So pleased we tried the Bluebell Inn after reading much improved reviews. Delicious Sunday lunch, very generous portions and excellent service/ambience. The only minor quibble was that the Yorkshire puddings weren't homemade. Otherwise perfect and the Creme Brulee was truly outstanding. We shall return.

This was our first visit although we had heard good things in regard to the food. We booked a table for 8 and had a lovely family meal. The service was friendly and relaxed. The food was enjoyable although a little restricted for the vegetarians amongst us.black pudding sausages went down well. We shall look at having an evening meal... More

We had lunch at this pub recently and the food and service was just excellent. We will definitely be going back there and can highly recommend this place. It is in a nice country setting and not far from the town of Belper Mill which is a heritage site. Also nice for families to visit the nearby Belper River Gardens.

Very good service for 20 people celebrating my colleagues retirement The starters and main meals was of a good size would recommend this place and I will be going again Only charged us for 18 people because one person don't turn up and the other meal was delayed I think this was very fair

We booked a table for 10 and walked from our rental to the venue. This was a good move to work up our appetite. We needed to ask for extra green veg but everything else was there in abundance. They accommodated various dietary needs with grace. Great location.

We visited on Mother's Day and age off the set menu, which included a roast dinner. The staff were most helpful and provided a vegetarian alternative (nut roast) to the mushroom strudel on offer. Good was delicious and staff were very friendly, will certainly return if ever in the area!

We enjoyed a very good Sunday lunch at this pub. The only menu available was that for a Sunday lunch so was slightly restricted. However, the food arrived at our table with surprising speed, delivered by friendly waitresses. The quality was good but not exceptional. Overall, the experience was sufficiently good for us to consider eating here again.
