Warm & friendly - and you can take your dog! Great location for walking. We had never taken our dog with us but she was made most welcome. The staff were so friendly and hard working and nothing was too much trouble. Great home cooked food. Try it!

Stopped here on many occasions and can't wait until we go back. Lovely food, welcoming staff. Brilliant location in the center of the village. Room was nice and tidy with everything you could ask for. Only thing can find fault with is the pressure of the shower and people in room above were very noisy.

Stayed in the village Monday to Friday break and visited The Blue Bell each night. Ate here two nights but had a glass or two all four nights. The two meals we had were fantastic - Monday evening steak night definitely should not be missed. We received a lovely welcome from the landlords and the locals. If you are staying...

This is a wonderful pub. It has a vibrant and welcoming atmosphere. The food is excellent and the staff are friendly and welcoming. They serve real Yorkshire portions so you need to be hungry! Really good selection of local real ales, plus a few from further afield. Could not recommend a pub more highly

We went to this pub for drinks and an evening meal. Queued at bar for ages, locals got served out of turn, but hey, that's what happens. Food arrived in reasonable time, but no cutlery, had to ask for some. Daughter's children's meal was dripping in oil, my pork belly was tough as old boot and couldn't be cut through...

We popped in for a sandwich and drink on a damp dreary afternoon. The lunch menu is not extensive with the normal pub grub choices. They serve beer bats if you can't decide on your choice of pint. The surroundings are okay. The out fireplace was very welcoming. Good stop for a quick bite.
