Relaxing Bar to Suit Everyone’s Tastes

Sometimes, restaurants or bars can restrict guests in what they are hoping to get out of the experience, as they can definably be for drinking with friends, eating with a loved one or having a relaxed cup of coffee for lunch. However here at Cellar Bar inside the Windmill Village Hotel and with our sumptuous, traditional surroundings, our bar and adjoining restaurant can suit anyone’s tastes and give you whatever you are hoping for.

The Cellar Bar provides the best for all occasions, as our warm, comfortable restaurant can provide the intimate setting for a delicious evening meal with a menu that covers everything from mouth-watering steaks to health-conscious, but just-as-delicious salads. Not only are we suited to being the setting for a memorable night out, but are also perfect for a Sunday lunch with family or friends to give you a break from the heat of the kitchen and to treat everyone eating.

With so many restaurants, the experience ends once the plates are cleared away and the last drop is drank, but not with us. After you’re stuffed full of all the dessert you can handle, you have the Cellar Bar benefit of having a homely lounge area complete with plush sofas, plasma screens and stunning views to fall back into and let your food go down, while keeping the day going with another glass of wine, cocktail or beer.

As we are situated in the cellar of one of the most notable hotels in Birmingham, the Windmill Village, which itself is located ideally between Coventry, Birmingham and close to Solihull, this makes us the perfect bar Solihull to visit for drinks before or after heading out as part of your stay at the hotel. Whatever your personal tastes and plans, come to the Cellar Bar for a memorable experience.
