SquareMeal Review of The Six Bells

Bronze Award

“Such a cute little country pub”, says a fan of this rejuvenated Suffolk inn just three miles from photogenic Lavenham. Once inside, expect log fires, real ales, live music, “impeccable service” and pin-sharp cooking from a seasonal menu that rings the changes: salt cod brandade with piquillo peppers and tapenade or roast allotment roots with walnuts and goats’ curd might give way to Lowestoft skate with leeks and brown butter or roast haunch of fallow deer with red cabbage, quince and beetroot. Steaks and burgers make an appearance, while puds could feature local pear and almond tart with prune and Armagnac ice cream. The Six Bells is also highly rated for Sunday lunch – in fact one regular declares that the food “wows every time I visit”. A note for history buffs: the ghost of Victorian murderess Sarah French (famous for doctoring her husband’s onion pie with arsenic) still haunts the pub, so they say.
