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

went here on Saturday afternoon.4 of us and only 2 other people there when we arrived along with I presume the owner who was quite enthusiastic about his array of beers and ciders.the pub is quite dated and traditional and if you are a real ale fan this is a good place to go

Called in one afternoon to try the cask ale which was very good. Unfortunately the man behind the bar was very off hand, just poured the drinks and didn't speak. Felt very much not wanted and will not go back.

Steve M, Owner at Blue Bell Inn, responded to this review

Very sorry you didn't get the opportunity to open up a conversation as I think you would have found the individual most welcoming. He may have been distracted by the challenges of the day but that's no excuse. At least, as you say, the cask ale was very good! More

We visit this pub every second Thursday to listen to some wonderful acoustic music and just love the ambiance, the friendly pub staff and the excellent real ales on offer. The array of beer mats nailed to the ceiling beams provide an interesting read as does the blackboard with a changing theme....some very witty people frequent this pub!! We think... More
