The Bell Tree in downtown Southern Pines draws its inspiration from the taverns of yesteryear. Its name recalls the era when thirsty travelers would ring a bell inside a hollowed tree to signal that they wanted a swig of moonshine. More than only moonshine, the tavern has an extensive drink menu with weekly specials.


Club
The Jefferson Inn
