About the Pub

The earliest recorded entry for the Olde Blue Bell was in 1846, although the building itself starting life as three cottages, incorporating a bakery and a grocers. The pub and its out buildings were bought from the Duchy of Lancaster in 1901. It was then a small place, about half the size it is now, and consisted of a smoke room, a small snug and a tap room with an inglenook fireplace where the regulars used to gather. The interior now comprises a central servery with a public bar to one side and a lounge and dining room with old low beams to the other side. There are a few outside tables overlooking the car park, and at the back is a pleasant small garden with covered pergola and hanging vines. Popular with rugby supporters; rugby frequently being the big topic of conversation at the bar.
