A lunchtime visit for a few beers and food whilst visiting Verulamium. Nice atmosphere a good choice of beers and pub food. Very good standard of service from all the staff. We enjoyed our lunch and would return without hesitation.

This pub has a lovely welcoming bar with a great lunch menu and excellent service. They even allow you to have a tab so you can settle up your bill when leaving. Have used many times and thoroughly recommend

The Six Bells is a favourite of ours in our favourite city. The Sunday roasts are lovely, service is slow because they cook the veg and everything else to order. Great choice of meats and a lovely friendly pub. Highly recommended

We welcome well behaved dogs in our main bar and extension areas as well as in our newly refurbished garden. Maybe you could get them a treat off of our new 'a la bark' dog treat menu! We look forward to seeing you.
