We were out touring the area with friends and came across The Blue Bell and noticed the dog friendly sign. We were given a table in the bar area. Staff were very friendly. All four of us chose a different meal and each of them were very good. We will definitely go back when next in the area.

Well what to say apart from lots of praise. Right from the start we were made to feel so welcome...nothing was too much trouble.
We ate evening meal in the restaurant and the food was delicious, plentiful and catered well for children. Our little one (aged 2) really enjoyed his dinner and made light work of the breakfast too. Which was huge although a little work is needed on the poached eggs!
The staff were very accommodating, friendly and helpful making our weekend very enjoyable. Just a little thing was the lack of a bath in the family room ....but all in all excellent!

We have just had our second visit to The Blue Bell Inn and it was just as good as our first visit 12 months ago.
We were again made most welcome and enjoyed excellent service from both Keith the owner and all the other staff.
Our room was spotless and warm and welcoming. The food amazing . A good choice and well presented. The choice for breakfast was excellent.
We are already planning a third visit next year if not sooner.
Thank you so much Keith for a lovely few days

A great and warm welcome from all of the staff. Spotless rooms and the breakfast is just one of the best we have had. In a wonderful part of Northumberland, this old coaching inn is, in our opinion, the best place to stay

Great meal, lovely food and good service....... Spoilt I am afraid too say by a table of young people where the ladies of the party seemed only capable of using the F word, which was unacceptable particularly as there was a family with two young children behind them.
No need for this and very disappointing.

We called in here on our way home from Edinburgh airport at around 6:30pm on a Saturday. We'd call into a few other pubs the either couldn't fit us in or didn't look great but this one looked lovely and there was plenty on the menu for me (vegetarian) and the kids.
They had initially said they couldn't fit us in, but on seeing my disappointment offered to squeeze us in if we were done with the table by 8. Since we just wanted to eat and get back on the road this was not a problem.
Food came quickly, good sized portions and delicious.
Bill was pretty reasonable too.
Would definitely go back next time we're driving past.

Dear Laura, thank you for the kind review after your visit on your way back from Edinburgh.
It's good to hear you found the both the Vegetarian and the Children's options from our menu both varied and suitable for you and your family.
I shall let our chefs know the food was delicious, and I'm equally pleased it was served quickly and as usual good portion sizes.
We look forward to seeing you next time your passing, or indeed as we are only 1 hour from Edinburgh Airport there's always the option of staying with our 5 ensuite rooms or 2 ensuite bedroom cottage.
Again thank you for taking the time to leave your lovely review.

A very friendly pub with good service, good food and very good real ales. Situated in a great location in north Northumberland just south of the Scottish Borders there is plenty to do. I've never stopped here but plenty people do.

Room Tip: Never stopped here.
