Our monthly Lads Lunch tried the Six Bells. It serves excellent pub food, well presented, good service and good value for money. Lots of good beers on offer, and nice wines at reasonable prices. The venue is a real old style welcoming pub.

The Six Bells is a traditional pub situated very near to Verulamium park and museum (where there is a large pay & display car park should the pub’s own car park be full!). This pub is about a ten-minute walk from the town centre so it’s easy to combine a visit to the cathedral, shops, museum or park with a... More

We went for a family lunch at the six bells - for the second time - and both times it's been excellent, great food, really good service, and it's a proper old pub. Really recommend it.

We've been several times and always enjoy the food and the atmosphere. A great village pub, with staff who remember you.

Proper English pub, great choice of real ales, inspired pub grub menu and really good service. Parking onsite can be a bit of a problem.

Lovely meal, fish and chips and fruit pie to follow. Staff extremely busy as it was Bank holiday Monday, but very friendly and helpful. Food took a while to arrive but freshly cooked and well worth the wait. Pub was packed so we can't all be wrong! Will come here again.

Nice pub, Sunday lunch a bit disappointing, chicken roast was fine but the beef was cheap slices very stringy and chewy for £12. Our friends had been before and enjoyed it but they were also disappointed. Let's hope it was a one-off

Description
Great pub in the centre of St. Michaels village offering everything one would want from a "local". Can't believe it's not one unless the owners have requested so.
