“christmas dinner”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

the six bells used to be top notch for food but since being taken over by vintage inns the food is awfull. Christmas dinner at £45 per head contained no brussell sprouts and the two roast potatos were not cooked properly, half the plate was smotherd in cranberry sauce , so if you dont like cranberry sauce tough! the service was ok but thats no good if the foods rubbish. It seemed to have been cobbled together by someone who didnt really know what they were doing. Heard the place had gone downhill since new management took over but unfortunately i didnt listen.

“A good place.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Gatwick and went for a walk and found this place by chance 5 mins from the hotel. The place is charming and food is well priced and very good. They have a good selection of beers and the staff were very friendly. Well worth considering if staying close bye.

“Best snapshot of truly british cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012 via mobile

It was just perfect for what we needed to get a quick passer's snapshot of what a traditional british cuisine tastes like. Perfect food, great value, nice atmosphere. we had just 1 night to spend in UK and this was the best way to spend it.

“A good evening”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012 via mobile

We went to Ye Olde Six Bells on Sunday 16th December. We had booked as we were staying in a B&B close by prior to flying from Gatwick and had been advised they were busy. They were, but allowed us to eat before our booked time as we were tired after our journey. The atmosphere was very festive as a local church group were having a carol singing event, the pub was warm and welcoming. I had the whole grilled plaice, which was delicious and my husband had the haddock and chips.The food was well cooked, well presented and we did not have to wait. The staff were able and obliging and all in all it was a good evening. We will return.
