Really soft and cosy with fire inside chimney. Nice services that look out for your opinion. Lovely place to drink a beer and have good pub food.

Four of us ate lunch here recently and although it was very busy we managed to get a table. The food was good the kids ate Mac and Cheese - it's good that this pub caters for kids, the adults ate Moules Mariner and the burger - we enjoyed all the food the kids had ice cream for dessert there...

pre arranged to meet our daughter and son in law here for Saturday lunch being half way for us both between Kent and Worcestershire. We'd not eaten here before but had dropped in for a drink on a previous occasion and liked the atmosphere. The staff were friendly, attentive and efficient. The food was excellent, very well presented, fresh and... More

We enjoyed a very nice lunch at the six bells yesterday. The staff were very attentive, the service was prompt and the atmosphere was cosy and welcoming. The food was very good indeed. We will be coming back.

A pleasant enough environment however beer is below average and the price of it above. Considering this is a brewery owned establishment you would think they would keep their beer better. Service was weak as well, talking on the mobile takes priority over serving customers

Four adults and a baby dropped in for Sunday lunch and were given a warm welcome. Quite busy but the staff coped with a smile and excellent service. The food and drink could not be faulted and the price was reasonable. Highly recommended.

The most amazing food ever, lovely atmosphere, helpful bar staff, but the 8oz ribeye steak and chocolate fudge cake were amazing, thank you for a pleasant evening.

Its a nice environment and has a cosy feel but there's much room for improvement and I'd say its going downhill The prices for drinks and food are far too high , £2.70 for a small tonic water is robbery, and meals were £16 - 18 on the board although we didn't eat on this occasion. Service was surprisingly slow... More

I have visited here numerous times over the years. My husband and I called in here for lunch on mid-December Monday. The pub did have a few customers eating. We ordered some drinks. The bar we sat in had a roaring fire and was very cosy. After a couple of pints we decided to order lunch with a bottle of... More

Thame was heaving on the next to last Saturday before Christmas. All the eateries were busy and no doubt the managers enjoying the chiming of the till! At the six bells the manager walked straight past us without any sign of a greeting (obviously doesn't need our custom!). At the bar the young lady serving had not a clue about... More
