The Six Bells
Great Food Club members have been recommending the freshly refurbished Six Bells at Witham on the Hill to us ever since Jim and Sharon Trevor, previously of Jim’s Yard in Stamford, took over the pub in the summer of 2014.
This Grade II-listed country inn with rooms, built in 1908, has been given a new burst of life by the new owners and management team, and the food is winning plenty of plaudits. The dinner menu is full of seasonal classics such as (we’re writing this in the winter) roast rump of lamb, borlotti beans, wilted spinach & salsa rosa; and dry-aged sirloin with chips, field mushroom, tomato and an onion ring with garlic butter. There are delicious fish dishes available too, including the likes of salt cod & leek tart, salad of baby spinach, confit garlic & soft-poached egg.
The Six Bells is also home to a wood-fired pizza oven and has a good children’s menu. As the pub’s website says: “The atmosphere is laid-back, with dogs and Wellington boots welcome in the main bar”.
