Three of us enjoyed an excellent Sunday lunch here. The owner sorted us out with drinks on arrival and brought us menus as we sat at a table in the lounge-bar area, returning about 5 minutes later to take our orders. The place was very busy and there was a good atmosphere. About 10 minutes later we were shown to... More

Called in with friends three weeks back. We normally visit the Cross Keys in Turnditch but they were strangely closed! Glad they were as it meant we got to experience the Bluebell. They have a bit of a way to go to get it perfect but they are certainly getting there. Well kept beer, good steaks and vegetarian meals, definite... More

This is a lovely little country pub/restaurant on the outskirts of Belper & as a birthday treat I was looking forward to some tasty food. My friend & I both ordered the fillet Steaks. Just short of £22 per serving & asked for them to... More

If today's experience is typical, The Bluebell Inn at Farnah Green is back to being a good local pub with decent food at fair prices, well cooked and with friendly attentive service.The Bluebell has had several changes of proprietor over the last decade and food quality had varied unpredictably between pretentiously disappointing and dull. The table d'hote Sunday lunch menu... More

This sounds a bit churlish but whilst all six of us found the food to be very good, tasty and well presented, the Bluebell lets itself down with the service. First - the welcome was less than polite by the gentleman who we presumed was mine host, two of the group thought him abrupt if not rude. Second - we... More

We booked for a Boxing Day meal and everything was first class with excellent choices available for all courses. The meal was presented well, the service was fantastic even though the restaurant and bar were extremely busy, we considered it great value for the price charged. This is a traditional pub as well as a restaurant and makes a great... More

Went for Sunday lunch On the 5th of jan 2014 . Although the menu was limited all four of us enjoyed our meal. Prices were what I expected and we had excellent service from the young lady waitresses . WE will go again.

A great night, nice atmosphere, a busy restaurant with a relaxed bar area. The food was well presented, hot and nice size portions. Everything tasted great. I'm looking forward to our next visit.
