Restaurant description

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.

    Great service as two previous visits and simply gorgeous food, that is to say TASTY which isn't a description attaching easily to all I visit. The Halibut with Shin Beef, celeriac mash and leeks was awesome. If anything too much. I couldn't understand the addition of a filo pastry Parmesan infused dried leaf? OTT unnecessary. The treacle tart was also scrumptious. I am pleased to highly recommend and of course I will continue with my patronage of such a lovely restaurant. Long may it continue in these troubled times. I would add that although I've never done one I noted advertisements at the place for special evenings. It looks a lively place too. Keep up these standards please. You've set the bar high the moment one steps through the door. Bravo

    Although we arrived early, staff welcomed us and showed us to our table. The waiter was excellent, obviously well trained. Food was good and vegetarians were happy with the choice of menu. Beers good too.

    My wife settled for 3 starters and found the range and variety of flavours superb. My son said his steak was one of the best he has had.
