We've been to this pub lots of time. It's a small country pub with a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. The owners are always really nice and welcoming and the layout is cosy. The choice of ales and non alcoholic drinks is great... There really is something for everyone and they even do a great selection of teas and coffees! We... More

We were met with wonderful views towards Liverpool on a Sunday afternoon. The pub is also a post office and had lots of information leaflets and maps. On entering the bar our eyes were drawn to the ceiling which is covered in beermats of all the beers and ciders they have sold. We were offered tasters to decide what real... More

Lovely little local, without the feeling of imposing as a non local. Very welcoming and a fab arcade game.

We stopped here overnight in our motor home. The landlord and landlady were fantastic, even lent us a corkscrew for our wine bottle. The pub is traditional serving good ales, cider and a good selection of single malt whiskies. The pub is also a post office and setting off point for local guided walks. They also offer regular live music... More

The owners of this pub work very hard to provide the community, not only with a good selection of beers and ciders, but also a broad range of activities - quiz nights, jazz events, acoustic music nights, Welsh language sessions, guided walks of the area begin and end here and it is a place where small community groups can meet....

We popped in with family for an afternoon drink, it is a very friendly pub and evidently the heart of the community. Sadly we didn't have time to go back for a music evening

The Blue Bell is what a pub should be..... dog friendly, family run, open fires, good beers and ciders, always a warm welcome from the landlord Steve.

We found this while out for a drive. The Landlord was very welcoming and made us feel at home. I had an excellent pint, I think it was called Bluebell, after the pub. The missus had a sicilian white wine. The landlord showed us the events at the pub including folk nights and 'free' organised walks. We are looking forward... More

Great atmosphere in there and the landlord was very helpful which local knowledge. Just a shame we only visited on our second to last day as he gave us so much to do!! Would totally recommend a visit. Great ale too.

I had the pleasure of visiting The Bluebell today, what a smashing pub. Wonderful choice of real ales, cosy surroundings & a view to die for from the bar. Steve, the landlord, couldn't have been more kind & helpful. Definately worth turning off the A55 to stop for a pint. I wish that I lived 30 miles nearer to this... More
