The Bluebell Inn

Welcome to The Bluebell...

We are situated in the small village of Whaplode St. Catherines, near Spalding, Lincolnshire. We have built up an unrivalled reputation for providing a great dining experience. A cosy country pub with two dining areas, one 24 seater, the other 40, create a perfect setting for that special occasion or just to enjoy great food or a drink in a warm atmosphere. Our extensive menu has something for everyone, including a large choice of homemade vegetarian options. The night can be topped off by our famous pudding board.

We take pride in our customer service and will decorate your table relevant to your occasion, therefore making it a meal to remember for Birthday, Anniversary, Christmas or Valentine's Day celebrations. Our Sunday carvery is renowned for being one of the best in the area so be sure to book in advance to secure your spot.
