One of the worse meals I have had in a long time. Good disgusting microwaved poor quality food with frozen veg overlooked rubbery pasta and lasagne so dried out you would use a cement! Served by young staff who didn't know how to cope. Good so pricey and such a rubbish menu with so little to choose and lasagne as... More

We visited this favourite restaurant of ours last night 23rd jan 2015 only to be very disappointed. The menu was extremely limited. The starters arrived after 1 hour and were very bland and the ciabatta was burnt. The mains took another 45 mins. Beef stroganoff was slices of over cooked fatty beef in a watery gravy with grilled raw carrots!... More

Attended this evening for our friends birthday dinner after many good meals here. Tonight, however, was very disappointing. After 2 hours waiting for 2 courses the starters were awful and the mains were served on cold plates and quite inedible as the food was also cold. I returned my meal almost intact as I found it pretty disgusting. What has... More

Just back from the Blue Bell and I am afraid all the recent reviews are to be believed. We too were looking forward to going as we have never been disappointed. Unfortunately, I doubt we will ever be back. We arrived at 6.30 and, since we were one of the first customers, felt the service would be snappy. We were... More

Steaks still so-so but rossini(our fave) no longer on menu. Paella was more like a poor fish shepherds pie! Previous visit, was sure we were served leftovers: 3 types of potatos, gravy with olives and carrots in it. This place was so good and now it has gone to the dogs.

My husband and I have always gone to the Blue Bell for our Sunday Lunch as we felt it was the best around and although we tried numerous other places we always returned to the Blue Bell but unfortunately on our first visit to the New Year it was terrible. Straight away from appearance I knew it wasn't the same... More

Over priced old fashioned menu. Poor food qaulity , not fresh at all. Clearly not locally sourced as the chalk board states. My steak was small, over seasoned, cold and badly cooked. The sauted potatoes were not sauted but clearly a parboiled spud just reheated on my plate. Vegetables were drenched in oil, salt and balsamic vinegar and were precooked... More

First visit in a long time and will definitely not be back anytime soon. We were rushed to order and when the food came it was terrible. I ordered Mini Paella starter and it came covered in cheese a bit like a Lasagne would. The Lamb Shank main whilst fell of the bone was chewy. It was served with sauteed... More

We have eating at blue bell for 2 years and have never been disappointed, high quality food etc. Unfortunately I understand from the waiter (following our complaints) there has been a change of chef and as a result the standard has dropped considerably in our opinion. We booked a meal with family who were visiting us over Christmas so felt... More
