Excellent pub let down by poor food. Really need to up their game regarding the quality of their food, then it would be perfect.

I have visited the Blue Bell a year or two ago and thought it was pricey but pleasant. I thought I would try it again and so read previous reviews. Unfortunately one of them was very accurate but in addition to the points I will outline I found myself rushing to the toilet within 2 hours of starting eating and... More

We popped in for a pint and cheeseboard a few days ago; the latter was excellent (although eccentric) say we thought we'd pop in for dinner. Booking was strange; we had to book for 2045, but were told to get there for 2030 because the kitchen closed for orders at 2100 but the food might take an hour to come.... More

We decided to try this place as we had a voucher for 2 for 1. I had heard mixed reviews to be honest but I need not have worried. It is a bit more expensive than the average pub but then the food is not average! I had an excellent cod dish - a very generous portion of well cooked... More

Our second visit to the Blue Bell in two years on a family visit to the UK. It came highly recommended yet again and food wise didn't disappoint! A good choice of menu and all four meals were cooked to perfection. The Haddock was to die for and the sauce was delicious! All of us loved our meals. The one... More

I wasn't expecting the amazing atmosphere, service and food that Blue Bell delivered on our visit. We arrived without booking, and were told there was unfortunately no room in the restaurant, but that we could eat outside in the beautiful garden. Seeing as it was a lovely sunny evening we decided this would be fine. If you want to sit... More

9 of us went to Bluebell to celebrate my Dads 60th. I hadn’t been since it has changed owners and as soon as I walked through the door I was pleasantly surprised. The lovely décor, cosy seating and friendliness of the staff was very refreshing and made us all feel very at ease. There was a good selection of food... More
