Decided to visit the Bells to watch the rugby. Feeling peckish I ordered the Surf and Turf off their specials menu. Have to say I was not disappointed, great steak, lovely king prawns and chips to die for. Well done James and his team.

First time visit and very impressed. Went for Sunday lunch for the first time and we will definitely return. We had the hot wings and crab/ salmon starter. Both very high quality and freshly prepared. For main we had the turkey and beef. Again both...beautifully cooked. Plentiful portions and lovely fresh veg variety. The gravy was awake some and thick. Huge portions but we still managed dessert of fudge cake and lemon torte. A wonderful meal at a very reasonable price for the 3 courses. The service was also excellent with the staff clearly well trained. Great setting and location in a small village. Highly recommend this great village pub.More

After seeing the Specials menu on Facebook We could wait to book in and taste and were weren’t disappointed. The food was really good, super tasty and very well presented. The restaurant looks fantastic after it’s make over and the staff as usual were very...attentive as well as making us feel safe with clear guidelines for us to follow. Can’t wait to see what the next weekend specials bring. Wholly recommend a visit.More

Impromptu visit on a wet Friday night and wasn’t disappointed! Lovely table by a log fire, low lighting and comfy chairs. Quick, friendly service followed by delicious food. The chocolate orange cheese cake was to die for! Highly recommend!

This evening celebrated my mothers 100th birthday here. The food was brilliant and the staff so attentive, sang happy birthday when bringing in the cake. Rounded off a wonderful day for a special lady.

Discovered this pub on Google maps rang and booked for the Thursday evening, we were greeted by a lovely waitress who seated us and took our drinks order while we decided over the menu, when our food arrived it was presented well and looked appetising...i must say we were NOT disappointed in fact we booked for the next 2 evenings Jon the chef could not have done any better he even obliged in my request for frozen grapes with my cheese board. The girls in the restaurant were so helpful and could not do enough. Finding the six bells and the staff made our holiday in South Wales thank you so muchMore

I have a disabled step father and wanted to take my parents out for a lovely meal while visiting South Wales and we live local to penmark and decided six bells was the place to go and we were so so happy we did. They...gave us a disabled place at the pub and were so accommodating for all of us and so so clean With everything that's going on with covid etc. The food was amazing, the burger was top draw. We honestly can't thank you all enough at the pub and can't wait to come and visit u all again soonMore

Yes, agree with the above response. Unsure of overnight accommodation at the Six Bells Pub. We have stayed at the Hotel near the airport several times when departing Wales.
