Good honest food served
in a glorious village pub.

Our story

Welcome to the Blue Bell Glinton, we hope that you enjoy your visit with us.

The Blue Bell in Glinton is a family run pub ran by Husband and Wife team Will and Kelly Frankgate with the help of their dedicated team. The Frankgates took over the Blue Bell in Glinton in March 2013 with the aim of making this idyllic country pub a food destination venue. Our goal was to offer great food that was not only cooked exceptionally well but also served exceptionally well.

Alongside our food, we have a superb selection of personally sourced wines and excellent real ales (all tried and tested!) with a wide choice of premium soft drinks on offer. The building has a relaxed and informal feel with the aim of making everyone who walks through our door feel welcome. Its natural cosiness is not only charming but offers a perfect setting for many an occasion.
