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.
Good service, lovely home cooked food, nice atmosphere, we booked a table but chose to eat outside which was not a problem, would definitely visit again
We stopped in whilst staying over in the area for a night. Great value, good quality pub food and a most enjoyable (and unexpected) pub quiz.
First time at the Blue Bell Cider House. The carvery was excellent. Loved the cheesey mash and huge portions of meat. Will definitely come again.
Food is lovely, staff are friendly. Excellent value for money. Shame they don't do chips on a Sunday. Never judge a book by its cover
Lovely food.very basic style eating area.but would go back again. Would be great for a summer evening.Staff were very friendly to. Can't wait to return
Great food and large portions at the right price. Good selection of ciders and home grown ales. Plenty of areas to sit inside and outside.
Lovely food, nice and hot. Large portions. Service at the bar could be a little quicker, they prefer to serve the locals before anyone else!
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.
Beautiful canalside location in need of updating and cleaning. Toilets always are the mark of a place - and these need locks on the doors and regular cleaning. Old school location that could improve greatly. Food basic. Menus sticky...!
Not as good as it used to be meals used to be a lot better. Liver very hard and fish very bland. Steaks were good and the gammon
