Well - as the title says, we absolutely love this place. That includes my fussy 4 year old, my husband and even my Mum. The food is always fresh and cooked well, the staff are friendly and the environment is calm and a pleasure to eat in. I recommend the salmon or the roast on a Sunday - not to... More

We popped to the Bluebelle for an evening meal and found a very, very nice restaurant. The menu was superb with plenty of Game on offer including Partridge which was my choice of main seeing as it's not often available in many places. The pub had nice atmosphere and nothing was too much trouble, the Smoked Haddock fishcake served with... More

Excellent Gluten free roast dinner. The staff are very friendly and accommodating with a sense of humour. My mother in law can't eat big portions and they had no problems allowing her to have a child's portion. My son wanted to slightly change what his roast dinner came with and they didn't mind at all. The pub is clean and... More

Looking for somewhere to get lunch on my way to an hotel, found this on a rating website. Parking was a bit of a pain, but persevered, the main dining area was full, it looked like a pensioners party (I qualify). The friendly staff directed us to a table and the menu for lunch was really comprehensive, although all we... More

Don't be deceived by the understated exterior - this is a real find! We booked a table for a special celebration and were definitely not disappointed. From the champagne waiting on ice when we arrived to the delicious puddings, this restaurant delivered. The food was all tasty, fresh and hot but the thing that sets this establishment apart is the... More

Oh! service is also good - thanks Simon. Give this place a try either during the week or Sunday lunch. Good food, good value great service. Thanks to all at... More

We popped in on spec on a Tuesday lunch time, and the restaurant was quiet as you would expect. We were greeted warmly and excellently served by Leeanne, who was informative and knowledgeable. Very good menu and wine offering, we enjoyed our lunch very much - compliments also to the chef.

Wednesday night asked for a seat in what looked like a very quiet pub. We were asked if we'd booked and when we said we hadn't were told we'd have to sit by the wedged open door by the car park. Very condescending attitude by the server who was also barman and seemed to be doing everything else. I had... More
