Superb pub, brill food, room was a great size, had everything I needed and great bathroom, fully loaded. This is a must for a quiet weekend, the couple who owned it made us feel very welcome. Breakfast was vast, and nothing was too much trouble.

Went here for Xmas lunch and a couple of meals while staying in Kettlewell. Lovely warm welcome from the hosts, Dave the landlord especially accommodating, even the dog got fed. The steak pie was the best we have ever eaten. Highly recommended. Lovely pub and friendly locals.

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
