Alex Conway left this review about The Blue Bell

Possibly the best interior of any pub in york?
The Blue bell is coming out of its time of hanging up private party posters in the door to stop non regulars entering but groups are still very much discouraged.
there are two small rooms with a front bar mainly for standing and a very nice dark lounge with comfy seating and candles.
There are seven hand pumps on with me remembering seeing rudgate ruby mild, farmers blonde, taylors landlord and roosters yankee among others, my landlord was exceptionally kept although at a very expensive £3.60.
A real gem that is often overlooked but well worth visiting if you can get a seat, weekends are best avoided.

* Update, Landlord Now £3.95 there gonna start pricing themselves out!

Small two roomed with corridor space running alongside. Seems to get busy and doesn't take much to fill up. Nice - dark and traditional with real ale.

Oggwyn Great left this review about The Blue Bell

A bit of a throwback this one , the front entrance leads to a corridor , the first door is the bar with the lounge further on , the bar is a cosy slightly run down wood panneled place , locals were friendly with the main topic of conversation Steam railways . There is a list of no-nos on the door , no groups , swearing or shouting amongst others .
7 handpulls with TT Landlord , several from Bradfield and Rudgate plus Bad Seed Smart Streets which was OK .
