Last night was spent at The Six Bells Pub in Warborough. My OH & I were meeting up with some friends & the Six Bells is perfectly situated so that it is half way between us. I’d looked on-line & tweeted about where we could meet for dinner, but nothing really grabbed me, until I saw the Six Bells. Most people will know it because it features in a lot of Midsummer Murders episodes. Not being an massive Midsummer fan, I didn’t really know what to expect, although I was pleased to see more than one veggie option on their sample menu on-line. Easy to find & located in the very beautiful village of Warborough, it’s a great place to eat & catch up with friends.
We arrived & bought some drinks, my first (small) glass of wine this year, while waiting for our friends. When we were ready, we were sat at a table that was in a great spot as it was a little secluded from the other diners. The menu was very good. There were three veggie options in the mains section & I could have eaten any of them. I didn’t have a starter, as I was saving myself for a pudding. I opted for the Bean Lasagna, as it was a little different & not something I would cook at home. When it arrived, the portion size was very reasonable. Lasagna is quite filling, especially when it includes beans so it shouldn’t be massive. It came with a lovely fresh side salad & salad dressing.
It was very tasty. I really liked it, it was well cooked, with a few crispy bits on the edges. Not too much cheese either. Perfect! We’d waited quite a while between the starters that the boys had & our main course. We hadn’t notice because we were busy chatting, but the lady who served us, who I think was the owner, came over & apologised and offered to buy us a round of drinks. This impressed me no end! They were three members of staff short but the service & the atmosphere was excellent. We weren’t rushed or ignored.
The choices on the dessert menu were great, something for everyone. But as I’m a creature of habit, there was only really one choice: Chocolate brownie! My friend & I shared the pudding, which was a good idea as it was quite choclatey.
All in all, we had a perfect evening. Excellent service, great food, good wine & fab company. I will definitely be going back to the Six Bells. They also do some lovely looking jacket potatoes and sandwiches at lunch time & I’d love to give them a taste. If you haven’t been to the Six Bells then you really should make a visit there. I for one cannot wait to go back!
