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.

    What a find - we’ve been meaning to try the Blue Bell for a long time since it reopened. What a surprise excellent terrace, nice modern high quality surroundings and great ambience. The food and service was excellent, beautifully presented and with the taste to match. Meals were a good size, well cooked and lots of flavour. Between our party we had a mixture of fish and meat dishes from the great range of choices both a la Carte and traditional Sunday roasts. Wide choice of drinks including a great pint of Theakstons Best.

    Definitely coming back I suspect more than once.

    Really enjoyed the 2 for £20 meals as very tasty food at competitive price ( especially the Thai curry) Lovely decor and service

    Really good overall but could improve dessert choices in my opinion. Had the Cherry bakewell which was floury and really dry (probably over-baked) and not very tasty. I did tell them at the time but nothing was done. The Tuna Carpacchio was superb but really small, The best bit was the Massaman Lamb which was totally yummy!

    Lovely staff. Good choice on menu, plus the additional specials for their Italian night. Delicious food.

    A smart and but cosy looking pub/restaurant with a friendly welcome. There was a wide choice of high quality food. I went twice in one week and thoroughly enjoyed it both times.
