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.
went to the Bluebell to celebrate my birthday, food is fantastic and the staff are really friendly.
Great lunchtime carvery buffet and extremely good value at £6 a head. Staff extremely attentive and excellent gluten free selection. My elderly mother thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
The Bluebell Cider House is your typical narrow boat pub. There are no airs and graces here, but the food is excellent and portions generous. It is nice to see the chef(s) walking around and handing out meals and chatting to customers too, offering a friendly family atmosphere!
