6 of us ate here on a Thursday night. The food was great for everyone and the service was top notch! Very friendly and very helpful throughout. We all said we'd be happy to eat here any time.

Fantastic food is important at The Blue Bell: our local suppliers provide us with great Yorkshire produce which our chefs use to put together a great range of dishes from the pub classics we all know and love (think Fish & Chips or Cheese Burger) to some slightly more elaborate dishes that are perfect for those special occasions. To keep things simple our main menu runs throughout the week at both lunchtimes and during evening service. This is then supplemented by a lighter menu of Sandwiches & Light Bites on Wednesday to Saturday, whilst on Sunday we have our fantastic traditional roasts available for only £10.95.
