The only pub in the village
Nov 2021
This is a nice place all except the Landlord. It would be nice if he acknowledged customers.

Apart from that its not a bad place.

Great quality and service

Lovely Sunday lunch baguettes. Great service and good value. Would definitely return. Child friendly but not overrun with children!

Takeaway
Feb 2021 • Couples
We’ve had two takeaways from the Blue Bell. Highly recommended. The pizzas were absolutely fabulous and just the same as eating in the pub. The second takeaway we had was burgers. They were amazing. Still so moist and the chips n coleslaw were fabulous. I have no hesitation in recommending the takeaway. Great service, great food.

Fab takeaway
Sep 2020 • Family
Another great takeaway. Pizzas were fab and the Spicy one burger is delicious, especially with sweet potato fries.
We had it delivered and as usual it was right on time.

Good start.....then down hill
Mar 2020
We booked in for an overnight stay whilst visiting friends in Ratby. The room was delightful and comfortable - so a good start. Our friends joined us for dinner and we were informed that most of the menu was unavailable apart from fish & chips, lamb shank and burgers ! When it came to dessert the cheesecake was not thawed so that was off too!! Never the less we enjoyed catching up with our friends and on being told we had to book breakfast by 9pm we retired following what had been an enjoyable evening. We went for breakfast at 9am and the bar was suspiciously empty and we had no smell of our full English which we had ordered. After patiently waiting 10 minutes my husband went to explore and met the cleaner who was cleaning the toilets. She called upstairs to Michael who appeared and was surprised to find 2 guests wanting breakfast. Our order had not been left in the diary and he had been out the night before. We eventually got breakfast some 45 minutes later and without an apology or a friendly smile. However, the room was of good standard and the overnight had served its purpose. Hence I have given a generous average rating.

WANTED TO GIVE IT A GO, FREEZING COLD SO LEFT
Dec 2019 • Friends
We went to try somewhere new, but left as it was cold as hell! Windows were all drafting, radiators off, staff going in and out of the back door doing deliveries and letting the dogs in and out. Everyone in there had a coat on. Leaving this so management can see and sort it, so no one else has this problem. Get the radiators sorted, do your deliveries before people come for Sunday dinner at 3 and get your windows sorted 👍🏻

OK - Could Certainly Benefit From Decorating
Nov 2019 • Solo
Typical village pub, lots of regulars having a nice time.
My first impressions are that the pub would benefit from a lick of paint.
I didn’t have any food on my visit, but it did smell delicious.

Fabulous choice & quality of food
Sep 2019
Now this is not meant to be dissrespectful of the type of establishment, not at all, because on the face of it the Blue Bell Inn looks like an "Ordinary" pub, and a very tidy, friendly one at that, But the quality of the food as out of this world- seriously! they don't shout about it, but they REALLY should!! serious restaurant quality & well presented, the prices also don't don't match the quality- in a good way! There is literally something for everyone, Vegitarians take note- there is an excellent choice for you too, & again the quality is up there! You aren't short on choice for a tipple to go with your food either, Gin, fine wines & artisan ales are all there for the tasting, all served up by the friendly staff- yet another asset of this fine establishment, you can't go wrong here- just don't tell them about their VERY reasonable prices!!
