Visited the Bluebell for lunch with a friend after a long dog walk. We sat in the bar area and enjoyed lovely locally sourced food at very reasonable prices. Dogs are allowed so spread the word dog owners

Great meal last night with friends. We ate from the restaurant menu and sat in the bar. The others had sirloin steaks and I had lamb shank. Great and plentiful vegetables and lots of lovely chips. Bottle of house merlot was good and the lads Landlord ale was good. Thanks Steve, Les and the team.

A really nice country pub, relaxed atmosphere, friendly staff and locals. I had the mackerel starter and lamb shank which was superb. Other choices inc the Chicken and Steak again all enjoyable. Fine food and pleasant service.

fifteen of us met at the Bluebell for our secret santa Christmas meal, we all had either 2 or 3 courses off the set menu which was very reasonably priced. Everyone thought the food was excellent, good service and a friendly festive atmosphere made it a very enjoyable experience.

We had our Wedding Reception here. The food was of a high standard and the staff were incredibly helpful with the necessary preparation both before and on the big day. The profiterole mountain made by the chef has become legendary and was a lovely surprise. A year has passed and our family and friends still comment on how delicious the... More
