A charming rural pub with upstairs guesthouse, The Blue Bell Inn sources produce from the best Yorkshire providers to serve up a premium British gastropub menu. There is also al fresco seating for the warmer weather, and open fires for when it gets chilly.

The Blue Bell Inn menu boasts distinctly British flavours – to start, there are cider-steamed mussels, and sharing bites like ham hock and black pudding Scotch egg. Classic choices include beer-battered fish and chips, beef and root vegetable pie, as well as roast rump of lamb with crispy fried liver, fondant potato and red wine sauce. There is also a kids' menu, and a range of sandwiches served during the day.

There are sumptuous desserts served up at The Blue Bell Inn Harrogate, including homemade treacle tart, rum and raisin crème brûlée, and dark chocolate and orange mousse. The wine list is extensive and features regularly changing guest bottles, and there is also a great choice of beers and cask ales.

With a homely ambience and classic British comfort, The Blue Bell Inn is 22 minutes' drive from Harrogate Rail Station.

    The food was delightfully cooked and reasonably priced. The service was attentive and efficient but perhaps a little over-attentive at times. Some customers are happy to engage enthusiastically with the waiters and others (perhaps especially older diners) prefer a more taciturn approach!

    Excellent ... attentive polite staff .. good meal and very relaxing and comfortable seating and dining plus good value for money

  • ((((( 25 March 2017 by Judith Aylott from Huntingdon

    Excellent pub with lovely decor and friendly staff. Brilliant menu choices with a specials board. My husband had a starter pea risotto followed by shepherds pie and I had goats cheese and beetroot tart followed by seabass fillet with chorizo and chickpeas. This didn't come with any potato, so I also had chips. We then shared sticky toffee pudding with vanilla ice cream. All absolutely yummy.

    Beautiful food, friendly relaxed atmosphere. This pub is a firm favourite of ours!
