Steeped in original features and charm, The Bellhouse offers the best in classic restaurant dining combined with stylish interiors and a fresh, original menu.
Take in the surrounding scenic garden and woodland area here at The Bellhouse, whether you’re joining us for dinner or drinks. Our venue is the ideal location for special occasions and impromptu gatherings alike, all year round.
In the colder months, our delicious dishes can be enjoyed from the comfort of our elegant restaurant area, featuring classic wooden beams and heartening open fires. A gorgeous setting for an afternoon tea and a glass of bubbly! In the summer, we invite you to dine outside in our large patio area, overlooking the running brook. The Bellhouse also features an outdoor children’s play area, perfect to entertain the little ones on a family outing!
At the heart of our pub is a team of highly experienced chefs who are fanatical about food and proudly support British farming. The meat we use is of the highest quality, whether it’s the ever-popular roasted pork from Scott’s Hall Farm in Canewdon or our succulent Dedham Vale roasted rib of beef on a Sunday. Not to mention our flavourful cured meats and smoked products, which are expertly produced in-house.
We are dedicated to using fresh, seasonal vegetables too. We are conscious of our country’s depleting fish stocks, so we try to utilise more sustainable species where possible, which we find can be more flavoursome and offer a much greater variety.
Your food is lovingly prepared, and every meal is cooked to order. Some of our most exciting seasonal produce can be experienced on our daily specials board, so be sure to take a look at these offers on your visit!
We hope you share our ethos of supporting local producers and suppliers, and share our passion for Great British food.
