The Old Windmill

Chelmsford

We will be back with you on Wednesday 2nd December

Following the Government’s announcement, we find ourselves in Tier 2 which means we can happily open our doors again from next Wednesday 2nd December, albeit with a few restrictions, but thank goodness we’re able to welcome you back to the pub!

The new guidelines mean that we’re only able to accept tables of single households inside the pub and up to 6 people from mixed households for those brave enough to sit outside. Also, as much as we wish you could just pop in for a pint, for now, we’re only allowed to serve alcohol when you eat with us. Last orders are at 10pm, so we’ll be ringing bell around 9.45pm and we need to ensure you’re fed, watered and heading safely home by 11pm.

For those that can’t wait till next week and fancy a treat sooner, remember we have a our Click and Collect menu running. Follow this link to find out more and place your order:

Thanks as ever for your support, we look forward to seeing you all soon.

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.
