Following the successful renovation and development of both The Wheatsheaf (Sandbach) and The Lion and Swan (Congleton), Pear Hospitality are thrilled to announce the acquisition of the Bluebell, Smallwood. We want to protect the unique character and alluring charm of the pub and we fully appreciate what it means to the local community. We are very much looking forward to taking the helm and carefully guiding the Bluebell to the next chapter in its long history.

For now, the Bluebell will continue to be the same charismatic, familiar country pub everyone knows. At its heart, we believe the Bluebell is more than a business, it’s a valuable local resource, a thriving community hub for locals and visitors alike and we fully intend to keep it that way.

An exciting relaunch of the Bluebell with a delicious new menu is planned for the future, refreshed interiors and a passionate team, but most importantly – with the same charm, warmth and community spirit that you all know so well. We will keep you updated!
