The Bluebell is a smart, modern place to relax offering fuss-free food and drinks that retain the reputation for quality we’ve hopefully earned at Stones. Dogs are welcome in our outdoor space and bar area. No dogs will be allowed in the restaurant-style extension. Parking Please note we have a car park on-site however it can get very busy and is limited. Please respect the neighbours when parking on-street by not blocking their driveways. Please do not park opposite other cars therefore making the road too narrow to pass. Come and join us at this beautiful old pub very soon. Please note we are closed on Sunday evenings and all day on Mondays.

Love the Bluebell. Only small criticism is that the cheese board is expensive for how much you get. Lovely presentation though

Lovely setting and clean, sophisticated decor. We're fans of Stones in Matlock and the food was very similar. Service could have been a little more attentive but staff were pleasant enough. Very much enjoyed it.

We were recommended to try this pub by our daughter who had good experiences on both occasions she had visited. We to were highly delighted, the menu had popular dishes cooked well. The staff were very pleasant and helpful, we have booked again for later in the month.

Lovely staff who looked after us really well, didn’t rush us and couldn’t be more friendly and helpful, we did sit near the bar area so noise levels was a bit higher and our elderly aunts couldn’t hear that well - definitely would recommend and can’t wait to return - thank you

Having had to cancel out booking for Mother’s Day we returned to celebrate the return to school.

Food was excellent as ever, we did not recognise some of the staff from previous visits but they were as well trained and attentive as ever.

Tables have been reduced and spaced out inline with social distancing guidelines.

We had a lovely bank holiday meal with family and everything was excellent from the service to the food.
The fish and chips were exceptional and the sausage and mash was extremely tasty.
Our favourite restaurant by far

Hi great food but found it a bit expensive and didn't participate in the government help out this would help with the £93 for 2 people wine £24 ish only 2 courses?
I eat out at least twice a week its a good Pub not a swish resturant if it was a bit cheaper I would consider going once a month as local.

Felt safe and there was good distance between tables. Service excellent and food was equally as good. Although would have just liked a little more lamb served on the roast. But love the Bluebell and pleased to see it back.

Got off to a shakey start when we were seated in the bar but had booked restaurant, got moved to restaurant which was fine.
Service staff were all good
Food was fine but menu lacked much choice.
Overall a average experience which is a shame as our previous visit just after opening was fantastic
