After a short break on the hunt for Thame’s best pub burger, our foodie is back to review The Six Bells burger. After already completing The James Figg review it meant that there were only two pubs remaining, The Six Bells and The Thatch as The Black Horse has now closed its doors.
To keep the review as fair as possible we will try to order the most basic beef burger on each menu.
The review will be based upon the best quality, taste, presentation, and also what is best value for money.
“I must first of all for apologise for the time it has taken to get the second review done. I won’t bore you with my excuses as to why, I’ll just get straight back into the thick of it, with my review of The Six Bell’s burger.
The Six Bells doesn’t have an extensive menu but it has more than enough to accompany a wine/beer or two. There are two burgers on the menu, a chicken falafel burger and the classic Chalcroft Farm beef burger. But as this review is based on a classic burger I ordered the Chalfcroft Farm. The burger came in at £13.00, which was £2.50 more than The James Figg burger!
After ordering, my burger arrived around 12 minutes after, and much like The James Figg it was presented exquisitely. The burger bun was a lovely golden brown, and the contents inside were held together by a burger stick(It certainly needed it as there were so many fillings). The fries came out in a little cup, it certainly looked very appetizing.
Accompanying my golden bun and burger were 2 gherkins, tomato, onion, lettuce, bacon, gouda cheese and burger sauce. This burger was certainly packed full!! The burger itself was perfect, medium cooked and juicy, it was lovely. Like The James Figg this was a really meaty burger and tasted like a great cut of meat. The lettuce and tomato were fresh and there was a generous portion of bacon to go with it. The bacon wasn’t fatty at all, and really got the taste buds going! The cheese wasn’t overpowering, just enough to compliment everything else in the bun. There was certainly something for everyone in this burger!
The cup in which the fries came in was deceiving, as there was a huge portion of fries to accompany the burger. Much like the burger they were cooked to perfection and certainly more flavoursome than The James Figg fries.
Overall this was a great follow up to The James Figg burger. A juicy burger packed full of extras. The price may put you off as its £2.50 more than The James Figg but with all the extra fillings and the quality you get with this burger, I would highly recommend it if you haven’t tried it already. I was certainly left feeling stuffed after eating this”
Stay tuned for the final burger review as our foodie heads to The Thatch.
