Called in with five friends after reading other reviews. Had to wait best part of an hour for food, had, however been warned of slight delay. Whilst waiting another customer sent his pie back. When food arrived it was only average. Gammon, chips etc very dry, looked like it had been under the lamps a while. Did not enjoy at... More

My wife and I stayed at the Blue bell inn on the 10th and 11th of October. The inn is a beautiful old pub in a spectacular location. The pub is wonderful, the staff are wonderful, the food is unbelievably good and the portions immense. Another factor in the Blue bell's favour is dogs are allowed in the bar and... More

After a walk we arrived at the pub for a drink and meal. As we had the dog with us we went to the beer garden to find no chairs or tables. So I went inside and asked politely if we could bring the dog in as there were no chairs or tables outside to which I received an abrupt... More

We now visit the Dales every year and this Pub is a MUST visit. The welcome you receive is fantastic, our dogs are made to feel very welcome and the food is of exceptional quality, home cooked and plentiful. The beers are well kept and the log burner in the Snug makes for a fantastic sit down and chill out.... More

Absolutely love this pub - the food is top notch and keeps me going back here over and over again. I've been to the other pubs in the village but this one by far is the best. The landlord is a top character who likes to have a natter too - very knowledgeable about the local area. Would highly recommend... More

We ate here one night after our stay at Kettlewell. I thought it was more down the road of quantity over quality! The vegetables that were served weren't cooked at all and I like it crunchy! The fish pie looked lovely but was actually lacking in the main ingredient, fish! But overall okay and palatable. There beer is very good... More

Had some friends over from Australia, and they thought it was full of character and charm,we only had a few drinks, but the whole atmosphere of the place blew them away, and the dogs and there owners also added to the relaxed feeling.

Just returned from a week's walking in Kettlewell, where we stayed in a small cottage. There are three pubs in the village all serving good food but we definitely preferred the Bluebell as it always seemed to be busy with local people (which we think is a good sign). It's very welcoming, not at all pretentious, which one of the... More
