Best Pub Carvery I have found in Chard & Crewkerne
I see that George also left a review below of our recent Carvery experience at the Windwhistle Inn in Somerset. I had a lovely Sunday Lunch at their great value carvery which I must say was superb. I met another couple and their family there and together we had a great time in the pubs magnificent child friendly garden. Both myself and George promised that we should place a review to show our appreciation. In addition I wanted to thank George and Jane for their great company.
A Pub to be recommended especially since being taken over by www.QualityPubFood.co.uk

Windwhistle Inn in Chard www.QualityPubFood.co.uk
We recently visited one of the best pubs in chard, namely the Windwhistle Inn, whose internet site www.QualityPubFood.co.uk first attracted our attention. To our great satisfaction, we had a fantastic Sunday Carvery which offered great service, value for money and a really authentic tasty sunday lunch. I take my hat off to the staff and congratulate them on running one of the best Pubs in the area of Chard and Crewkerene. I really can recommend this pub with its wonderful Garden, Fab Views and excellent quality pub food.
Thanks again

What a fantastic venue for our daughters wedding. The staff and service couldn't have been better. They made the day very special. The views from the garden and car park are absolutely stunning. Thankyou to all concerned

Great place to eat
I can strongly recommend the Windwhistle Inn near Cricket St Thomas. I have been going there for some time now and have held many family celebrations there. The food is always good, the staff are friendly and courteous and we are always made welcome.

Fantastic food
I have been using this pub for a couple of years now for there Sunday lunches and could not find a better place. The food is the best I've ever had. Weekdays the restaurant is great too. Friendly staff too.
Can't understand the complaints on here.

family xmas party
We had a wonderful meal at the Windwhistle this weekend for a party of 14 , the food was great, the service was great and the atmosphere was perfect for a traditional English country pub, which is very difficult to find these days. Thank you to sally and the team.

I have been using the Windwhistle Inn for around 10 years, it started off quite infrequently then about 5 years ago something dramatic happened.
Changes occured and improvements were made, slowly at first and a momentum grew and grew until the present day. Today I would challenge anyone to visit this truly beautiful Inn and not be facinated by the transformation both inside and out, this transformation came about because of a very caring country loving lady called Sally. This new landlady has put her heart and soul
into making the Inn what it is today.
I find myself now visiting 3or 4 times a week and I constantly hear people praising the views out side,the quaintness inside and a friendliness second to none. I would recommend the Inn to anyone especially lovers of quality
freshly cooked food with a wonderfull varied menu.

meal on r way home
The service we recieved yesterday was the worse i have exprienced in a long time . The barman was useles he told us it wasnt busy food orders would be quick which was ideal for me as i had my elderly parents with me & was on my way to yeovil hospital to visit my very poorly gran ,after waiting 30 mins i approached a very helpfull waitress ( who explained the bar man never enters the kitchen so doesnt have a clue how long a wait is for food orders ever) any way i meals arrived shortly after this or should i say 3 out of 4 meals arrived mine took a further 10 mins. I would just like to say a big thank you to the waitress who delt with us in the end,even when we went to pay the bill there was no apology from the bar man he wasnt even that keen on takin our money.I certainly wont be holding my 40th there like i planned & it will be a long time before we visit again & wont be recomending it to any of our family or friends .

Unfriendly and has gone downhill
This used to be a great place to eat. However, we visited recently and the staff were unfriendly and unhelpful. We were told they do not have highchairs because of health and safety reasons. It used to be a family friendly place with very good food, but this is sadly no longer the case. The menu was also not as exciting as before.

Best Pub Around!
I cannot believe anyone would have a bad word to say about the food. Myself and family have visted the Windwhistle numerous times this year and everytime the food has been superb. I believe there are new people running it and a new head chef, absolutely lovely people couldn't of had better service. I will go on to recomend the food to everyone and will definitely be going back for more.

Bad experience
I recent went to the Windwhistler Inn with a group of 19 for a 60th party, my husband and I drove 180 miles to attend this party and the whole meal from starter through to pudding was awful. We had burnt food, under cooked food and even food that we didn't order. They ruined the birthday party.
