My wife, mother and I went for lunch at the Bluebell Inn today. NEVER AGAIN!!!! I ordered a Ploughman's lunch for myself but as soon as I sat down I noticed the Specials Board which had something on I preferred. I went straight back to the waitress (less than a couple of minutes had elapsed) and asked if I could change my mind. She said she would ask the chef and immediately came back to say " No, he had already started to plate it". In the meantime, the table next to us was served 4 sweets and our order arrived after a further TWENTY MINUTES!!! I asked the waitress exactly what on the plate could not have been put back in the fridge immediately after I had changed my mind? She said she would get the owner who simply had no reply but said she would get her husband. He offered to change the whole meal!!!! Why couldn't that have been done in the first place? And anyway I would now have to wait even longer for my meal whilst my mother & wife ate theirs! My mother had sweet chilli chicken which was disgusting - bland white chicken with a thin layer of chilli sauce, chips and a pathetic little bowl of very sorry looking rocket leaves. My wife was distinctly unimpressed with her prawn cocktail too. AND it was all ridiculously OVER-PRICED!!!! I never write complaining reviews but I felt it necessary to warn everyone of the very poor standard of food offered here. Save your money and go elsewhere. We shall NEVER eat here again!!!!!!!! By the way, my rating is ZERO STARS.
