The Bluebell Inn, Gringley

Tuesday, 3 November 2015
Pub food is one of the best kinds of food. There's something about it which is so comforting... So much hearty, carb-filled goodness.

The Bluebell Inn is very much off the beaten track, tucked away in Gringley-on-the-Hill, Nottinghamshire. Which, as the name suggests, is literally a tiny village on a hill. Very quaint, with lots of cute houses, a tiny chapel and cobbled streets. The Bluebell is nestled amongst the little houses and you open the doors into a gorgeous, cosy pub with traditional decor and a warm atmosphere.

After deciding that cooking just wasn't an option, and getting a huge craving for pie and mash, my mum, my boyfriend and I took a little drive in search of a country pub for tea. Mum suggested the Bluebell, having been before and as luck would have it, they had a spare table on a busy Saturday night.

The menu had everything from fish and chips to risotto, which made deciding what to order almost impossible! In the end though, I just had to have the Bo Peep pie with mash, mushy peas and gravy. Proper northern scran right there! (Scran is Yorkshire for food)

The Bo Peep pie was lamb and mint in puff pastry, and it was so yummy. I'm usually a bit picky with lamb but this was really tender and the mash was lovely and creamy. By the end I was stuffed, but the fatty in me could have eaten more, it was that good!

Mum also went for the Bo Peep pie, and Luke ordered the surf and turf skewer, which looked amazing! It had steak, prawns, tomatoes and peppers, and the skewer literally hung above his plate. (There was a little bit of food envy going on, if I'm being honest.)

You can tell by his face that he loved it!

If you ever find yourself in the Gainsborough/Bawtry area (although, why would you?) The Bluebell Inn is definitely worth a visit, especially if you're a fan of pub grub. The staff were lovely and the food was delicious, I'll definitely be revisiting!
