Description: The Bellhouse an idyllic country restaurant and pub located in the quaint village of 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. Our fine selection of beers, traditional real ales and extensive wine list can all be enjoyed within our grounds, dining al-fresco on our large patio or simply cosy beside our open fires, whichever your preference you will be following in the footsteps of your Royal Heritage.At the heart of our pub is a team of highly experienced chef’s and staff who are all passionate about food. The style of our food is traditional British, influenced from all that is available locally and seasonal. The meat we use is of the highest quality, our roasted leg & loin of pork is from our Scott’s Hall farm in Canewdon which has proved to be equally as popular as the succulent Dedham Vale roasted rib of beef on a Sunday.All of our cured meats and smoked products are produced in house by our chefs. Fine mouth-watering examples include our house hot smoked salmon with pea puree confit cherry tomatoes and soft duck yoke and our house smoked wood pigeon salad served with butter roasted hazel nuts and toasted walnuts. We are equally passionate about using seasonal vegetables. Our chef’s take a lot of pride in their on-site herb garden. Other fresh ingredients arrive daily, some of our most exciting seasonal produce can be experienced on our daily specials board. A great deal of time is taken in preparation for your arrival and every meal is cooked for you to order.We are very conscious of our countries depleting fish stocks and try to utilize more sustainable species, as specials, which we find can be more flavoursome and offer a much greater variety.At the Bellhouse we are proud to support British farming. We hope you share our ethos of supporting local producers and suppliers and share our passion for Great British Food

My family of 21 which included 5 under 10 year olds had a wonderful meal on Boxing Day. The choice of food was brilliant, and we all chose different. Each courses was served up at the same time, which was great considering the size of our party. The food was fresh, nicely cooked and well presented.
The staff were friendly, professional, polite and helpful.
We would definately use the bellhouse for a celebration again.

Thanks to Paul and all the staff at the Bellhouse for the very good buffet you put on for us following Mum's funeral. We had a large comfy room all to ourselves, lots to eat, really good and fresh and much enjoyed by all our family and friends. There is plenty of parking - useful with elderly relatives. The atmosphere was warm and friendly, just what you need after a sad occasion. Would not hesitate to recommend you.

Thanks to the Bellhouse for providing an excellent venue for our Mother's funeral buffet. We had plenty of room, food was fresh, tasty and plentiful, staff helpful and prompt. The Bell house is an attractive pub, plenty of parking and very warm and cosy. We were able to relax and talk to family and friends after a sad event. Thanks to the helpful manager Paul. We are very glad we chose you, and will certainly be back when we are in the area.

I frequently visit The Bellhouse, and thought it was about time I wrote a review. Our family love coming here, the food is always well presented and most importantly delicious. The menu changes throughout the year, so it's never the same old thing. The set menu is such great value for money too. The staff are always friendly and having a toddler some places aren't that accommodating. The Bellhouse is a place we always return to due to never having a less than average meal there.. So if your after great pub food with an elegant touch for all the family go here!!!!
