The Blue Bowl Inn, West Harptree

The Pub

We can't wait to welcome you to the Blue Bowl! We're a traditional family-run country pub and B&B in the heart of the Chew Valley. Situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty our 18th century stone-built inn is nestled close to the shores of Chew Valley Lake with beautiful views out over the Mendip Hills.

The kitchen...

... offers honest home-cooked pub food – serving a large restaurant, two bars and the beer garden, and often powered by our own on-site smoker and kitchen garden. We're known for our legendary burgers – the Hercules, Mo & Humdinger to mention a few!  Sundays  offer a hearty country pub roast with all the trimmings in addition to the main menu.

The BAR... well stocked with Thatchers Ciders (10 miles), many, many Gins including our house Gin, produced locally by Chew Valley Distillery (4 miles) and our ever-changing guest ales including brewed Butcombe (8 miles). All of our Real Ales have a Cask Marque Award, for the Excellence in the service of cask ale.

There's also an intriguing collection of chilli sauce bottles that sit at the back of the bar, including our very own Spitfire Chilli Sauce, Tubby Toms Sauces and seasonings for sale.

Wifi is available throughout the building, making us ideal for a working lunch, that all important google, and for keeping up with the social media. (Yes, we're on the 'Gram!)

The B&B...

... offers a perfect base, well-located for visits to Bristol, Bath and Wells. We're a short taxi ride from Bristol International Airport and easy access to The M4, M5 and M32.


With countryside and attractions such as Cheddar Gorge and Show Caves right on the doostep, and the world renowned Chew and Blagdon Trout & Pike Fishing Lakes, there's plenty to see and do in Chew! 

no matter how long or short your visit,
We look forward to offering you a warm welcome. 

See you soon!
