Its a Wetherspoons pub set in a magnificent domed grade 2 listed building which was formerly a gentlemans club! High ceilings good atmosphere and good selection of beers. Average pub food but inexpensive.

We operate a small B&B which is well established for over 14 years, The proprietors that run the Windmill Inn are investing in the property and have improved their food, in our opinion. We have no connection with them in any form, either personally or professionally.  I would not hesitate to recommend them to our guests now as it is within walking distance and offers well priced, well cooked food at a good pub standard. On Sunday last, 40 of us from the Village attended a carvery lunch which was first class. There was a selection of four well cooked meats, vegetables and roast potatoes etc. It was great value and I can thoroughly recommend. There were also 25 walkers eating lunch and it was very busy.

There is a lovely walk from the village shop along the longest village green in britain, past some wonderful old houses. Keep going along the road until the canal bridge. cross the canal and make your way back to the village (turn right over the bridge) along the canal towpath. Turn right acroos Frethern canal bridge and return to your car stopping at trader for a reasonably priced lunch. if the weather is good to you can sit outside and if you are really lucky watch a game of cricket on the green.

We found this very nice pub while stopping off in the area with our caravan that serves meals mid day & evenings. This is a very cosy pub with friendly staff, The meals are extremely good value, good helpings & large choice of menu. The one thing we liked was the roast Beef, Lamb, Turkey, all with vegetables as it makes such a lovely change to be able to have a meal without chips. They carry a good range of local brewed Beers/Cider. Friday is Curry Night, Saturday is Steak night. Booking is recommended as we found it very busy both mid day & evenings. We first visited back in March & there where friendly fires burning in parts of the pub.

Excellent quality food & drink, whether it's a lunchtime break or a more extended fine-dining dinner. A new chef has worked wonders and produced a top quality menu which delivers 100%. We visited for a Valentine special - Nice ambiance, professional staff - would highly recommend this Gastro-Pub experience

trader looks like a pub, feels like a pub but the food is more resturant quality - simply amazing. Its strange to find somewhere producing such good food outside Bristol. The staff are welcoming, friendly and polite. The menu is not large as everything is fresh and we were told changes on a regular basis. You get a choice of 4 starters, 4 mains and 4 puddings so there is a risk you might not find something you like. However I had no problems. My wife who is a veggie but usually expects limited choice. There was only one veggie option on starter and main but it was lovely and special (not out of a box like some many other places). We've been there a couple of times - mid week and on Sunday. If dining on a Friday or Saturday it could be expensive but we took up the two courses for £20 offered in the week. Enjoy.

trader pub in Blagdon is a lovely traditional pub serving some typical pub grub. They have a good menu which is on a board as you enter, enough but not too much. The price of a typical meal was around £8-10 but even a steak was good value at £12. The landlord was friendly and service was very good. The food was lovely, a hearty portion and you had a choice of salad or veg. Which every one you decided on, it was great as very different to normal. The salad is in fact several small different salads - great to see some vision and not just plain lettuce and tomato. I was driving so couldn't taste the beers - I think it was Butcombe and Doom Bar on tap. Will be back. Two main course choices for veggies - pasta and a cranberry and chestnit wellington. Looking forward to the return visit.

I am a regular visitor to this pub and always find the main staff to be typically pub like in their friendliness. A good place to be a regular!
