A great pity as this place looked so nice at first. Incompetent service by cheerful but fairly useless boys behind the bar - confused vegetarian burger with curry when ordering. Apologised and rectified but we heard quite clearly the four letter words they exchanged behind the bar. Not very professional by any count! There is an optimum time between main... More

We stopped for lunch in this beautiful pub on a Sunday afternoon. We had not booked and the dining area was full so we sat in the bar area. It was lovely. Bright, comfortable & homely. The staff were friendly. I always struggle to find a good vegetarian in most pubs but not the case here. I had the Sweet... More

A warm and friendly place to brighten up a cold wet Saturday afternoon. The food was excellent and very generous portion sizes. The staff were friendly and very attentive. This was my first time eating in the restaurant as I'm new to the area and I'm already planning my next visit. The atmosphere was quietly buzzing full of small groups... More

This is a lovely place to dine with specially cooked Sunday roasts with lots of different vegetables. Caters well for young children with crayons and colouring book. Nicely presented food served by friendly helpful staff. Well worth a visit!

Six of us recent had a late Sunday lunch at the 6 Bells and everyone agreed it was fabulous. In particular, the corn fed chicken wrapped with ham in a Stilton sauce was declared to be delicious, whilst the portions for Roast Beef were substantial and the beef was cooked to perfection. My Bangers and Mash were very good. There... More

One of those days where afternoons turn into evenings and this pub was a gem of a find. With a delicious choice of food and a cosy bar to sit was the perfect place to spend a few hours on Thursday afternoon moving into evening.

Nice setting with pleasant beer garden. When we visited 2 of the 4 real ales weren't available and the 2 which were available were poor. We ate in the main restaurant and the service was very good, the food was ok but didn't have the wow factor. However there were some nice touches and the beer garden is worth the... More
