More than just a pub ... we have an old-fashioned belief that a pub should have a social heart and be flowing wiith drinks and great food, served by people who care.


The Bluebell Inn is a charming, traditional village pub full of character – the ideal spot for a leisurely drink or a superb meal with family and friends. Our picturesque location in the attractive village of Helpston is just a few miles from Stamford and Peterborough.


Our comfortable rooms provide ideal stop-over accommodation for tourists visiting the area or business customers. There’s free Wi-Fi and a car park.


We are also happy to host private parties or business events and will discuss your requirements with you to make sure your event runs smoothly, with the minimum of fuss for you.


The Bluebell Inn is a fantastic base for exploring the beautiful Cambridgeshire and Lincolnshire countryside and the many great places to visit nearby.

For fans of history we’re just a few miles away from Burghley House and Stamford with its many lanes and independent shops.

If you want to relax and stay locally The Bluebell Inn is just a few steps from the village shop where you can buy a newspaper to read with your breakfast then take advantage of walks in John Clare Country that leave from our front door.
