About the Pub

The Blue Bell was built as a house in 1736. With its three storeys, gable parapets and roundel at the top of the gable it was a very smart building for rural Melbourne. The pub seems to have become known as the 'Blue Bell' in the late 19th century; before then it was known by the ghostly title of 'The Spirit Vaults'. We are lucky that the pub survives as the Melbourne Estate was not keen on public houses on its doorstep, having closed the 'White Lion' next door after purchasing it in the 1860s. The pub is well located for visitors to the Hall and Norman parish church (12th century) and has an outdoor heated drinking area. It is popular with walkers and a real cider is usually available on tap here.
