    My wife settled for 3 starters and found the range and variety of flavours superb. My son said his steak was one of the best he has had.

    It was a pleasant meal, staff were lovely. I had the chicken livers to start which were delicious. To follow I had the chicken and leek pie. I am not a fan of thigh and leg meat off chicken, but it was my fault for not checking it was made with just breast meat, but it was fine. The mash potato was lovely and the vegetables were also nice.

    Really enjoyed this visit. Staff were attentive and very helpful. Nice atmosphere, part of the space being a traditional pub and the other parts a comfortable restaurant. This place has dramatically improved since the early days of it's re-opening. The menu was excellent with something for everyone. The three of us chose 9 different dishes over the 3 courses.

    Hi Last year I had one of the best vegetarian meals I have ever had. This Sunday we met up with our daughter and I had the worst. It was based on roasted carrots that were charcoal powder and should never have been presented at the table. I pointed this out to the waitress and in all fairness she offered to replace the course, Unfortunately I did not want to eat alone when my wife and daughter would have finished theirs. I asked that the item be removed from my bill and this was done but I have to admit I have never requested this anywhere in the past as I have never had anything so bad. I dislike passing negative comments but this really did spoil what should have been an enjoyable meal with our daughter.

    Excellent food and staff very friendly. Lovely to see a well supported pub/ restaurant which makes for a very cosy atmosphere. We attended the game theme evening, like that the menu only has a choice of 3 starters/ mains and desserts . All well cooked and well presented. Can't fault anything.

    Excellent food and service. Ver good menu with lots of different dishes to choose from. I have always found the chef happy to tinker with the menu to satisfy my taste requirements. All the dishes are presented very well and cooked to perfection.. The atmosphere of the venue is excellent, quiet corners if required and also the open area in the bar and restaurant for those who like a more dynamic atmosphere. Staff are well trained, friendly and effixent. Yes we love eating here and visit often..

    A very disappointing visit. We have dined here frequently and for the first time we were not satisfied with all the meals. There was a much longer than usual wait for the food to come even though the restaurant was very quiet. Then the pies for the two gentlemen were far too overcooked. We realised afterwards they should not have even started to eat them and they should have pointed the problem out to the excellent, friendly waiter straight away not at the end of the meal. We hope this was a one off not so good experience and the other two meals, Laksa and Fish’n’chips were fine. We have always recommended the Blue Bell to others, who have since dined there, and would now have to do so with reservations.

    This was our first visit to The Blue Bell and it won’t be the last. The staff were very helpful and accommodating, and the food was excellent. Plenty of choice for all courses. Hope to be back soon!

    Very good service and food much improved from previous visit. Sticky table was not good, simple solution would be a table cloth!

    This is a very nice establishment, well run with very pleasant staff and a welcoming atmosphere. The food is good with a large selection on the menu for food and drink. We had Sunday lunch here and I especially enjoyed the starter of slow cooked pigs cheek with peas. I would recommend this place for lunch or evening dining with their different feature nights.
