About The Blue Bell Cider House

When it comes to UK country pubs, it doesn’t get much better than The Blue Bell Cider House. This handsome, 17th-century edifice rules the roost down Warings Green Road, close to the village of Earlswood, by the Stratford-upon-Avon Canal wending its way north to Birmingham, surrounded by farms and woodland. Hitch the barge, park the car or bike, and enjoy rustic, home-cooked British food alongside fantastic drinks, including vegan ale and cider brewed at the pub’s very own Blue Bell Brew House. Trying saying that one three times fast with a mouthful of roasted pork belly with Colcannon mash and cider gravy! As for the food, it’s classic pub grub taken up a notch, with hearty meals and grills bookended by a healthy-options menu, over-50s and kids’ menus, and, of course, a Sunday carvery. The Blue Bell is also a local hotspot for events and entertainment – keep your eyes peeled and your finger on the booking button.

there is no way possible you would be able to eat 3 Blue Bell Brewery belly busting meals. I desperately wanted a traditional dessert but after a generous starter but it would have been illegal never even managed to finish my delicious main. the food was freshly cooked and quite wonderful. This pub with a variety of ales and ciders is fabulous along with the very welcoming and helpful staff only downside we need to find a t-total mate to become our designated driver because I wanted to stay longer been illegal Please visit the hidden gem, which is the Blue Bell

I have many fond memories of the Blue Bell Cider House from a few years back, so it was quite sad to see that the decor is now looking a bit tired. The staff were lovely and friendly, as well as being very helpful and attentive. The range of beers is still good. I also had half a pint of one of the 3 ciders on offer, just right. We chose from the over 50s 3 course lunch menu. The food was simple and portions were copious. Rather odd that when I booked on line it said that I should hurry because there were only a few places left. There were, however, not many diners.

Fabulous carvery I'm vegetarian but there was more than enough vegetables for me to eat and I was offered a meat free gravy. The ratatouille was delicious. My husband loved the beef it said it melted in his mouth. We will be going back.

We went 8 people for Sunday Carvery and it was brilliant as usual, we booked on Friday to ensure the availability of spaces, because on Sundays is usually fully booked. If there is good weather you could eat outside.

We did have to send one meal back because the omelette was burnt, but the replacement was lovely. It was just a shame as it was our anniversary. I would return to the Blue Bell as I like the pub and the meals are very good. The staff are very friendly.

A warm and friendly atmosphere and the food was delicious. The only fown dude was the wait in the queue for the carvery - but that was expected at 2.30 on a Sunday. Overall, an extremely positive experience, highly recommended!

We couldn't fault the Sunday lunch, really nice, only thing we just didn't like was the seating lay out, small round table's practically on top of the bar no sorry.
