Always loved the food from here, never disappoints. However last week me and my girlfriend ordered a take away to be delivered(I live about 1 mile away however we had both had a drink so couldn't go and collect). We did this through just eat which gave us a 45 minute delivery time, which was absolutely fine. 1 hour 10... More

Decided to stop in but didn't fancy the usual take away options, Bluerare offer a selection of bar meals & steaks delivered to your door. Friendly service & lovely food, I'm vege so often my options are limited, would highly recommend the mushroom & pepper stroganoff, will certainly be using this service again.

Been here a few times and also ordered from the takeaway menu. The restaurant is lovely, feels spacious and peaceful unlike some other places which can feel cramped. Staff are always friendly and the food is delicious. 2 for £14 is a good deal but the normal menu is still great value. The takeaway service is also great - food... More

I visited the Bluerare with a friend. We were taken to our table and got our drinks straight away. There was a good atmosphere in the restaurant. We both ordered off the 3 courses for £21. The starters were really nice and the sirloin steak was beautiful. We couldn't manage puddings so we took them home. The staff were great,... More

I ordered the kids handmade burger, it arrived almost cold and was tasteless and very chewy, not adviseable unless you have a penchant for tasteless foam rubber, the chips were home made and chunky but again cold as were the baked beans.

We arrived at 17:15 got sat down at our tables and went to order a Sunday roast dinner, we were told they have no Sunday dinners left, was a bit disappointed as it was only just after 5oclock. I ordered chilli which was really nice and my girlfriend ordered meatballs which she really enjoyed. Service was good I would recommend... More
