Here you can enjoy fresh local food, real ales and fine wines all served by a friendly attentive team in a pleasant environment that blends the heritage and quaintness of a historic village pub with bright, contemporary interior decoration. The atmosphere is relaxed and welcoming with a large beer garden and areas for children to play.  We have recently installed a childrens play fort which is proving to be an extremely popular addition to the garden!

Gringley was well known for it's love of jazz music thanks to the Jazz on the Hill concerts, which sadly, no longer take place.  However, the Blue Bell has rekindled the village association with jazz and we now hold monthly jazz evenings.  Many of the mucicians have not played in this area before and so you have a unique opportunity to experience some of the most talented acts in the country.

The Blue Bell Inn is nestled at the heart of the popular village of Gringley on the Hill in Nottinghamshire. It lies about 5 miles from the market towns of Gainsborough, Retford and Bawtry
