"Windwhistle" does evoke a clifftop location, but is name of the local hills. Being on the brow of a range of hills, it does have a panoramic view on a clear day and you can see all the way to Glastonbury Tor & the Bristol Channel. The original building which houses the traditional bar dates from the 17th Century and was once a notorious haunt of smugglers, highwaymen, and cut-throats. It has a romantic ‘Jamaica Inn’ type atmosphere and local folklore has it that if you looked like you had money on you, you would be lured or dragged down into the cellar and your throat slit.
Since then the building has been extended to now include a separate restaurant area for quiet dining, a large bright & airy conservatory where the famous carvery is served and a function room ideal for weddings and other large parties.
All this is set in 5 acres of beautifully maintained gardens with plenty of outdoor seating and loads of space for children (and dogs) to run off their energy after lunch. Both indoor and outdoor games are available for everyone to enjoy.
Weddings We offer bespoke wedding packages tailored to each Bride & Grooms individual day. We can cater for both smaller weddings in our restaurant area and then larger parties of up to 100 seated and 150 standing for buffets.
Both these rooms are also available for business meetings, team building days, funerals, birthday and christenings. A sit down menu, buffets, bbq’s or hog roasts can be arranged. All guests will have access to the gardens as well.
