Another great experience. Went with the family for Sunday lunch and dined in the restaurant which is very nice. The pub was very busy but it is very professionally run and all of the staff work really hard and give first class customer service. Everyone really enjoyed the meal and the menu choice is very good too with choices of... More

I have known the Bluebell over the years, and it's like a roller coaster, up and down. I went today for Sunday lunch and was most pleasantly surprised, under the present Owner/Manager, it is very good indeed. You can tell a professional Restauranteur a mile away, and the present Landlord most certainly is. The Sunday lunch menu with a good... More

The starters were excellent with good sized portions and well put together salads. I would rate the mains as good with just the right amount of vegetables, potatoes and a bowl of chips. The restaurant was busy when we went which made for a nice atmosphere. Service was on the whole good, although reception into the restaurant was a little... More

We went to this restaurant for a pre-Christmas lunch. It is small and has an intimate ambiance. Very pleasant country pub with good parking. We were asked to arrive early and were led in almost immediately to our choice of table with impressive napery, candles, glasses and cutlery. Our party was 4 adults and 2 children. The set menu was... More

This was one of the few pubs in the area that was not serving Christmas menu only and would accept bookings for small groups. It was however a very good choice - pleasant atmosphere, stylish and welcoming. There is a choice of menus and they were happy to serve the bar menu in the restaurant at lunch time. Food was...
