A really enjoyable evening with great food! Tasting menu is really good value. Must go and try! Staff are very friendly and drinks are reasonable.

I took my husband here for his birthday, both the food and service was excellent and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this restaurant. We regularly eat out, and will be visiting the Bluebell again soon.

I had a £100 voucher for my son and daughter in laws anniversary. They were quite willing to take my credit card details over the phone, but declined to tell me I wasted my money as the restaurant was closing. I think its absolutely disgusting

Arrived at 12.30 on Friday 13th July. It was unlucky for us as the restaurant was closed. According to a local resident it had shut permanently about a week before. Nobody had the courtesy to advise us beforehand.

It wasn't on my bill either, so we left a tip. So now confused as to if there was a service charge added or not, but really do not think it was on there.
