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

I have been going to the Bluebell now with my wife for over 5 years for Super and a few beers every friday. The Fish was cold and when I ask to replace it I got the response "For gods Sake" When I then decided to settle the bill - I asked for a receipt and this was an effort... More

It's a comfortable place with very good food. We've tried a few meat and fish dishes including the salad which were all excellent. Only ever had one dissappointing dish where the peas didn't taste fresh and pie was over done. Overall I'd definitely recommend it and will be back again soon.

It's such a shame I'm having to write this as I know a lot of people have had great experiences at the Bluebell but under the circumstances I feel it just has to be shared. My partner and I decided to book in for a Friday evening meal and as a treat booked in at the Bluebell. We both ended... More

Been wanting to visit the Bluebell Inn for a long time, and this day was an ideal opportunity to call for a meal, and it was as expected, very good, and we will go again.

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

Having came in good reviews of peers my self and my partner came for ab evening meal. I had to pop to the toilet which is shared with the pub which was smelled terribly of urine. The main restaurant area was nice and tucked away but could've benefited from a clean. (Dusty mirrors and windows.) The vegetarian curry was lovely... More
