Four of us had the pleasure of having dinner last night at the Belfry Country Inn. The service was impeccable - service with a smile by Clive! The food was excellent, reasonably priced and very good portions. We loved the decor and the atmosphere also. We will be back!

I've attended a few weddings in the Belfray Country Inn and eaten in the restaurant on Mothers Day and can honestly say the service and food was top quality. The place is run like a tight ship, with each table at the wedding having its own buzzer to summon a waiter/waitress. You will want for nothing at a function here.... More
