There has been a pub at Windmill Hill for around 200 years. The owners, Chris and Janet Slow, are celebrating their 12th year and in that time have built up a reputation for very good food and drink in a warm and friendly atmosphere. The pub is run in a relaxed, informal manner allowing you to enjoy a drink, some food or celebrate a special occasion in the Barn, a separate venue behind the Square and Compass.
Set behind the Square & Compass in it's own spacious gardens, the Barn has fast become a popular venue for all manner of occasions. Full of rustic charm with heavy wooden tables, chairs and careful lighting, it is decorated with a rural theme. The Barn can hold up to 250 people.
The informal atmosphere that gives the pub it's special charm extends to the Barn, allowing you to relax during your special occasion knowing that every detail has been planned.
The Barn's rustic appearance belies modern facilities. There is a dance area and stage with a powerful sound system and lighting set up. There is also a fully licensed bar, modern toilets and disabled access in all areas. The Barn has a civil licence for weddings, with the large gardens surrounded by fields making a truly beautiful setting.
The Barn is only 5 minutes from Junction 25 of the M5 and 5 minutes from the A303 at Ilminster. Although set in pleasant rural surroundings, the Barn is easily accessible. Full facilities are available for business meetings, exhibitions and corporate events.
