Good Beer Guide 2021 Entry - Everards House and their range was on. Tiger was in perfect condition.

Lovely beer garden - where they are still offering table service for drinks/food. Great service but it did deprive me of a mooch around inside.

The food was excellent and quickly served. £16 for a ploughmans gives you some idea to the amount of content - as it was still reasonable value for money.

Nice village pub.

The Blue Bell is the only pub in the village of Hoby and it is run by Everard's.

We sat outside in the garden, which slopes down towards the valley. There are great views and a few petanque pits. Beers are all from Everard's - Old Original, Beacon Hill, Tiger & Sunchaser. The cider is Old Rosie. The interior looked dark and traditional.

Covid precautions are a little strange. After walking through the pub to order at the bar, we were instructed to take a seat and wait for somebody to take our order. Unlike many places, our order was taken quickly and our drinks arrived quickly. But when asked for the bill, the waitress directed us to pay at the bar. If this process is in place to reduce people's trips to the bar, it failed dramatically for us, as we ended up making 2 trips, instead of the single trip we would have made in pre-Covid times. A little common sense is called for.
