This was a midweek family outing to this listed pub/restaurant. The menu was wide and varied, although I was hoping to see the seafood chowder, which is my “go to” when we go to The Peterboat - run by the same company. Instead three of us had fish and chips which was beautifully done, very generous portions. The staff the friendly and very attentive at all times. Something I really liked was the bar offered beers by The Leigh Brewery Company and St George’s Brewery from Gt Wakering - that is a great way to support local companies. Oh, but one final thing - could we have better signposts at the entrance and exit to the car park? Great!

Just had Sunday lunch with mum at The Bellhouse. The food was excellent and the portions are generous. The service was also top notch. We'll definitely be going back again.

Being walking distance from our home we have been eating at The Bellhouse for many years. This week we celebrated my husbands birthday by having a family meal together. On the menu the 16oz Tomahawk Pork had been reintroduced so my daughters and husband were all looking forward to eating this.
We had to ring to confirm our booking time and during the call back we asked if the young lady we were talking to could reserve three chops for us.
Our lovely waiter Geoff was explaining what was not available from the menu and this included the Pork! When we explained we had asked if three could be reserved for us he went off to check and lo and behold they were there awaiting our order! We must pass our thanks to the member of staff who took our request seriously. It made our evening.
Will obviously return again!

We visited at lunch time. Pie of the day was amazing as was all of the food we ordered. Such large portions too. The food isn't cheap but you get what you pay for. Waitress Lynn was so friendly and helpful. It was our first visit but we will certainly be back!

Excellent meal. Seabass fillets.Served by Geoff. He always goes that extra mile to make us feel welcome. After dinner he found us a nice table on the terrace to have a couple of after dinner drinks.
