The Five Bells public house is a 17th century building which has undergone a full interior refurbishment whilst aiming to keep the traditional village pub atmosphere with a gas fire and friendly, welcoming staff.
The Five Bells is situated in the delightfully peaceful village of Eastry and is surrounded by an attractive mix of period houses. There are several village shops and a post office just a few minutes walk away, as well as the beautiful church of St Mary the Blessed Virgin of which parts date back to the early 12th century.
They are located close to the historic Cinque port of Sandwich and the local golf courses – Royal St Georges, Prince’s and Royal Cinque Ports, and are only a 20 minute drive from the port of Dover making us an ideal resting place before onward journeys to the continent.
Their are several walking and cycling routes in the area and with sites of local interest such as the castles at Dover, Deal and Walmer, and the Cathedral city of Canterbury all within a 30 minute drive, they are the perfect location for those wishing to explore the beauty of South East Kent.
The pub itself has two separate areas, the main bar serving real ale and fine wine and the dining room, a quiet space for good conversation and excellent home-cooked food served daily between 12pm and 8.30pm. There is also a beer garden with children’s play area and in the summer it is used by their Petanque team and for barbecues. In addition, one of the hidden features is a sports bar offering darts, pool and a big screen. This room also doubles as a function room, a superb venue for family celebrations or for companies looking for somewhere to hold business meetings and conferences.
There are three bed and breakfast rooms above the pub, recently refurbished all with tea and coffee facilities, television and WiFi. There are two travel cots available, so if you need to book a cot, please be sure to ask beforehand.
