From Field to Flagon

Welcome to our multi-award-winning microbrewery that is housed in a renovated sawmill on a heritage site in Heckington, rural Lincolnshire.
We share our site with the UK’s only eight-sailed tower windmill that’s still standing and has its sails intact.

Our Core Range

Brewed using East Anglian barley and British hops wherever possible, our range comprises six all year-round beers that are complemented by our occasional beers whose styles reflect the seasons. Inspired by our site and surroundings, our beer names include Windy Miller, Fenman, King John’s Jewels and Rolling Stone that was created in partnership with Heckington Windmill who set aside stones for milling the barley used to brew the beer (until the windmill broke!).

We specialise in cask and bottle-conditioned beers in a range of styles from traditional and modern to suit all tastes.

Happy Customers

“Outdoor and under cover seating available. There were a choice of 7 ales, so something for everyone. The beers are very reasonably priced. It’s definitely worth a visit.”

John L

“First time ever in the Windmill Brewery. Lovely. Situated under the only working 8 sail windmill in England. Been coming to the village for decades but never come here. Lovely staff, very friendly locals and great beer. Pint of Fenman, which is pure nectar.”

Ally Mentrie

“Really fab place to spend a sunny afternoon. Lovely beer garden, good range of beers on tap, good food too, and very convenient for arriving by train as the station is opposite”

Rosamund Bowler

“Lovely brewery and cafe on site of the only 8 sail windmill in England. Good atmosphere and friendly staff. Most importantly a great range of real ales to drink in or take away.”
