I'm a Mum of two boys living in Oxfordshire, enjoying lots of fun activities and writing about them when I get a chance.

The Six Bells isn't pretentious in anyway, it's a community local pub which does decent grub.

An old stone building with character, there are several small rooms and a larger newer extension room which is ideal for functions. Outside there is a large beer garden and climbing frame for children making it an ideal spot for a pub lunch if you have the family. It's equally pleasant to drink a local pint of ale on a summer's day without the kids.

I love going out and trying different food combinations in gastropubs and restaurants, but sometimes I'm just looking for uncomplicated pub food to enjoy with the family and without any stress. I've eaten here on several occasions with my husband, kids and friends. I usually go for the scampi and chips, a pub classic with no surprises. My husband really enjoys the ham, egg and chips with good quality thick cut ham.

Thursday night is burger night, with a selection of eight different burgers served with chips for 5. All the burgers are 8oz and are locally produced. If you are looking to spice up your evening then try the Mexican Burger which is topped with chilli cheddar, homemade chilli and onion relish and jalapeno peppers. Alternatively you could try something a little different like the Lamb & Mint which is topped with hot mint jelly, mint mayonnaise and cucumber.

The Six Bells has several televisions showing major sporting events, so a good place to go to watch the rugby and football if you're in Kidlington. Food and sport aside, there are a good selection of drinks. There's a wide range of beers on draught including ale and a range of soft drinks. Try an Appletiser rather than a boring old lemonade.

As you would expect from a good local, it's part of the community. Their pub noticeboard is the place to see this in evidence. There was a sign up sheet for angling when I was there last and lots of photos from charity events they have supported. It was also lovely to see a dart board which every good local should have.
