The Bluebell Inn is my local pub. It started doing food only about 18 months ago and I think that they have got the offer exactly right! They deserve a lot of credit for investing in our local community and providing really good food at a price that reflects value for money. Their standard steak & Ale pie, with a... More

A second visit for us after being impressed with our meal there over Christmas after our walk from the Pub around the Idle Valley Nature Reserve, which was also excellent. Again, a good walk followed by some lovely food with time taken to prepare fresh and good tasting meals with some nice cask ales to wash it down. A friendly... More

been quite a few times here. Love the place. The service and food are great. Not over priced and a good choice on the menu. We will certainly be back. If you want my advice give this place a try. You will be regulars like us.

I have been to "the bluebell" a few times now for Sunday lunch, and I can highly recommend it. There is always a friendly welcome when you arrive. The food is outstanding!! Well done to Joanne & Ivor and all their hardworking staff!! See you all again really soon.

I don't think I would ever have found it or gone there if it hadn't been for friends we were visiting who were locals and took us there for dinner. They knew what they were doing as they were regulars and in no time at all I could see exactly why. It's an unpretentious place a proper pub that is... More

We spent a night at the Bluebell this week - a warm and friendly welcome, spacious and comfortable accommodation ( where our hound was welcome too) and a generous and interesting continental breakfast provided in our room. We also enjoyed a delicious meal in the pub, with a varied menu and local produce. We will return and visit this little... More

Joanne and Ivor made us very welcome and the accommodation was excellent. The rooms are of a high quality, well equipped and were spotlessly clean. The location of the Inn is in a quiet village and has only local traffic, great for a good night's sleep. Breakfast was taken in your room and was simple and adequate. As we attended... More

The bluebell recently hosted my cousins wedding. The venue was perfect, the food superb, the staff excellent! Many of the 'grimsby contingent' stayed over at the bluebell too, and were all suitably impressed by the traditional and friendly welcome offered by the staff at the inn. Looking forward to our next visit to Lound!

Spent the day here for a wedding, catered for by the Bluebell Inn. Food was really excellent as was the service, which was friendly and had that personal touch. The landlord and landlady clearly have excellent relationships with the locals. My parents in law stayed at the pub for the weekend and were very happy with the accommodation. Nothing was... More
