We had eaten here a good number of times in the past. The place was very busy, the (very) young staff harassed. For medical reasons, we wanted one course or snacks. The member of staff we told this to went to consult a superior: as result, we were refused service. Only diners wanting a full meal were being catered for.... More

What a pretty place let down by appalling service and very average food. It appears to have been left to run itself with a bunch of pretty harassed looking teenagers on work experience. I suspect because of its proximity to the airport it will always be busy whatever the standard but it doesn't deserve to be - it was dread... More

Just left ye olde six bells, thoroughly disappointed on a warm summers evening. Pub looks great, sounds great(atmos), but how long do you have to wait to get a drink or food, barman working very hard but he can't do everyone else's work as well. Managed to get a pint after 10 mins , started to queue for food but... More

Beef was cooked perfectly, roasts spuds were the best we've eaten for ages...even home cooked ones!!! Vegetables were beautifully selected and cooked. Shame we live in Jersey, but, to have a bar with such a selection, you are... More

This was the second time we had visited the Six Bells since it was flooded at Christmas. The decor is in keeping with the old building but is modern and the menu has been reduced but all the pies are still on the menu. We went with friends and had a good meal, all our party had different pies...and we... More

We found this charming quaint pub/restaurant purely by chance and what a lovely surprise it was. Always manage to fit in either lunch or dinner when going on and returning from holiday via Gatwick, very close to the airport. The staff are very welcoming and the food is excellent, lovely way to start your holiday or if you live nearby... More

4 friends off on holiday staying at nearby Cumberland House. 3 Veggies plus one omnivore. Plenty on menu to suit. Service was good and quite quick considering it looked busy. All meals were good and my veggie friends happy with meals and choices available. Good portions and drinks went down a treat. Good start to the holiday.

We hadn't even sat down in the bar with our drinks when up popped Signe with a table for us. Her attention to us, was terrific ,even though... More

We had our first dinner on our trip to England here. It was Saturday night and we had to wait for a table, but there was a cozy little bar where we had a pint of ale while we waited. It is a very old building, very atmospheric, low ceilings. We had excellent food---we each had a different type of... More
