Ye Old Six Bells pub in Horley, Surrey is set to re-open Friday 6th December 2019

The last images of this pub  quickly swept across social media were of horrific flames and black smoke filling the skies of Horley. Horley is a neighbouring town a very close to Gatwick Airport

In May 2019 at approx 19:30 diners were rushed from the restaurant following reports of a fire in the kitchen. Shortly after the whole of the restaurant roof caught alight. And the 700 year old pub, which is said to be the second eldest pub in the country had it’s restaurant ruined

The pub gets its name from the six bells originally hanging in St. Bartholomew’s church. The church is next door and very close to where the fire happened

Since then, the pub has finished the restoration and renovations work

On entering the venue you are instantly greeted by the restored period features and ceiling beams. The quirky design we admired and loved in our 700 year old pub has all been bought back to life in the renovation

There is a host of new meals on the menus as well as a whole new menu completely, Brunch

Brunch is now being served from 9am-12pm Monday to Saturday

The menu includes some favourites such as the full english and some new tasty treats like the pulled beef brisket hash

The VIP launch was this Wednesday, where I was treated to sample canapés and drinks from the new menu. I can confirm absolutely everything I tried was a real taste sensation

The drinks menu boasting a huge collection and a new arrangements of wines. Including low calorie and low alcohol wines. These were all big hits with fellow attendees as were the beautifully crafted cocktails

This friendly and welcoming pub has also welcomed back staff members who were staff before the restoration, and a lot of them live locally too

The rustic settings offer a vast parking facility on site which remains open 24 hours, which is convenient if you are driving from out of town

This much cherished pub and part of Horley’s history is loved by the community. The re-opening was welcomed adoringly by a special ringing of the bells at St. Bartholomew’s church

Ye Old Six Bells is also a dog friendly pub and I look forward to enjoying more of it in 2020
