We enjoyed a very good Sunday lunch at this pub. The only menu available was that for a Sunday lunch so was slightly restricted. However, the food arrived at our table with surprising speed, delivered by friendly waitresses. The quality was good but not exceptional. Overall, the experience was sufficiently good for us to consider eating here again.

Having had a disappointing experience the last time that we visited the Bluebell at the hands of the rather rude assistant manager we decided to go back on my birthday as we just put it down to a one off. We were offered a free meal by the manager by way of an apology but rather than accept this we... More

Great atmosphere, have not been here for about 20yrs. Having moved quite locally we boooked a Saturday evening meal with friends and had a great evening. Great menu choice, excellent service and with smiles and friendly chit chat. Starters were all very large, I had 4 x Scallops on Black Pudding with crispy bacon on top, really very tasty indeed...

Nice clean place, very roomy. Was served very quickly and efficiently. Staff were lovely. Only issue we had that we thought the menu was very limited but only realised that when people sat at the next table we had only been given the specials menu and not the normal menu as well (we had already started eating by this point)....
