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.
Nice ale and good food. Could do without the television being on - they are always a bit of a distraction and conversation killer! Would definitely recommend this pub!
Great food and drinks, very enjoyable time. Staff helpful and pleasant. There is some building work going on which will help make the place even better. Would recommend
The food was excellent and exceptionally good value. Nice canal side setting too. Varied menu with extra choices on the board at the bar. Will be going back.
