Stopped here for lunch as a halfway point on a walk in Derbyshire, and thoroughly enjoyed it. The steak and ale pie had my pescatarian friend very tempted to stray, although he had an enjoyable butternut squash based curry from the wide ranging menu. The bar itself was basic with stone floors, but ideal for walkers with walking boots on!

Visit with friends. Sunday Lunch menu limited - two meat options of Beef or Turkey, plus Salmon and a pie and a veggie option; no a la carte option, so uninspiring. Asked if beef was rare - told it was medium rare. Ordered it and asked for it to be as rare as possible - was basically told I would... More

Eaten here frequently usually from the blackboard menu. This is not available on Saturdays evenings however when a la carte menu is available and more expensive but enjoyable. You need to book on Sunday lunch times to avoid disappointment. Food is always most enjoyable and service excellent. The environment could be smarter but the staff are so pleasant and efficient...

This was our second visit to the Bluebell, and again we enjoyed a tasty meal, and some good conversation with friends. Our meals consisted of Tikka Chicken with chips & peas, Lasagne with chips and salad, Fish & chips, and Butternut Squash. The venue seemed quiet for a Friday lunchtime, although we didn't arrive until 1330, so perhaps all the... More
