Put Your Feet Up This Weekend With The Fairways Restaurant

After a long hard week we all, in our own way, turn to our home comforts. Whether it’s a simple cup of tea and a digestive biscuit by the fire, or slaving away in the kitchen to create a perfect home cooked Sunday roast, we all love the classics.

But after a week at work, spending your last day off before the week starts again confined to the kitchen isn’t exactly a way to relax. Thanks to our fantastic Sunday lunch and carvery options here at Fairways, you can well and truly enjoy your weekend with nothing to do but sit back and enjoy the hard work of our superb team of chefs.

Delicious Sunday Lunch Carvery

Choice is vital to Sunday lunch – whether you want the classic beef roast, want to try something a bit different with some roast pork or want to sample our fantastic vegetarian options, then our varied menu can offer you your ideal Sunday lunch.

From fantastic set menu options to delicious hot and fresh carveries, you’ll find everything you could want for that ‘home from home’ perfection. Our experienced and well-travelled chef, Mick Lennon, has worked across the globe and has even been personal chef to King Hussein of Jordan – your Sunday roast is in safe hands at the Fairways Restaurant.

Perfect Location

Located close to Solihull and between Birmingham and Coventry, Fairways is in the perfect location for local residents and passing visitors alike to enjoy our high quality cuisine and Sunday roast classics.

We are ideally situated if you’ve visited an event at the NEC in Birmingham or have spent the day shopping at Touchwood in Solihull, and want some exceptional food to round off your day; don’t settle for cold sausage rolls or greasy chips, enjoy a quality meal and a great dining experience.

If you fancy truly relaxing this Sunday, and only worrying about eating our outstanding food rather than having to prepare and serve it as well, then check out our online menu. Booking a table could not be simpler – just call 02476 404040 to speak to our friendly team.

Three Reasons to Spend an Evening at the Cellar Bar

One good thing to come out of us all tightening our belts in recent years, has been a renewed appreciation for what there is to enjoy on our own doorsteps. We’ve come to appreciate that we can enjoy a weekend away  without flying a million miles.

Nestled in the heart of the country, couched by Coventry and Birmingham, the Windmill Village hotel provides such a Launchpad to a weekend away that’s closer to home. The hotel is perfectly placed for visits to any of the surrounding attractions including the myriad shows and events to be found at the NEC throughout the year.

It’s not just about going out and about though. If you’re staying at the Windmill Village Hotel, or are just looking for a classy place to enjoy some good company: there are plenty of good reasons to spend an evening relaxing at their own Cellar Bar.

Here are just three of them:


The Cellar Bar has been newly refurbished as the restaurant for the Windmill Village. It offers a relaxed environment in which to enjoy high quality food and drinks. The newly refurbished interior offers a pleasing mix of traditional and contemporary details, offering an air of class without feeling old-fashioned or fussy.


The Cellar Bar offers a wide range of mouth-watering food prepared to the highest standards of quality. Not only that, there is a full cellar keeping the bar stocked with an assortment of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. The talented staff will be happy to serve you any range of wines or cocktails: there will always be something to complement your meal and your mood.


Situated within the Windmill Village hotel, the Cellar Bar shares the hotel’s prime location as place to visit as part of a larger trip. After a hectic day at a big NEC show, why not head to the cellar bar for a relaxing drink and meal, and admire the view of the golf course in the warm, friendly atmosphere of the bar?

Whatever your plans, the Cellar Bar provides an ideal place to visit for a nice relaxing evening of good food, good drink and a good time.

Our favourite is the Classic Windmill Club, which is jammed-packed with chicken, bacon, tomato, avocado mayo and lettuce served on toasted bread.
