It is named after the six bells in St. Lawrence’s church that were rung on special occasions or when royalty travelled along the High Street. The Six Bells also once hosted an inquest into a horse and cart accident. They have music on at weekends, though mainly cover acts.

Piggy Dave: The Six Bells is a Fuller’s pub with a pitiful selection of beers on the night we visited. The choice of real ale was Pride … or Pride. Following a nail-biting decision process, I decided on Pride. There were six or seven other customers adding the sound of general conversation to the background music. The barman greeted us when we walked in and was friendly. The seats were quite comfortable but there was a breeze wafting across the pub due to smokers holding the patio door open while they were smoking right outside it. This also meant that smoke was also wafting across with it. Ideal if you want to relive the 80s but not too good for my chest. The toilet had no hot water and despite having paper towels, there was no bin to throw them in.

Piggy Corin: Fuller’s pub, but only Pride was available on draft. There were no guest ales. Cheery greeting from the barman when we walked in. Music was playing and a few locals were sitting around chatting. First impression was that the pub felt quite homely with dark wood and leather comfy sofas and chairs. There were no screens anywhere, possibly a shame as it might have distracted from the lack of beer. No food advertised as the pub only serves food Tuesday through Sunday. They have music at weekends. Toilets were clean and had paper towels but no bin to put them in. The ladies did have hand moisturiser, though.
