The Bellum Hotel


Drive around a bend on the Riddoch Highway and the Bellum appears like an apparition; surrounded by lush farmland, with the Mt Schank volcanic crater its backdrop.

The Bellum offers a taste of the country: great food, terrific hospitality from friendly staff and locals, cold beer and wine, take away meals and a great bottle shop, an open fire, a sunken cellar and rustic charm. We’re only 12km south of Mount Gambier

Our warm winter menu includes spring rolls, lamb shanks, pork belly, scotch fillet, fish and chips, lasagna, schnitzels, house made desserts and weekly specials posted to our Facebook page @bellumhotel

Our wine selection has been cherry-picked to support local vineyards, and we sell “Sink Hole” gin. We hold summer parties on the outdoor terrace and beer garden, with live music. It’s the perfect place to relax on a warm night.

Accommodation: 3 rooms and free pub camping for self-contained RV travellers. Please call ahead and book in at the front bar on arrival.

Voted Best Pub on the Limestone Coast, the Bellum offers an honesty and authenticity that’s welcoming and unique.

A must stop destination; a destination in itself!
