About the Blue Bell

Head chef and owner, Michael Pighills, has been part of the Kettlewell community since opening The King’s Head in 2014. Michael has won many awards at The King’s Head, including the prestigious Sunday Times Pub of the Year. The business has continued to grow and Michael was delighted to immerse himself further into the village community by broadening his love of the trade, establishing a sister pub in the charming Blue Bell.
