We always go past on our way home but this time decided to pop in for something to eat. The food was lovely, homemade and cooked fresh. I had a burger and my partner had gammon and eggs. Staff was attentive and friendly. It was pretty quiet when we arrived and so food didn't take to long. Only disappointed for... More

We're always game to support small independent local businesses and this time we stopped at the Blue Bell for a spot of pub lunch. The pub is well appointed and very pleasant to seat in. The menu is standard and maybe a touch expensive. The front of house team was pleasant enough at first. We ordered the 3 herbs chicken... More

Service was good, food was expensive but the quality was extremely questionable. My sirloin steak was chewy and off putting which was a pity as the chips were great.

Myself and my husband stopped for late lunch on our way to Doncaster from Warrington, greeted by the friendly and helpful landlord. Delicious home cooked food at very reasonable prices. We will definitely call in again if we are in the area.

Call in here sometimes at lunchtimes for a working lunch. Great food, huge portion sizes at really good prices. Would recommend for good honest home cooking.

We called here mid-week for a late lunch en-route to catching a flight from Doncaster airport. Place was very welcoming, staff were pleasant and dining area was nice enough. A typical country style pub. We ordered a mixed grill and a gammon steak and with a couple of glasses of wine and a beer shandy bill was just over £30.... More

Called on a quiet midweek lunchtime. Not many in and quickly ordered. 56 minutes later we received our meal - nothing unusual: just a curry and steak and chips. No complaints about the food, but if we had been told when ordering how long it would be , we would have either chosen something simpler (biscuit perhaps), or gone elsewhere.... More

Visited today for Sunday Lunch and it was beautiful. I had gammon, my partner had beef and son had turkey. We all ate everything on our plates and loved it. We will certainly be back. The meat was fantastic with very little wastage. The veg was done slightly too much for us but we like it crunchy. If I had... More

After visiting this place and has a last minute thing and now from reading the reviews I can see why this was not busy and to top everything the manager doesn't care about your opinion on his service and food. In my opinion you can get better quality food, better service and is cheaper at Weatherspoon’s. If you have issues... More
