Labelled ‘A serious foodie contender’ in The Midlands area by The Good Food Guide, 2 AA Rosette-awarded The Bluebell offers simple European cuisine with an indulgent twist. A Mediterranean-inspired decking area lends itself to al fresco dining, while the lavish Bluebell afternoon tea has become something of a trademark.

Garnering Michelin praise, The Bluebell menu showcases the work of expert chefs, and includes duck with pickled summer vegetables and halibut with almonds, smoked bacon and watercress sauce. Classics like fish and chips and ribeye steak with hand-cut chips are also on offer, while a white chocolate cheesecake with passionfruit and orange sorbet heads the desserts.

Take afternoon tea in the charming country-farmhouse dining room, where finely-trimmed finger sandwiches, homemade fruit scones, clotted cream and fresh jams dominate the delicacies. A selection of loose leaf teas and steaming hot coffees are paired with chocolate brownies, cinnamon Victoria sponge with orange buttercream, and passionfruit pavlova.

Swathed in black and white timber, The Bluebell in Warwickshire is a 7-minute walk from Henley-In-Arden Rail Station.

    Very disappointing

  • ((((( 5 May 2017 by Hilary Lucas from Hockley Heath

    We had a lovely meal, the food was excellent, the service was efficient and very friendly. They had run out of our chosen wine but brought us samples of others to try which was great .The atmosphere was cosy and unexpectedly there was live music on a Thursday! A vocalist with his guitar who was great , and just the right volume so you could still chat. A perfect anniversary meal thank you , we shall return soon.

    Under new management since December and space is fresh and comfortable. Staff very welcoming and friendly. We only had main courses and room was empty, service was great. Food was delicious although the cod I ordered was unavailable and I was offered stone bass. I Didnt know anything of it and neither, apparently did our server. I accepted and it was nothing like the cod it was replacing but perfectly pleasant. Food not cheap but certainly no more expensive than any other local gastro pub.

    The restaurant is under new management. The service and food were appalling. The owner is clearly cutting back on overheads as he is cooking the food himself rather than hiring a fully trained chef. Food was cold. The owner admitted he then microwaved it. There was no meat whatsoever on the pork belly, and the triple cooked chips were over cooked with no potatoe inside! I do not expect this place to be open for long.

    Excellent historic pub in the centre of Henley High Street. The menu is varied from fish and chips to sea bass, cod, and steaks. Starters include the basics of pate plus goats cheese, mackerel and crab and portions are generous. Our starters were delicious and main courses expertly cooked. The Pinot Grigio wine was delicious and the after dinner ruby port really high quality. My husband's birthday was generously marked with a complimentary glass of prosecco for us all on arrival, plus a happy Birthday plate with home made marshmellows. Really appreciated. Service was efficient, friendly and not intrusive. 100% all round. Will definitely return.

    We had a superb meal, far superior to normal pub food. I had the lamb dish which was beautiful to look at and tasted amazing. My husband had the fish with triple cooked chips and he said it was the best he had eaten. Lovely friendly service too.

    Adult food was quite tasty and worth the money
    Child's roast beef lunch for some reason came with a melted horseradish cream all over the plate and at 2 years old my boy would not eat it . At £10 I refused to pay for it .
    Service was great until assistant manager got involved then it went to pot
    Desserts with no cutlery and ignoring my wife when asking about drinks .
    Very poor indeed .
    The girl who was originally looking after us was just fine
    Added to the request for a high chair was ignored on the booking didn't help The added 10% gratuity just made it a joke .
    Better places to go
