Visited here with my wife and my elderly parents while on a break in the area. The staff were nice and friendly and the food was very nicely cooked and presented.The portions were generous and great value. I would not hesitate to return here when I'm in the area.

Hi Richie.......
Great to hear from you my friend...

It's a shame you don't live in the area we could look after you more often.... it's nice of you to put pen to paper so to speak...
Potential customers will now be aware , just how good we are at our Blue Bell and they will not be disappointed with their choice...

No matter when you are up next Richie, we will look forward to seeing you again...

Also to let you know we are a family owned business that also have the Falcon at Prudhoe the Kings Head at Lanchester and the Jolly Drovers at Leadgate... for you perusal on our websites...
So until we meet again... Best Wishes my friend.

Good thick slices of meat, perfectly cooked vegetables and a good selection to pick from, much better than a Toby carvery
