Main Road, Boreham, Chelmsford, CM3 3JE
Originally three adjoining cottages built in the 18th century, the Six Bells has since gone through some major transformations. However, the building remains true to its original purpose, with an inviting exterior and an air of homeliness and comfort within. Having served meals to hungry guests for over three decades, the award-winning Six Bells has honed its culinary offering to ensure that all tastes are catered for. The chefs’ ever-changing specials are extremely popular, probably due to the terrific use of seasonal and local ingredients. The focus of these delectable dishes is on both freshness and flavour. An eclectic à la carte is also available, showcasing homemade cuisine such as slow-roasted pork belly with apple mash and cider jus; smoked haddock and spring onion fishcakes served with sweet chilli sauce, and quality 28-day-matured cuts of beef steak. Gluten-free dishes are on offer too. If it’s liquid refreshment you’re after, you’ll be pleased to know that the Six Bells recently received a Cask Marque award for its fantastic real ale offering. Wine, lager and hot beverages are also available and can be enjoyed in the pretty garden, which has a play area for the little ones.
