Fantastic range of beers at this place, I also liked the ambiance of the place, the many horse-brasses etc.

I enjoyed my Friday evening visit to the Blue Bell. It feels like a proper local and attracts customers of varying age groups. The beers are excellent and varied.

4 different Shardlow beers on offer, we tried the Narrow Boat which was a very nice pint, and the Rev Eaton which was superb! Unfortunately have to agree with some earlier comments about the bars, but full marks for the ale.

Managed to return, this time the pub was very quite being just after Christmas. I had studied the menu on their web site and was very impressed with the choice.
Parking is a lottery with street parking only.
The dining area is slightly sparse and cold looking. The menu was slightly different from the internet version with less choice. The prices are reasonable and the main meals tasted okay. The treacle sponge that followed was either soft light and excellent to hard and overcooked - perhaps micro-waved too long.
The pub is owned by Shardlow Brewery so had their Reverend Eaton and Golden Eye on tap. Guest ales included Slater's Western American Pale Ale and Northumberland Jingle Balls.
Overall, not too bad but slightly disappointing.

I phoned to see if we needed to reserve a table for Saturday lunchtime. I was told that there was no need to as trade was quiet.
As we neared the Bell, just after midday, the streets were lined with parked cars. Passing by the pub we observed a marquee in the garden thriving with people. There was nowhere to park yet alone get into the pub. We drove on.
I later discovered that Melbourne had a festival of performing arts event that day. Why had we not been warned?
I'll try again in a few months time when in the area.
