Decided on the spur of the moment to pop in for lunch today. Because the weather was pleasant and sunny we opted for seating in the paved garden area surrounded by beautiful plants (palms, olive trees, hanging baskets). Ordered at the bar inside the pub from the specials on the blackboard. The food duly arrived after a short wait and... More

The pub and garden are a delight in the rural setting. Eat surrounded by fields and flowers. We had a lovely lunch here today. The only reason i didnt give a five stars was the country music being played into the garden. It spoilt the idyllic setting!!

The profiterole mountain made by the chef has become legendary and was a lovely surprise. A year has passed and our family and friends still comment on how delicious the... More

Visited for the first time in some 25 years but went on a recommendation. Greeting friendly although did have to ask to be shown to our table. Dining area very pleasant indeed with proper napkins and lit candles and fresh flowers on table. The evening menu was somewhat disappointing as there was nothing that really grabbed any of us. Very... More

We recently dined at the Bluebell and while the waitress service was excellent the charge of full price for a small child's meal was ridiculous. During the later stages of the meal we were asked to move as others wanted the table. This had not been mentioned when booking or on our arrival.This ended our evening abruptly which was a... More
