Excellent Blue Bell
My friend and I had an excellent stay.
All the staff are most friendly and efficient - we couldn't have asked for more. Not only were we welcomed, but my friend's dog was too. Hurrah to The Blue Bell for taking in dogs. And to cap it all, the food was delicious.
Blue bell review
All the staff were simply excellent.
They were so friendly, welcoming and very helpful. They were wonderful.
The food also was extremely good with such a wide choice on the menu. The food was hot and very tasty. If there was a fault, it was that there was too much.
I loved the very elegant furniture in the dining room.
