on 2017-10-07

Not much food left on the menu at 6:30pm - only one type of roast and also many of the normal mains had sold out. It took 4 attempts at an order to find a dish that was available. Despite booking online and receiving a confirmation email, we were granted a table through luck as there seemed to be no record of any bookings, and a table for two had to be made into a table for three. The waitress coped very well with the situation, and was very apologetic about having to continually deliver all the bad news. Visited The Windmill Clapham on 2017-08-13

Unfortunately we had a very disappointing visit to The Windmill. The service was very slow and when we received our meals, all three were not very nice and given the cost for a roast dinner they were definitely not worth the money. The chicken was very dry, the lamb was so fatty that it couldn't be eaten and the vegetarian options was actually just a line of puff pastry on a plate. We were offered a free dessert but by that point it really wasn't good enough. Visited The Windmill Clapham on 2017-08-06

Stayed for 3 nights - lovely quirky room, maybe a little too quirky (eg Roman blind had no means of securing other than lodging on window pane; taps so close to glass shelf above that difficult to operate). We also had a lovely meal in the restaurant and the breakfasts were good. The staff were all very friendly which was lovely. Visited The Windmill Clapham on 2017-07-28

Great atmosphere and location but there were several let downs on the booking front and organisation. No clear communication up to the event in regards to paying for meals in advance in the 'shack package'- which led to me queuing for over 1 1/2 hours to pay for burgers for guests, when we had spent roughly £200 on them. Additionally, we had to ask security and manager on the night to remove those seated in our area we paid £100 for (we had rang earlier to inform them we would be arriving 7pm- and the reservation Sheets instead has stated 5pm. When I rang to explain the problems and complain afterwards, all I was offered was a 'glass of wine', despite spending over £500 that night in total. Visited The Windmill Clapham on 2017-07-08

It was a good table for the rugby but for £20 a head (for children too!) we expected a decent cappuccino with our breakfast (filter coffee only- even though we were happy to pay extra, they even charged cappuccino prices for the filter coffee!) especially as it wasn't very busy. Also, we asked for toast with our brekkie and it never arrived. We were a little disappointed for the money we spent. Visited The Windmill Clapham on 2017-07-08

Everyone was extremely pleasant and helpful.

Sunday's always a busy one at the Windmill on a sunny day. The food was quick and tasty although not quite complete but wasn't an issue as the portion was more than generous. Service a bit off but to be expected. The waiters were really friendly. Crumble was microwaved and dry but sent back and got a surprisingly delicious strawberry pannacotta. Will always go back for the roast here. Visited The Windmill Clapham on 2017-06-04

We had a lovely birthday meal for my Father at The Windmill on Sunday evening. Three of the party had specific dietary requirements which both the serving and kitchen staff went out of their way to accommodate for. Thank you all very much Visited The Windmill Clapham on 2017-05-28

It could have been so good but was the complete opposite. Service was appalling, I had to ask for our plates to be removed 30mins after we had finished eating, they were not busy at all, 2 waitresses spent their time talking rather than doing their job. There was 7 of us, 5 adults and 2 children and we had to wait for ever for the children's glasses of apple juice. The location is great and the pub is very nice but the service is just simply terrible, such a shame. Visited The Windmill Clapham on 2017-05-27

Unfortunately it was a disappointment as we had a table booked for 4.00pm and arrived in good time - our food did not arrive until 5.15 pm which did not go down too well with three very hungry children - you need more kitchen staff. Visited The Windmill Clapham on 2017-05-21

The hotel is lovely and in a delightful location on Clapham Common - our room had a nice view out on to the common, hotel reception staff were very pleasant and welcoming. (Please note the 2 stars is for restaurant experience not hotel) We dined in the hotel restaurant in the evening which went from bad to worse. The waiting staff were distracted and very casual which we ignored for the most part as it was an occasion to be with family that we did not want to spoil. However the last straw was, after being ignored for at least 15-20mins we asked for the sweet menu and were told by our flippant waitress that 'the kitchen's closed sweetheart'! The Windmill advertises having the table for a 2 hours slot and you would presume within that time you would have the courtesy of being offered a starter, main and sweet (even a coffee would have been nice). When you complain we were pointed at, talked about and generally made to feel uncomfortable by team members as we had a drink in the bar. The next morning we made a point of talking to Ben Evans, General Manager who was seemingly not interested and continued to read emails as we talked to him - when we went to pay our bill his way of dealing with it was to refund the cost of our meal, very generous but not what we were aiming for when we complained. Hopefully the staff in question were offered further training in 'level of service' - believe it or not, not all of us are complaining to get money off! We would stay at the hotel again but would never dine in their restaurant. Visited The Windmill Clapham on 2017-05-19

Service left a litte to be desired and it could be better value for money but portions were large. I think they need to redefine their idea of a pie though as i was little disappointed that the one i had only had a pasrty top...not really a pie in my book...having said that pub was busy and in good location.

A return visit to the Windmill for Sunday lunch with friends (and babies) after not having visited for almost a year. Still has great atmosphere however we were made to feel rushed into ordering each course, and the food (various roasts) when it arrived was overpriced for what we received (quality and quantity). Sadly because of this we're unlikely to visit again. Visited The Windmill Clapham on 2017-05-14

The manager Lianne was excellent in helping me set up​ my bday party. I was able to bring my own cake and leave it with them the day prior which really helped not to worry about it on the day. Monique was also excellent, and the two lovely ladies that brought the cake were so sweet singing "happy bday" :-) The food was excellent and temperature and ambience was lovely. Thank you!

Went few weeks ago & had a lovely Sunday roast , so decided to go back for a family birthday lunch on Shnday. Setting is beautiful inside & out & my dad, who used to go there years ago, was so happy they still do Youngs beer and it tasted the same ✅....Food was a huge disappointment though! Couldn't get s knife through the beef & Yorkshire puddings were 'tough' aswell !!! On a positive , they did replace the meals & included a slight discount on the whole bill ...but can't help feel slightly disappointed especially as it was a birthday celebration !...

My family had Sunday lunch at the Windmill. Fab pub, lovely surroundings and a delicious lunch, with prompt service. It is dog friendly and our pooch went home with a doggy bag of pork, from a generous meal that we could not finish! Many thanks, Carolyn Visited The Windmill Clapham on 2017-05-06
