“first time here”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

This is a friendly pub the staff go out of their way to make you feel welcome even on a hot busy Saturday afternoon, The food was good a notch up from the usual pub food we were expecting the lamb burger was especially nice. The total cost of the meal for two mains and drinks was £25.00 which we thought was good value.

“Birthday bash”
Reviewed 9 June 2014 via mobile

Been in here several times since reopening for food and never been disappointed yet! Been at lunch and dinner, staff always lovely, patient and friendly, food really nice and fresh. Yes its pub food but its all fresh and not prepacked and reheated muck!!! Definately our favourite place of the moment and the cheese and onion pie is exactly like my nan made!

“Give Breakfast a miss”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

Hii, we have been to the Bluebell on many occasions, either just for drinks or meal & never been disappointed but for this particular day. We had past the Bluebell on the Saturday & saw they did breakfast, so we went in, what a bad mistake. The lady who was behind the bar was luvley, very friendly but said she never works this shift normally so this complaint does not include her. we ordered a large full breakfast & a kids one has I would not have been able to eat anything bigger, we also ordered drinks, a glass of water & a pot of tea, I ordered 2 toast has an extra has the small breakfast didn't come with toast. We got our breakfast & there was no presentation put into it, the sausage had been binged, the baked beans was anaemic & was very hard, they didn't even have any juice, the bacon had been fried in a fryer like what you cook chips in, the fried egg had bits of blood red bits in the yolk, now the large breakfast got ate, only because my partner didn't want me to say anything, the only thing I ate was my hash brown, & that was full of grease, then after most of the breakfast came my toast arrived, but that got left. The cook if you can call her that brought out the breakfast didn't even come dressed clean, all grease marks on her grey t-shirt where clearly visible & being first thing in the morning you would of expected clean uniforms. We will go back to the Bluebell but only on a drinks only basis.
