The Bluebell is a smart, modern place to relax offering fuss-free food and drinks that retain the reputation for quality we’ve hopefully earned at Stones. Dogs are welcome in our outdoor space and bar area. No dogs will be allowed in the restaurant-style extension. Parking Please note we have a car park on-site however it can get very busy and is limited. Please respect the neighbours when parking on-street by not blocking their driveways. Please do not park opposite other cars therefore making the road too narrow to pass. Come and join us at this beautiful old pub very soon. Please note we are closed on Sunday evenings and all day on Mondays.

Lovely setting. Great food. Last night was let down by rather slow service especially when we first arrived and it was ages before we could order drinks and then before they arrived. Otherwise great and the food was lovely. We really appreciated the sound deadeners in the dining room ceiling meaning that noise levels gave a buzz but were not intrusive.

An excellent find for us. Went for a relatives birthday and was very impressed by the building itself, the friendly/attentive staff and, of course, the great food choice (all which was of a very high standard and more than reasonably priced). We shall be returning.

Excellent gluten free choices on the menu and the first time I have had a pudding for a long time - rather than half a pudding which is what I am normally offered I actually had creme brulee with my own gluten free shortbread biscuits. Full marks to The Blue Bell.

Excellent food and service as always. Really good to see that they have increased their vegetarian choices. Whilst I love the Beer Battered Halloumi, it’s nice to have a change. They now also have a separate Vegan menu and were very flexible about mixing and matching for all the different menus. Thank you for a delicious lunch. 6 very satisfied customers.

Our party of four adults ate lunch at the Bluebell in midweek. The menu offered a good selection of options and the food was generally very good and well presented. The dining area was modern and spacious and the service welcoming and efficient.

We would definitely like to go again.

We ate from the festive menu and were very with our choices.
However, there was no vegetarian option on this menu.

Food of a high standard, very tasty and attractively presented.

Service was friendly, helpful and discreet.

Car park small and awkward to manoeuvre to leave an easy exit. Adequate street alternative, though.Seated smoothly. Staff friendly and conversational when appropriate Pleasing range of menu. Food beautifully cooked and presented .Had pre-warned about a diabetic in party. Was offered a fruit salad (not otherwise on menu) which was also consequently chosen by another of our party. We both were well pleased. Impressed by range of fruits within and their attractive presentation. View from windows impressive. Owners had obviously addressed potential sound level problem by incorporating baffles in decor.
Will recommend and look forward to future visits!
