Nothing special

Not cheap. Not top quality. Can't determine any USP. If you take a look at some other locals doing food then why come here?

I went for a surprise birthday dinner with my friends on Thursday 23rd July. The food was excellent and the atmosphere was pleasant. The outside heated adds a lovely touch to the place. Would highly recommend!

first we booked for a party of 16 quite a few weeks in advance. When we arrived we had been put on a selection of three tables, none of which matched and near to the door. So some of us had plenty of room to sit and some of us were squashed up together. We were asked to select our... More

Had a lovely meal from their new menu although it's not as extensive as the previous menu there was enough choices for us and the prices are a lot more competitive than the previous menu. They have extended the restaurant area and added an outdoor area to eat in too.

Three of us went along to the bluebell in May to try put the new menu and have a look at the recent updates that had been carried out on the restaurant and the facilities. We have eaten there over the last 6 years and, as previously posted, not always come away with a fully positive review. Historically, Slow service,... More

We held my 30th birthday party in the new Orangery extension. With the new private garden to accommodate everyone commented on how great the venue was. The service was professional and accommodating. The food was great and the served welcome drinks went down a treat. Highly recommend any function to be held here. We had an absolute blast.
