The Half Moon Inn Belchamp St Paul

The Half Moon Inn is the quintessential historical English Pub, a stunning thatched tavern overlooking Belchamp St Paul village green. Hanging baskets, thatched roof, leaded windows, low beams and real log fire - it simply doesn't get more English country than this.

Built in the early 16th century, most of the original features of the pub have been lovingly maintained and the pub oozes history. The Half Moon has been at the centre of Belchamp St Paul village activity for more than four hundred years.

Dave, Katrina and the team would like to extend a warm welcome to The Half Moon.

With a combined experience of 22 years in the pub trade we are delighted to have moved to Belchamp St Paul. All our food is freshly made and locally sourced where possible. We have an ever changing seasonal menu that we would love you to try. We also keep local and national real ales to the highest standard.
