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.

    Been many times but first time on Sunday. Veg sausages were not good and nut toast was mediocre. Basically - not impressed - week menu far better. Won’t b going again in Sunday. Place lovely, team great! Just not good meal.

    Really enjoyed the overall experience. We have eaten there many lunchtimes this was the first evening for a while. The place was full so really pleased we booked the table weeks ago. Great table set up with exceptional space for the 4 of us. Everything was good. Service prompt, smiling and polite. Food first class. Wine and other drinks good and not a silly price. Looking forward to our next visit. If you haven't tied the celeriac soup yet you should, yummy.

    What a find! Really great pub with a great atmosphere, food was excellent the best I have had for a while and service was spot on. We only meant to stay a few hours and got there at 15:30 and left about 20:30 …. Will definitely be returning. I had the ribeye and it was perfectly cooked, great taste and the sticky toffee pudding! Wow just wish it was closer!

    AMAZING! Booking simple and quick, with a reminder the day before. Fantastic food as always - we were spoilt for choice. Service from experienced and new staff was excellent - helpful but not over attentive. Ambience just right. We took some friends who had not been before and they said there was a nice buzz and they loved the quality of the food and presentation. Also a lovely personal touch with a happy birthday plate and sparkler. Great night out.

    We enjoyed our visit again, only disappointing thing was two of our diners ordered the chicken pasta dish and the gluten free dish was excellent with a thick creamy sauce but the same dish but not gluten free was very watery and disappointing

    Excellent quality food and value for money. Attentive friendly staff. Clean and well appointed dining area. The room was a little too warm for our party but rather that than being cold. Third time visiting The Bluebell, definitely won’t be our last.
