Dining at Cley Windmill

Dining at Cley Windmill… The Windmill chefs are making quite a name for themselves all over North Norfolk for their cooking. They cook nearly every evening and it is a very convivial affair. Their cooking is predominately old-fashioned home-made English country. Guests dine by candlelight and non-residents are welcomed (subject to availability). Dinner is served at 7.30pm. The cost of the three course dinner is £32.50.
As it is a set menu guests are invited to infom of any dietary requirements or particular likes or dislikes when you are booking so that they can plan accordingly. They encourage you to book dinner as early as possible in order to avoid disappointment as they do get very booked up.

Enjoy pre-dinner drinks by the roaring fire in the circular sitting room, or, in the summer months, why not sit on the lawn, looking out to sea over the reeds and marshes? Guests can arrive from 7.00pm and enjoy the spectacular views from the gallery.
The windmill is fully licenced and there is an extensive selection of wine. There is also an Honesty Bar in the sitting-room and a good choice of soft drinks. Please be aware that the windmill gets very booked up so, to avoid disappointment, you may prefer to book in advance rather than wait until your stay.
