Enjoyed a late Wednesday night lager in The Six Bells. A traditional pub, perhaps not the roomiest, off Mill Road and can be made a part of a Mill Road bar run. Always a pleasure

The Six Bells is a traditional local pub off Mill Road which has been here for over a century. The pub is deceptively large with the two wood panelled front bars leading onto a conservatory with comfy sofas, and a pool room. At the rear there is a patio garden. We have a pool table, dartboard and a great jukebox. Free wireless broadband access. We serve five real ales, a choice of lagers, Guinness and cider as well as wines, spirits and soft drinks. Home cooked food is served every day from 12pm to 9pm, except on Sundays when our Roast Lunch is served from 12pm to 5pm. Sandwiches available until 11pm. We have a Quiz Night every Monday from 9pm and Live Music every Saturday night. We also host an Open Mic on alternate Sundays from 5pm. We also provide a meetng place for various community groups and are happy to cater for parties. Please be aware we do not accept credit/debit cards.
