When a pub restaurant is absolutely heaving on a Wednesday evening, and every table is booked, then you know you are somewhere good. I was here as part of a club meal with AllergyDad. The organiser had chosen the Six Bells because they like the food there, but it was a good venue for me as the website proudly proclaims “gluten free and coeliac friendly kitchen”. There is a complete gluten free menu; there are even gluten free beers behind the bar.
For starter, I ate Homemade Chicken & Liver Pate served with Fruit Chutney and gluten free toast.
For main course, I chose Seabass with a tomato sauce served on stir fry vegetables and sauté potatoes.
I was pretty full, but it’s not often that I actually have a choice of dessert. I chose a chocolate brownie with a warm chocolate sauce. In the interest of a full review, I did my best and polished off the lot!
There was nothing flashy on the menu, but everything was cooked with skill. The novelty of having a choice on a menu is almost enough to keep me happy! The only negative was the lack of vegetarian or vegan dishes on the gluten free menu.
