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 new winter menu includes crispy fried chicken, lamb shank, pork belly, laksa, barramundi, scotch fillet, schnitzels and burgers. You must try the "Mt Schank burger" - pulled lamb shank with a spicy slaw on a damper bun. Weekly specials are posted to the Bellum's Facebook page @bellumhotel
Their wine selection has been cherry-picked to support local vineyards, and they sell "Sink Hole" gin. Beside the wood fire in the front bar is the perfect place to relax on a cold night.
