While this is only an image, it could quickly become a reality if you choose to dine with us here at the Cellar Bar; because while we boast fine views and an intimate environment for a relaxed eating out experience, it is our winning menu which sets us apart from our competitors.

Brunch Menu

If you’ve decided to head out for a mid-morning snack, we can accommodate by offering you a breakfast sandwich or bap filled with grilled back bacon.

Our favourite is the Classic Windmill Club, which is jammed-packed with chicken, bacon, tomato, avocado mayo and lettuce served on toasted bread. If this doesn’t get you salivating at the very thought, pop in and see the other sandwiches, baguettes and salad options available.

Fine Dining

With brunch and lunch dishes available, you could be forgiven for thinking that’s all the food we do; but no, we also offer starters, mains and deserts for the ultimate dining experience. To check out the dishes currently on our menu go to our website to see for yourself the menu we have on offer.
