There are few traditional freehouse pubs around that have retained their social country atmosphere. Over the years we hope at Ye Olde Windmill we have maintained the 'olde' style english country pub welcome.

Ye Olde WindmillYe Olde Windmill is a 400 year old country pub and restaurant situated at the pinnicale of Gentleshaw Common. we have a disused windmill situated by our Crown Green Bowling Green in the gardens.
