I love it here, this week we've been twice in one week 😱 everything i've ever had off the menu has been delicious, food comes in a decent amount of time, staff are friendly and great desserts. Decent price too. Definitely worth a visit.

We didn't have any food but from what I saw I was quite impressed with the place. Teas were generous, coffees were fine and service was good. Would like to go back and try food.

In 2016, the pub underwent an extensive refurbishment and now offers, what we believe to be the finest dining experience available in the area. Careful attention was given to retain the original characteristics of the building but still providing a contemporary feel inside showcasing an open fire, cosy en-suite accommodation rooms, outside beer garden in the lovely countryside area of Belmont Village. The country pub has added a new menu complimented with Gastro pub specials, a mouth-watering ice-cream parlour accompanied with freshly made desserts that is served throughout the year. For the drinkers, the pubs offers a vast array of premium spirits, selected fine wines and world beers to quench all taste buds.
