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.

(**** 17 October 2019 by Erik from York
Last year I had one of the best vegetarian meals I have ever had. This Sunday we met up with our daughter and I had the worst.
It was based on roasted carrots that were charcoal powder and should never have been presented at the table.
I pointed this out to the waitress and in all fairness she offered to replace the course,
Unfortunately I did not want to eat alone when my wife and daughter would have finished theirs.
I asked that the item be removed from my bill and this was done but I have to admit I have never requested this anywhere in the past as I have never had anything so bad.
I dislike passing negative comments but this really did spoil what should have been an enjoyable meal with our daughter.

Excellent food and staff very friendly. Lovely to see a well supported pub/ restaurant which makes for a very cosy atmosphere. We attended the game theme evening, like that the menu only has a choice of 3 starters/ mains and desserts . All well cooked and well presented. Can't fault anything.

Excellent food and service. Ver good menu with lots of different dishes to choose from. I have always found the chef happy to tinker with the menu to satisfy my taste requirements. All the dishes are presented very well and cooked to perfection.. The atmosphere of the venue is excellent, quiet corners if required and also the open area in the bar and restaurant for those who like a more dynamic atmosphere. Staff are well trained, friendly and effixent. Yes we love eating here and visit often..

A very disappointing visit. We have dined here frequently and for the first time we were not satisfied with all the meals. There was a much longer than usual wait for the food to come even though the restaurant was very quiet. Then the pies for the two gentlemen were far too overcooked. We realised afterwards they should not have even started to eat them and they should have pointed the problem out to the excellent, friendly waiter straight away not at the end of the meal. We hope this was a one off not so good experience and the other two meals, Laksa and Fish’n’chips were fine.
We have always recommended the Blue Bell to others, who have since dined there, and would now have to do so with reservations.

This was our first visit to The Blue Bell and it won’t be the last. The staff were very helpful and accommodating, and the food was excellent. Plenty of choice for all courses. Hope to be back soon!
