        It was right there when I last called up the website. It's probably on their facebook page too.

          JanR, its a popup that loads when you first load the website in a big diamond shape. If you are using popup blockers it is possible you might not see that.

        I had not noticed that they closed. Haven't been since it was the original/old Blue Bell Inn many years back.

            I hadn't realized they closed until very recently, the renovations look very nice!

                Yes, CW, it has been affectionately known as the Bluehaired Belle Inn for decades but, as I have been a regular since infancy and approach my dotage, I would like to see the new digs. Just so they don't make it into a sports bar.
