With the new year out of the way and 2013 well underway, spring is almost upon us – it might not feel like it, with sub-zero temperatures and snow outstaying its welcome well into March, but we promise the warmer weather is nearly here.
With that in mind, the Fairways Restaurant is the perfect place for springtime dining. With a quiet and luxurious restaurant located between Birmingham and Coventry, and stunning views of the

Business conferences and events are all about creating the right impression – whether it’s to your fellow colleagues and employees, or to outside investors and business partners. While presentations, speeches and events are all really important, if the wrong impression is created or the atmosphere is not quite right, then no-one will be engaged – and the conference won’t be much of a success.
People often overlook just how important a venue can be to creating the perfect business event, but careful consideration needs to be taken to ensure the venue you choose suits all of your needs perfectly. Here are some venue aspects to consider before booking:
1. Where Is The Venue Located?
Location is incredibly key to any successful business conference or event – if anyone has difficulty getting to the venue, has to travel too far a distance or would simply be unable to get there then you’re not off to a good start. It’s best to choose a venue which has strong links to main roads and motorways, as well as airports for anyone who might be coming in from overseas.
With great M6, A45, NEC, train station and Birmingham International Airport connections our conferencing facilities here at the Windmill Village Hotel are ideally situated so that no matter where people might be travelling from and how they’re getting there, they’ll find access to our site incredibly simple.
2. How Big Are The Rooms & Suites?
This is also really vital – some hotels and venues that offer conferencing facilities have a strictly limited selection of rooms and suites available, leaving you having to either make compromises on your event or cut back on who will be able to attend to fit into smaller rooms.
Similarly, there’s no point in having to make do with a suite or room that’s simply far too large for the kind of conference or event you’re looking to put on – it creates entirely the wrong atmosphere and will blow a significant portion of your budget completely unnecessarily.
Choosing a venue, like the Windmill Village, with a variety of different rooms and suits from small conferencing rooms to large and extravagant event suites will give you the ideal level of choice so you can hold your event in a room that suites it perfectly and will be in line with your budget.
3. What Facilities Are Available On Site?
If a conference is scheduled to take several hours, or an event that perhaps runs over several days, then impeccable facilities are an absolute necessity. With everything from small refreshments, and buffets to banquets and hotel accommodation, we’ve got everything to ensure a flawless business event as well as positive impressions all round; conferences and events are not just about presentation, they’re about hospitality too.

Spring is here! Well, almost. Temperatures have been hovering around the double figure mark, and the sunshine has definitely been making something of a more regular appearance in recent weeks. With the weather changing, so does your food choices for eating out – instead of needing hot, heart-warming home classics to stop you from freezing in the winter weather, the sunshine and warmth tends to lighter, fresher and cooler menu choices.
Here at the Cellar Bar, we have a great selection of simple, great, tasty food that’ll really help you get in the mood for spring – and if the weather takes a turn for the worse, then don’t worry as our selection of tasty bar classics will have you covered.
Great Light Menu Options
Our menu features a great selection of small starters, light bites and salads to keep your dining options nice and light for the warmer spring weather. Perfect for grabbing something quick before heading back outside to enjoy the warmth of spring, our range of classic, simple sandwiches include tuna mayo, home cooked home, our classic Windmill club, and a sumptuous mature cheddar cheese.
Fancy a salad? Why not try our classic Caesar salad, or our traditional Greek salad for a taste of the Mediterranean to go with the warmer weather.
Tasty Classics & Favourites
If light bites aren’t your thing, and you want something bigger and meatier to get your teeth stuck into this spring then our range of bar and grill classics will keep you satisfied with familiar food that you know you’ll love.
We have a range of burgers including our thick 6oz beef burger and chicken breast burger, all served with chunky chips and salad with the option to add mature cheddar cheese or bacon if you’re feeling particularly famished. Feeling extra hungry? Why not tackle our homemade fish and chips, 8 and 10oz steaks or honey roast ham for some bar classics with a bit more extra substance to them.
However you like your food in the spring, whether it’s light and fresh or big and substantial, you’ll love our menu options here at the Cellar Bar. We’re ideally located close to the NEC, between Birmingham and Coventry so finding us is easy. Booking a table is equally simple – just call us today on 02476 404 040 to make your reservation.
