Ian Mapp left this review about The Blue Bell

First pub in a day of Camra GBG ticking in York. Well, at least those that I could find open on a Monday Lunch.

This is bigger than it looks on the outside but still small - if that makes any sense. A corridor leads to a tiny front bar room and a bigger back room. The front room bar door sticks badly - so you cannot help but make a spectacular entrance to the people that may or may not be gathered on the four tables available.

Friendly locals and staff and a very lovely and lively TT Landlord.

A good start to the day.

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.
