Traditional pub with parts of the building dating from the late 16th century (possibly earlier), whilst others are 19th and 20th century. Now hosts a fruit machine and quiz machine but no juke box or background music, although live music is provided monthly.
Despite having a large menu it is not treated as a restaurant (as in the past) but is now a pub that does offer home made food, with food available every session.
Formerly a Greene King pub, but seen being re-signed as a freehouse when visited in August 2014.
Many apologies to Kevin Forsyth, the landlord of Felsham Six Bells - which we incorrectly listed as closed in the current edition of Last Orders - it was actually still trading whilst being refurbished and rebadged as a Free House. We certainly wish him well in this new venture.
