About
The Blue Bell Inn sits on the border between North Yorkshire and the Wolds in the village of Weaverthorpe overlooking the village green, surrounded by open fields and woodland. Come and relax in our oak beamed cosy bar for a drink or two and in winter enjoy the open fire. Dine in our celebrated restaurant or one of our two private dining rooms and enjoy our excellent food and wide choice of wines and champagnes. Stay in one of our six comfortable en suite rooms or indulge in one of our six champagne rooms. We look forward to welcoming you. Karl and Julia Norton

They have a vegetarian menu so I’m sure if you asked them in advance they would try to be accommodating. We’ve visited here many times and always found the food and service to be excellent.
