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

We had a great welcome and so did our two dogs. The food was excellent and freshly cooked. The meat and potato pie was amazing. A lovely stop off after a day in the Dales and all the more welcoming to be able to eat at a table with the dogs sat beside us.

Visited the pub to escape the rain whilst at the Kettlewell scarecrow festival. Had a lovely meal of two sandwiches and a side order of chips. Meal was very good - the ingredients are obviously of a good quality. Our dog was warmly welcomed even though she was dripping wet! Found it to be a very friendly pub - they... More

Seven girls booked into The Blue Bell for a hen night on Saturday night after a long day out. We were welcomed and shown to our rooms. To get us all in they had actually given us a staff bedroom to accomdate all of us. We had the best night out. The food was fabulous, the service exceptional, and the... More

This pub is probably the best in what is a lovely town. We went here a couple of times during our stay in Kettlewell. The welcome from the staff was warm and friendly. The choice of drinks was good especially for real ale fans. The menu has a good selection and the food was very good. Which all why we... More

Called in for an evening meal after a days fishing on the river Wharfe. I have been before and surprisingly the landlord recognised me which makes you even more welcome. As usual I had the house special meat and potato pie which is well worth waiting for. Highly recommended. Very busy pub especially during the scarecrow festival.

Firstly there are some bad points about this inn. For the price the rooms are small and old fashioned, the shower was pretty disappointing and the bed not great but then I guess this is what you pay for a room in a lovely village in what is arguably one of the nicest parts of the dales. On the upside... More

Just had the Meat and Potato pie,absolutely gorgeous,one of the best pie's i have had in recent times,as where the copious amounts of "Black Gold" ale that was consumed.If you should bring a dog,which are welcome,a little doggy treat is on hand.Good Value for money,in a great location.
