We visit the Blue Bell Restaurant quite often for Sunday Lunch with our 2 children. The service is always so good with friendly and efficient staff.
A 3 course Sunday lunch is only £10.95 and they don't scrimp on the portions!
It's the best food around and we will continue to visit.
There's half portions for kids and colouring pages & pencils.
Gorgeous sun terrace and garden too, if the weather is good enough.

Keep up the good work, Blue Bell Restaurant.

This should be a charming country town hotel. It's not. Instead it is dated, tired and understaffed, badly in need of investment. Its restaurant is unsupervised and manned by under-qualified foreign staff. The food was mostly appalling and after being asked whether everything was alright by one of the schoolgirl waitresses we replied (for a second time and this time in no uncertain terms) that it was not. Seconds later the chef came out and shouted at us in front of a full restaurant. Possibly funny in a BBC sitcom, not so when you're a paying guest. Not acceptable under any circumstance. The only mitigating factor was that when we complained to the manageress she immediately offered us a free stay and meal. The chef did not apologise. These sort of places have no right to survive, however lack of competition probably gives them a much longer lease of life than they deserve. Stay/dine here at your peril! Bamburgh is only 6 miles away and has more choice. Go there. PS the Rioja was ok

Enjoyed the meals we had. lots of choice and well cooked and well presented food . The service was not the fastest but then we were on holiday and not in a rush. No one hurried us to free the table. Friday night is Grill night. And steak meal for £10
