The Windmill Restaurant is located on the ground floor of the CBeebies Land Hotel, through the Musical Meadow. Set out in three highly themed sections, The Library, The Castle, and the central section, the restaurant features plenty for little ones to look at and hold their attention.
Dinner is served between 4.30pm and 8.30pm, earlier than in the other hotels’ restaurants in order to cater to little ones’ appetites.
Each table is set up to include both adults’ and children’s place settings so that young guests feel part of the experience right from the moment they walk in and sit down. At the centre of the restaurant sits a giant windmill, below which is the salad bar where guests can help themselves whilst they wait to a range of healthy snacks, something which helps to keep younger guests happy whilst they wait for their main meal. Children can even design their own pizza using a sheet and stickers given to them when they enter the restaurant, all they need to do is create their design and hand it to the chef who will then re-create it.
Breakfast, which is included in the price of all hotel packages, is served between 7.00am and 9.30am, where guests can help themselves to a number of different cereals, fresh fruit, yogurts or even a cooked breakfast.
The focus of the menu is very much on healthy eating, with children encouraged to make positive choices. All items on the menu are available in three different sizes – ‘Little Guest’, ‘Grown Up’ and ‘Family Share’.
