The Bellhouse is an idyllic country restaurant and pub located in Eastwood. Set in beautiful surroundings, the recently refurbished, family run 15th century Bellhouse steeped in history and charm really is the perfect place to relax and unwind with family and friends. The fine selection of beers, traditional real ales including the house beer Hilda B from George's Brewery and extensive wine list can all be enjoyed within the grounds, dining al-fresco on our large patio or simply cosied beside the open fires. Extensive food menu with most produce coming from local producers and suppliers. The main dining area can be found on the first floor of the building and here you can expect an open fire to be lit in the colder months, wooden beams, elegant furnishings and soft lighting more suitable perhaps for those guests looking for a more formal or intimate evening. The restaurant continues on to the ground floor and nestles perfectly beside the traditional bar area. With its Parquet flooring, open fire and comfortable seating, it is the ideal setting for those diners looking for a brassiere style experience to enjoy with friends and family. The bar area encompasses all styles from traditional ale house through to classic wine bar, resulting in a sophisticated and comfortable drinking establishment, ideal for all ages. With the flag stone flooring, original features and light wooden beams, the Bellhouse stays true to its wonderful historic background of King Henry VIII's hunting lodge, without compromising on style or comfort
