A Traditional Country Free House

Ye Olde Windmill

Ye Olde Windmill is a 400 year old country pub and restaurant situated at the pinnicale of Gentleshaw Common.
Around the premises we have framed deeds written in Olde English and artifacts from the origins of the pub.
We also have a disused windmill on our premises which sits just next to our Crown Bowling Green.
