The Old Windmill

Chelmsford

Bookings for up to 6 people and 'the bell' ringing an hour earlier

Following the latest government update, we are currently only able to accept bookings for up to 6 people (who can be from multiple households) and we’ll need to ensure you’re fed and watered by 10pm. Customers are also required to wear masks, when not seated at their tables.

With ‘the bell’ being rung an hour earlier, if you fancy a tipple to take home, we’ll be offering some ‘last order’ drinks for you to enjoy at home.

Thank you for helping us all play our part in keeping everyone safe.

Welcome

The Old Windmill has been serving food and ale to locals since at least 1799, we came across it in 2011 and right from the off we fell in love with the character and feel of the pub, and have taken great pains to preserve and enhance the atmosphere of the Windmill.

Wood fires, flagstone floors and oak beams abound, and we've carefully returned the Old Windmill to its roots as a classic English country pub, with the bar at the heart of the building. Although it's not for us to say, we think our pub is an absolute gem.

Menus

Our passion lies in finding quality fresh ingredients and preparing, cooking and presenting them in a modern but unpretentious way. Our menus have a spine of classic British dishes complemented by more exotic influences from other parts of the world. We upload them to our web site each day before 12 noon so that you may peruse them at your leisure.
