A little gem in Cambridge, a highlight of my trip. The atmosphere was warm and welcoming, the staff efficient and helpful and the quality of the musicians was excellent. Best mug of tea I got in Cambridge too, Eileen has a magic touch, I wish...this was my local pub.More

I’m trying hard to think of something positive to say about this place but it’s not happening. The food we had was basic - cardboard chips with a hair baked into my quiche, no dressing for the salads that came, the curry was served up-...something in a sauce plonked in the middle of a circle of rice with no further accompaniments, my wine glass had red wine on the rim from another customer (I was drinking white). Not one for being squeamish I felt sick when I discovered the hair after the dirty wine glass and just wanted to get out. It’s stuck in a time warp - pinewood panelling all over the place and a bit rough another edges. I definitely won’t be back.More

It was so nice to visit The Six Bells after a few years absence. A college reunion brought some old friends together for an evening of great food and beer in a great environment. Eileen, the landlady, went the extra mile to make the evening...special for everyone. Her staff were so friendly and helpful, the food was superb (I had a steak which I'd rate 11/10), the accompanying ale was tip top. I will be re-visiting shortly. I highly recommend The Six BellsMore

The Six Bells proved to be the perfect place for a 40th anniversary reunion of students from 1979 - we used to visit this pub back then, and it’s still well worth the trip! Eileen, the landlady, and her staff did everything to help us...- they had cleared a room for us so that we could chat before eating, and had set up all of the tables for us to eat in the garden area. The food came exactly as we had pre-ordered it (there were 35 of us!), and everyone commented on how they had enjoyed their meals! Eileen even made a fabulous apple crumble dessert for us all at no extra charge! The beers were great too, and the atmosphere, with live music in the bar, was really friendly and fun - absolutely perfect!!More

Fun little local. Live mellow music. Picked up about 9 on a Saturday. Not much food, but nice enough to make an ok burger.

Lovely friendly pub where we popped in for a pint and stayed for a feed and a few more pints. Steak, chicken curry and veg curry all very good.
