Name: The Six Bells - Location: Strensall

Address: Oxcarr Lane, Strensall, York, North Yorkshire, YO32 5TD [01904 490715]
Always in support of the Samuel Smiths Brewery - although very concerned about the current company strategy towards its staff and customers, as exercised by the Directors. We believe in promoting common sense, decency, compassion, fairness and compliance with company, employment and English law.

A very big place, serves a nice pint of OBB. A bus stop (#5 bus) 100 yards away go's to York every 15 minutes during the day.

Has always photo's taken inside are without the managers knowledge or permission.

Ian as you say its a lovely large pub, that serves a nice pint of OBB, but i have been in a few times at varies times and it never seems to get the number of customers in, on a par with the size ofthe place.

Ian, you are right about London - some of the Samuel Smith's pubs in the capital are like feeding factories and not places I'd particularly like to drink eg Chandos.  It's kike the McDonalds of the pub trade in there!

I suppose this will sound stupid, but Jenny,who worked here and at the Brigadier and the Tiger, has been sent down for two years for pinching loads of loot from ASDA. (See tonight's Press).
Shame, because I really liked her. I suppose it can't be condoned, but she always worked hard, and although she was one of Humph's people who ran around for him, I'll miss her.
Just shows you can't always judge people correctly.
Well I can't anyway!

I'm sorry about your bad experience but you can't tar them all with the same brush? This thread is a positive one about a pub thats just down the road from the Tiger as I'm sure you'll know. So why not give it a try. We have only one here and have no choice.

I go in the Tiger regularly, I either have an hours' walk or get the bus up to Haxby. I go in the front room, and I've NEVER known any junkies in the place. Maybe they go in the back room?

Since this is supposed to be a thread about the Bells, myself and some friends go in for the quiz every now and again on a Wednesday. We have a great time, but I suppose some of the squaddies may be a bit loud sometimes. Given a choice, I'd go in the Tiger, but it's a matter of taste.
