About us

Our beef in beer is quickly becoming a favourite amongst locals and tourists alike. It is made with locally sourced beef & vegetables and Rudgate’s ruby mild then slow cooked for a minimum of 12 hours.

The blue bell has won dozens of CAMRA awards for the quality of our beer, service and atmosphere. We are Caske Marque accredited and have also been awarded national fundraising pub of the year.
