After finishing work we thought we would call into the Blue Bell for a meal on our way home. I ordered my meal SURF, TURF AND CLUCK Crispy breaded tail-on prawns, rump steak and a whole chicken breast, served with a grilled tomato, beer-battered onion rings, mini corn-on-the-cob, peas and chips. I was asked how I would like my steak?...

We ate in the pub at the carvery and the food was good. We enjoyed a lovely day with family having a few drinks. The pub is basic but good. HOWEVER... This hotel is extremely tired and in need of an update. From the oppressive green as you walk down the corridors to the paint that is flaking off the...

Oh wow! We thought we'd try here for lunch after people had raved about it, they were so very right to! Great value for money food was delicious, my only moan is the TVs were ridiculously loud with the football on, next time however I'll make sure we sit in the dining area

Booked last minute for overnight business trip. Arrived in torrential rain the room was clean and warm if a little dated and tired. The bar food was just that cheap and not so cheerful. Staff friendly and helpful. No disturbance during the night. Breakfast average and the dining room very sparse. Ok for overnight accommodation.

Took the family here and although it is typical pub the food was only average, not much taste but ok for an occasional visit, family friendly and good outside area, may go back sometime if I am passing, I must say other friends of ours go and they enjoy so each to their own.

I would just like to take this opportunity to apologise to yourself Dave, we certainly aim a lot higher than to deliver average food so it is very disappointing to hear that on this occasion you weren't entirely happy. We hope to see you again soon to show you the standards which we usually deliver.

We went for a family meal and were disgusted by the service, the food and the attitude of the staff who really have a "we don't care" attitude. First of all the food is not cheap, so we expected something a little better than frozen pub chain food. Two of 3 dishes had to be sent back, one (a burrito)...

The room was ok. Really needs an update. The bathroom in particular could do with some attention to detail, e.g. tiles behind the taps and some cleaning of the grout of the tiles at the shower end of the bath. Rust around one of the bath taps was unsightly. The shower was good, as hot as you want and strong...
