5 Stars for service, staff and food! We often eat at the Ring O Bells throughout the year but this was the first time that we've eaten out for Christmas dinner and it was brilliant! Perfect timing for all courses and the service was excellent. The management should be proud of the staff including the chef! Highly recommended, thank you!

We came here midweek for our dinner. Five of us, 2 adults, 3 children. My wife and I both ordered the steak and stilton pie. I thought ok, stilton can sometimes be overpowering but i will give it a go. This pie was the most amazing pie i have ever eaten, absolutely sublime, seriously good. I haven't stopped raving about...

Would visit again. 3 couples. Visited on a Sunday. Roast was lovely - plenty of it! And the deserts were amazing.

Having once been a regular midweek visitor to the restaurant in the past, it was somewhat of a disappointing, and probably final, return. Whilst virtually empty, the staff were disinterested, service appalling and the wait for food unfathomable. The food itself could only be described as mediocre at best with nouvelle cuisine portions. Needless to say, we did not stay... More

This Management has turned this place around. There is lots of entertainment evening/daytime and the food choice is your regular kind of choice but the atmosphere etc is good as when we have been it's always packed and is very popular.

I contacted the Ring O'Bells after hearing they had recently been taken over, to ask if I could book my sisters baby shower here for afternoon tea. Wayne, the manager, got back to me as soon as I messaged and offered us a selection of sandwiches, cakes and homemade scones for £9.50 per person and we added on prosecco too... More
