Customer Reviews - April 2016

"Wonderful 50th birthday meal"

I just wanted to thank you very much for making my husband's 50th birthday meal such a wonderful occasion at your restaurant on Sunday 17th April.

The food and wine were superb and everyone enjoyed their delicious meals. The service at your restaurant is wonderful - very organised and discreet yet attentive exactly when needed. We really appreciated your help in making this such a lovely day. Please thank all staff concerned and we shall definitely pass on our recommendations to our friends/family regarding your restaurant and hopefully have the occasion to visit again in the future.

"Perfect Sunday Lunch"

Four of us had lunch today. Meat was perfectly cooked and there was a good range of vegetables, which I've felt other venues scrimp on sometimes. Food arrived hot. Service was great. Dessert was beautifully prepared and tasted great. A lovely lunch and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this venue.

"Great food!"

Was part of a 100 strong conference group that were catered for at the restaurant. Food was a great mix of local ingredients with a very classical french fine dining twist. Food, wine, service, atmosphere and location were all excellent! Will try and visit again when not on business.

"A treat"

A beautiful restaurant with great ambience and open fires, very relaxing. The food was amazing except my steak was a little rare. The waiters were very attentive. Well worth a visit for that special occasion.

"Low-key appearance belies a polished performance"

From the outside, Bluebells looks very quiet and low-key, the sort of place which might provide a big-standard family meal with ordinary service. The reality is far different. A very polished and nicely-designed decor inside is matched by very competent service of excellent food and accompanied by a decent selection of wines, all at a price that is very reasonable for the quality of the experience. The flavours and combinations of food are unusual and well-judged and I would strongly recommend it for business, couples our friends gatherings.

"Fine Sunday Lunch dining"

We found Bluebells a really well laid out restaurant with a smart open planned interior. Only downside that sound does carry and a noisy table to start did ripple through the main dining area. Our food was immaculate in its presentation and in taste, and service was efficient. We would definitely return here if back in the area again.

"Very nice food and not overly expensive 3 courses menu"

We had a very lovely time there. The special that day was an amazing seafood lasagna.. Heaven.. I haven't tried the lunch 2 courses formula, that will be my next trip !

"Go for the winter menu!"

"Excellent as always"

Ate here on Saturday evening, the service was perfect. The food was very good as always, my only criticism was the lack of choice for desert, if you don't like winter spice eg cinnamon. Then there was only one choice, this however was very good!

"Have a winter in our step after our visit!"

Haven't revisited Bluebells since 2014 and wow what an improvement, this is a seriously good restaurant. Brilliant food and great wine list. Service was attentive all times and the atmosphere had real buzz. There is great privacy given the layout so no intrusive tables near listening in. Overall an outstanding night out with friends in an equally brilliant venue.

"Outstanding food and service in restrained contemporary surroundings"

Really great discreet service matched by interesting menu and great food. Faultless from start to finish.

"Another Great Night"

This place is getting better each time we visit. This time the staff remembered us and accommodated accordingly. The food yet again was first class and the service just right. We were 9 on the table and it seemed effortless for them. We like this place a lot and will most certainly be visiting again.

"Always beautiful"

We go here a lot as a family for special occasions and it is always perfect. We've recommended to so many people who have fallen in love with it as much as us. The food is always great & John is a fantastic host :)

"Lovely family evening"

Candles, tree, roaring fire, beautiful table decorations, sympathetic service and delicious food all made for an excellent ambience for our 3 generations Christmas celebration. Highly recommend this place. We will be back!

"Consistently high standards!!!"

Have visited a few times now and never disappointed. Inventive menu, that constantly changes based on seasonal ingredients. Always very tasty and flavourful food. Decent wine list, great ambience and attentive professional service. Message to the Chef though- keep it simple, don't fall into the trap of getting over fussy, your food doesn't need it! Have fun when you go!
