We stopped off here today by chance ...best decision ever, warm welcome by a lovely polite girl who offered us menus and various areas to sit. After looking at the menu although it looked delicious with a wide variety and choice I was worried there wouldn't be anything I could choose being a colieac sufferer. My partner asked if there...

The land lady of our bed-and-breakfast recommended we eat at the Blue Bell. Recommendations from locals are always worth considering. As this one definitely did not disappoint. We had a very warm welcome as we arrived and the group around to the bar created a happy and relaxed atmosphere. The new front of house waiter had lots of time to... More

Went for a quiet lunch with a friend. Warm and friendly greeting. Meal was served quickly and efficiently. I had the Calarmari - none of your frozen stuff here - quite superb. Then I had a hot roast beef Ciabatta - yumeeeeeee No room for pudding but they sounded good. Reasonably priced and worth every penny. Will be back sooner... More

Sometimes you just know a place is right when you walk through the door. That's how it was with the Blue Bell. It's warm, clean, friendly and just the epitome of an English country pub. We ate there 3 nights out of 5 on a family holiday, and the experience was equally good on each occasion. You can eat either... More
