Great place for a pint of real ale or a glass of wine!

There has never been a better place to enjoy a pint of Real Ale than in a traditional British country pub – which is why the Five Bells in the village of Edenham always keeps three real ales on tap. Our house bitter is Old Speckled Hen whilst our other two pumps serve a constantly changing selection of local guest ales to ensure that there is always something new one to try. We offer a broad selection of draught lagers, bitters and ciders (including Aspall’s on tap) as well as draught Guinness. There is a broad wine menu offering a selection of reds, whites, rose and sparkling wines to enjoy by the glass or to compliment our cuisine.

Everyone is welcome at the Five Bells, families, ramblers, cyclists and passers by and we have a dog friendly policy in the front bar for our four legged friends. With the location being in the heart of the Lincolnshire countryside why not park at the pub and have a coffee in the morning before taking a stroll around the picturesque area before heading back for a bite to eat at lunchtime?

With a cheery welcome from our bar staff, you can be sure to enjoy your drink at the Five Bells. With two roaring log fires there is always a calm, relaxed and friendly atmosphere, perfect for chatting with friends or reading a good book.

The early history behind the Five Bells at Edenham is largely unknown. If anyone has any extra information surrounding the pub’s history please come in and tell us or contact us, we would love to hear your stories!

Here is a selection of the history we have found so far:

The pub was built towards the end of the 19th century circa 1890 although it is not clear if it was a licensed premises or not. Around 1905 the building was renovated, during which the building gained its mullion stone windows and front door arch which were adopted from local Scottlethorpe Manor which was pulled down around the same time. There was also a railway behind the pub which ran to Rippingale which is believed to have served the Ancaster Estates. The connection of this to the pub however is unclear.

In 1944 the Edenham Farmers Discussion Group (formed by the War Agricultural Executive Committee) held their first meeting in the pub to discuss methods of growing more produce in post war Britain. Apparently there was a very large membership, helped along by the provision of free petrol coupons to members, who it is claimed came four in a car to maximise the value! The committee gathered a real following and proved a worthwhile social event for thirsty farmers. The group still meets today and is now one of the last remaining in the country.
