“Lovely location”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

I think the Bluebell has potential to be a very good pub/restaurant, the Staff are friendly efficient and cooperative, nice big garden in open countryside ( could maybe do with a few more tables in the future) We went on a Friday night and expected by the reviews for it to be packed but it was fairly quiet.
The decor is quite modern although it has the charm of an older pub, It all feels quite new and needs some more time to get the full old pub atmosphere in my opinion.
We decided to try the burgers which we had seen recommended on the reviews, they were OK only as were the chips.
The people around us who were trying the local beers sounded impressed and we actually saw one of the staff take samples to someone's table to try the different flavours, you won't see that to often !
On the whole this pub has great potential if the staff keep up the great work, just in my opinion I would like to see an improvement in lower price point food.
I will go again !

“Fantastic Food”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

Enjoyed a very tasty lunch at The Bluebell pub with a friend and our two young children. The service was very prompt and friendly, the food arrived freshly cooked to order. The home made burger looked every bit as delicious as it tasted. We will be returning again and again. Thank you for such an enjoyable experience.

“Excellent food”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

We arrived for a very late Saturday lunch (3pm) and were served fresh food.
The food was prepared on order so there was a bit of a wait but it's definitely worth it. The fish and chips is delicious and cooked in a light lavender and lemon batter, which makes it less greasy than the ordinary beer batter.
There is a big pretty garden at the back with plenty of tables, ideal for a sunny day.
The staff was very friendly and welcoming, I would recommend it.

“Great Lunch”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

Stopped at The Bluebell on the way home from a trip and much enjoyed the lunchtime fare.Particularly good 'home-made' burger and an excellent chicken curry. Good selection of well kept real ales all served by cheerful and enthusiastic young staff. Would highly recommend.
