The Old Windmill

Chelmsford

Our doors are now open!

We're delighted to be able to say we can now welcome those from 2 households or groups of up to 6 people from mixed households (including children), into the pub at long last.

Just to reassure you, we still have all the same safety measures in place, and not that any of us go anywhere without a face covering these days, but just a reminder to wear yours when you’re not seated at the table. And, just to let you know, we’ll be happily accepting and issuing meal tickets again, (collect 6 and receive a main course up to £12). Don’t worry if you have tickets with a November 2020 expiry on, we’ll happily extend these until November 2021, just dust them off and bring them along.

We are so looking forward to seeing you, come rain or shine.

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.
