The Blue Bell is often our first port of call when visiting York. Truly worthy of its CAMRA listings and a true gem of a pub. When we visited on 21st March no food was available due to a staffing problem, however we were directed to the adjacent delicatessen "The Hairy Fig" (which we understand is in the same ownership as the pub) where we purchased a sandwich and what we both agreed were the best pork pies we had ever tasted.
The locals who use this pub are very friendly, and when it comes to the beer very discerning, their current favourite being Farmers Blonde from Bradfield Brewery. We were in complete agreement as it was well kept and well served. We will be back soon!
