    The food at THe Six Bells was delicious. We chose fish and chips - the fish was lightly battered, with very good chips - steak tender and tasty, cooked exactly as we like it, and a great chicken hamburger. The crumble dessert was lovely - four of us shared one with ice cream and one with custard - but wished we had ordered one each! Service was charming and unobtrusive and altogether the meal was great value.

    We were a table of eight and ate in the conservatory for Sunday lunch. Very nice roasts - enormous Yorkshire puds! Good service and reasonably priced. Would come again.

    No welcome. No heating in dining area, although we had booked, fire was grudgingly lit after a while. Table was near door so had to sit with our coats on. There seemed plenty of staff, but ages before we were given menus and, although we'd obviously chosen, we had to call staff to take order. 2 roast beefs were good, with no complaint. One vegetarian meal was sitting in gravy so was soggy. If we'd known, we could have asked for gravy to be served separately. Peas, cabbage and leeks served, all mixed together in one dish. OK if we like them all, but one person didn't. Gents toilet seemed fairly new with no complaint. Ladies' toilet smelt unpleasant. Finally, didn't notice service charge was added to bill, so inadvertently paid it.

    Good and service excellent although conservatory was quite cold due to the freezing weather. The menu was quite a contrast to the lunchtime menu which was very very disappointing. Our meal that evening though was very enjoyable.

    We booked a table for 8pm on Saturday evening planning to spend the rest of the evening have a leisurely evening meal. Unfortunately, the pub was virtually empty and therefore no atmosphere. No music paying initially, this was rectified a little later. We asked to have our starter first and order mains later. This was met with reluctance as we were the only diners and told the kitchen will close after our order. We were given the dessert menu and 10 seconds to decide! Needless to say we didn't have dessert and then went to another pub to finish off our relaxing evening. Such a shame as the food was nice, decor pleasant and the waitress was polite.

    Very welcoming with great service! Ordered the calves liver dish which was absolutely delicious. Nice selection of wines and draft beers. There’s an extensive network of walking paths making this local pub a great stop off for walkers.

    A quality Country Pub. Good menu with many classics. Excellent wine list - very good value. The calves liver is a particular favourite as is the Crumble.

    We were driving back home looking for a place to eat and happened across the Six Bells. We were with our young son and wanted to eat at 5.30pm. The landlord Nigel could not be more welcoming and was happy to accommodate us. Food was excellent quality and the service very good while prices represented good value. Would definitely come back here for lunch or an evening meal.
