After taking my family here and all of us thoroughly enjoying it, I decided to take my girlfriend for her birthday. Once again we both really enjoyed it and will definitely return again!
Great food, service and hospitality!

Have been to this restaurant several times and have always enjoyed my meal but not been for sometime. Was really looking forward to going with friends but I have to say I was disappointed. The starter consisted mostly of mixed leaves with very little chorizo and the main course the fish was overcooked (this could have been due to the fact that the plate was red hot so fish would have continued cooking). Dessert was ok - poached pear with ginger syrup - but I would have liked more ginger. Service was very friendly but took a long time to bring extra bottles of wine. The wine was, however, reasonably priced. In fairness I have to say that the friends that I was with enjoyed their meal.

The Bluebell restaurant in Coleford is a hidden jewel. The owners are hands-on and have brought together a talented team in the kitchen and attentive servers in the small serving area. The combination is magic. The building is charming, giving one the feel of an old inn from the era of Dr Johnson. But the food is modern, creative and fun. And the service was attentive without being intrusive. This restaurant deserves to be on your trip agenda any time you heading to the Forest of Dean or the Wye Valley area. Truly exceptional.

You must visit this wonderful restaurant. Cosy dining, great service, nothing to much trouble and food fabulous. Not the cheapest but well worth it.
