Visited for the first time in some 25 years but went on a recommendation. Greeting friendly although did have to ask to be shown to our table. Dining area very pleasant indeed with proper napkins and lit candles and fresh flowers on table. The evening menu was somewhat disappointing as there was nothing that really grabbed any of us. Very... More

We recently dined at the Bluebell and while the waitress service was excellent the charge of full price for a small child's meal was ridiculous. During the later stages of the meal we were asked to move as others wanted the table. This had not been mentioned when booking or on our arrival.This ended our evening abruptly which was a... More

Went for an evening weekend meal, expecting to be impressed, having heard and read good things about eating at The Bluebell. First impressions of the building itself are not great. Gardens, paintwork etc are in need of some TLC. This is disappointing given the pricing for food and drink. The choice and quality of food is pretty good but be... More

This place has improved dramatically since the change of ownership- the food was lovely and the service was excellent! The goats cheese starter and Cajun chicken main were just delicious , and the atmosphere in the dining room was very relaxed and pleasant - we finished our evening outside in the garden, relaxing with a drink- a very enjoyable experience!...

Yesterday's weather was a blip in the heat wave in Derbyshire so we were ready to warm up at lunchtime after a long walk and were pleased that the renowned Bluebell could find us a table, it has always been fully booked when we tried to go there. Omg the food was really lovely- and quite good value- on Sunday... More
