We came and ate for dinner. Lovely log fire and a very local feeling. Wow the fish and chips were better that any chip shop. Very friendly service. Make sure you book a table if eating. We look forward to eating here again.

Went for an evening meal with a party of seven at short notice. As it was Friday night the place was buzzing which created a fabulous atmosphere. The cask beer is good and the food and service was excellent. I had the fresh baked salmon followed by the cheeseboard which was massive.

If there is anything that eases a 240ml journey up North from Somerset its the thought of a two night stay at the Blue Bell Lound. My wife and I stayed here a few weeks ago and were so impressed with the standard of accommodation,and it wasn't surprising therefore to see that standards have not fallen and the usual courtesies...

Lovely village pub with friendly landlord and staff. Food was fantastic all freshly cooked and generous portions. Lovely well kept real ales and welcoming locals make this pub a must if you are in the area.

Recently spent 2 nights whilst visiting relatives. On arrival the room looked very nice which was the only good point of our stay. We were advised not to go through the gate into the back of the pub but walk through the outside gate to get to the car park as the pub dogs weren't very friendly. We let our... More

Adequate accommodation for 1 night - a bit of a trek from car park with luggage. DYO breakfast in room (check that fridge is turned on) is a time saver. However, the only way we knew that this was the way breakfast was organised was reading it in a review - I could not find it on website & was... More
