We booked a table for four (which didn't appear to have been written in their bookings book but was covered with admirable skill) for Sunday lunch. The staff were superb, just the right level of informality to match the relaxed atmosphere and a great 'can do' attitude. The food was good, two of our table ordered the chicken which was... More

The Bluebell Inn, Farnah Green, Derbyshire is just outside the town of Belper, and is a lovely country pub, with beautiful scenery and views across the valley. Eat inside the pub, or if you prefer, and weather permitting, there is a nice outside seating area where you are surrounded by hanging baskets, palms, olive trees. There is a good range... More

We took two elderly relatives for a traditional Sunday lunch on 5th August. The general atmosphere and reception was inviting. The food was excellent and the service throughout the meal was efficient, courteous and friendly. We had been to the Bluebell some years previous and left there feeling a little unimpressed but after our present visit we will be booking... More

Readily accessible by road, and close to a number of walking routes, the Blue Bell offers an opportunity for alfresco dining in an attractive terraced area, a casual open bar style, or a pleasant but more formal restaurant environment - each offering its own benefits. A warm friendly welcome, comfortable and attractive surroundings, a wide ranging menu and a well... More

My wife and I plus my brother in law and sister in law went for an evening meal. We received a friendly welcome. All the courses were first class, the accompanying potatoes chips and vegetables were more than sufficient. We all enjoyed the evening and said we would return again.

Went for Sunday lunch. I would advise booking as it was very busy. The food was delicious and there was plenty of it. Lovely staff and a great atmosphere. We will certainly return. The garden looked very inviting too with lovely rural scenery.
