Took my partner and my mother for Sunday dinner, The chicken was nice and moist, Roast potatoes were perfect, nice and crispy and the Yorkshire puddings again perfect. There was plenty of food on the plate, even for the big eaters (me) however not over...flowing and looking like a challenge. it was all served hot and freshly cooked. The gravy was full of flavour and complimented the meal perfectly. The staff were really polite, friendly and extremely helpful. I would definitely recommend this pub, warm and friendly atmosphere, with smiling helpful staff and excellent food....what else do you want. Well done and thank you.More

Booked the Six Bells for an overnight stay whilst attending a wedding reception at Cooling Castle. Great welcome on arrival. Shown to our room which was clean and had all we needed (although some coat hangers would be good). Used the service of transfers to...and from the wedding reception - which works really well. Enjoyed a delicious (and much needed) full English breakfast the next day cooked by Kayleigh. Thanks for a great stay.More

We booked a 2 night stay, as my brother was getting married at Cooling Castle (which changed to The Vines in Rochester) but we decided to keep our booking and get a taxi to the wedding. We had 3 rooms booked at the Six Bells....We were greeted by Kayleigh in the bar, who is absolutely fantastic, made us feel very welcome and she’s a good laugh too! After a couple of drinks, Kayleigh showed us to to our rooms, all were a good size, extremely clean with their own bathrooms. We decided to have dinner at the pub and I have to say the food was very good (the freshly made pizza was delicious!) Kayleigh had gone home around 5/6pm and the bar was manned by 3 young staff, who were all very pleasant. After a 5 hour drive I was struggling to keep my eyes open and wanted an early night (10pm) and had to be up early the next day for the wedding, sadly this was not going to happen, my room was above the bar area with the windows overlooking the outside tables at the front. Very loud music was playing until around midnight. Doors slamming etc. This is not a quiet country pub. I finally got to sleep after 1am, after everyone had dispersed. Breakfast was good. Kayleigh was back on and again fab service. She’s wonderful. As were the other staff who were cleaning the pub very thoroughly. Room facilities- other than a towel rail, it had everything I needed. Rooms are very clean. Beds were comfy. Couldn’t complain at all. It was just the late night music / noise on Friday that ruined my stay a little bit. Would I stay there again ? Yes I would. Kayleigh is an asset to the pub / B&B, the rooms are spotless, the food is good and it has everything you’d need for a night or two. Maybe provide earplugs 😆More

Popped in for lunch. Very welcoming staff. Best Jacket potato with prawns I’ve ever had . Well worth a visit, will call again.

Came here on a Saturday afternoon for a drink and bite to eat. It was a cold day but we sat in the garden under the heater and felt quite comfortable. Neither the app or WiFi worked unfortunately, but it wasn't a problem as a...member of staff came outside to take our order instead. I found the staff attentive and the price reasonable. 2 drinks and 4 large sides came to just £20. Will definitely return if I'm in the area.More

Last minute booking for a pre Lockdown II family lunch. Food, service and setting were all first class. Good food and good value. Will be back in December - hopefully 😂

We stayed here before going to a nearby wedding venue. The locals in the bar were very friendly, the food was fantastic also portions were huge. Kayleigh was very helpful and couldn’t do enough to make sure our stay was perfect. The beds were comfortable...and spotlessly clean, as was the whole room. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this place.More

We’ve just checked out of the six bells, stayed for 2 nights as were in town for a wedding. From the moment we arrived we were greeted by friendly and helpful staff. We stayed in the family room which was lovely and clean with own...private bathroom which was down the hall. At first I was sceptical about not having an en suit in room with 2 children to get ready but was no real problem at all. Breakfast was lovely and all staff went out of their way to ensure our stay was a happy and comfortable one with transfers to wedding venues organised. Thank you very much to all the staff, we really enjoyed our stay.More

We had a pre-wedding meal here and the food was all really good, the feedback from my party was all good. The waiting time was a bit long but to be fair they were doing a big christmas meal as well which was booked before...us, because of this our food came out at different times, some were waiting a while but we were all in good spirits so not an issue. The food was all delicious, I had the lasagne which was good - not quite to my preference, my heart is closer to very tomato-y Italian original but it was a good lasagne nonetheless. I was getting married the next day and staying at the Six Bells with my 2 best men in a family room. The pub closed at 1am and unfortunately our room was just above the pool/ snooker area where a particularly loud/ competitive family were playing which kept me up. Should not have been much of a problem still, as even waking up at 9 would still be 8 hours but one of my best men was loudly snoring. The radiator was on in our room which I didn't realise and it did get uncomfortably warm, but I like to sleep in a cold room. All of this being said, the bed was fantastically comfortable. The bathroom was decent and clean, if not a bit small, had a shower, sink, toilet got the job done! Breakfast the following morning was really, really good, cannot fault them one bit! Breakfast is included with the rooms, only the mega-breakfast you would have to pay a bit extra for, and the food was fantastic. We also had a shuttle to the wedding venue the following morning at 11:30, which was really good. They normally do them 45 mins before the wedding ceremony and i think pick you up at 11:45pm but as we were staying over at Cooling the following night and had to be onsite early they perfectly catered to our needs. Transfer is £10 per way but if i'm perfectly honest I forgot to pay the guy, or he was being nice as I was the groom but either way, good service.More
