Amp & Pedals for £400?
So I already have an American Standard Tele. I sold my Fender Blues Reissue some months ago and now I'm looking to get another amp and some pedals.
I'm looking to spend £400 max and I'm open to buying used gear. I was looking at the Blackstar HT-5R but lost out on bidding.
I'm looking for bluesy tones ranging form Mayer, SRV, Jimmy etc.
What would your recommendations be?

You got lucky with the Blackstar.
Would a hot rod deluxe do bluesy tones? The overdrive is a bit weak though.

If you want a nice amp for cheap then an Epi Valve Junior+ a boost would get that bluesy sound. The only thing is it's 5 watts, so don't expect to do any huge gigging without a PA.
For a boost I'd get a Digitech Bad Monkey if you want a bit cheaper or a Maxon Od808 if you want to spend a bit more.
TBH, you should be happy you lost out on the Blackstar, I doubt it would do blues well.
For a cab I don't really know.
All this should cost you about 150-200 pounds with a cab.
Well, you can call me crazy

Look for a used fender blues Jr and get a boost pedal like a Digitech Bad Monkey and a Fuzz for the Hendrix
You could look at a used marshall JCM2000 DSL201/401 combo
It really depends on if you want a more fender or british flavor to the amp
