Having nipped in the Blue Bell Hotel earlier on in the week for a reconnaissance-couple-of-beers to look at their menu for a possible return later in our week’s stay in Belford; we did indeed return on our final night for an evening meal. It’s a very nice place and both the bar staff and table-service staff and very professional and... More

So off we went into the lounge... More

This is the only place to eat in the evening in Belford -so it can get very busy. However once large party had moved out of bar into restaurant bar was fine. There was only one vegetarian dish, all the others marked (V) contained fish! That said the risotto was nice and although they were a little surprised I wanted... More

We did not stay here but had 2 meals. Friday night steak night was excellent value but we also had other meals on another evening and all 4 of us enjoyed both meals. Very pleasant staff. Average prices.

The hotel is obviously in the throws of being updated.Sadly attention to detail was lacking and detracted from the excellent food. Our supper was very well cooked and very flavoursome. Drinks too were good, reasonable choice and the staff were very friendly. The tables could have done with being cleaner as could the loos. A bit more effort and it... More

Although we were not staying at the blue bell we had decided to eat there, we really enjoyed the cosy bar area and the atmosphere, the relaxed and happy staff and friendly locals. The restaurant was fully booked so we booked for following night in the bistro area. After pre meal drinks, we went to our table and were greeted... More

We found ourselves in this hotel due to the other pubs in the village not serving food. We were greeted with a friendly welcome and informed of a long list of food which was unavailable. I asked which beers and lagers they had, the waitress didn't know but did goto find out. We ordered and after a short wait our... More

The food was good, the staff were friendly and did their best but with no proper direction. The rooms although big enough needed a good clean, lots of cobwebs and a good "bottoming" wouldn't have gone amiss. We even had to make our own beds one day as were arrived back before 4 o'clock. No draft lager on first day,... More

Lovely garden in which to relax in early evening. Evening meal did not live up to menu description. i.e. puff pastry top on pie was dried up and cold. Risotto was served in 5 mins so pre-cooked. Room: Could see the layer of dust under the bed. Drawers missing from bedside cabinet. OK did not need them, but contributes to... More

The worst hotel I have stayed in in my life. Rooms not ready. Room was filthy and tired. Food service shocking with many items on menu not available including specials. Wine list was extremely limited with only one white and two reds available.
