25 of our Liphook Strollers descended on the Bluebell for lunch after choosing our lunches before our morning stroll. The pub is lovely with a beautiful garden and views over the hills and faraway. My Wife's Wild mushroom & shallot pappardelle was every bit to her liking and all the others I spoke to rated their food very highly. Unfortunately... More

Really nice people. Service was good and the food well cooked and presented. The menu is not extensive but is of very good quality. The pub welcomes dogs and children. Lovely big garden in the summer. They have a large number of different gins for gin lovers
