Drive around a bend on the Riddoch Highway and the Bellum appears like an apparition; surrounded by lush farmland, 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 bottle shop, open fire, sunken cellar and rustic charm.
Their fresh summer menu includes seafood, pork belly, beef ribs, pasta and weekly specials posted to the Bellum’s Facebook page.
Their wine selection has been cherry-picked to support local vineyards, and they sell “Sink Hole” gin. They hold summer parties in the outdoor courtyard, with live music and wood fired pizza. It’s the perfect place to relax on a warm night.
Accommodation: 3 rooms and free pub camping for self-contained travellers.
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!
