We had a very disappointing meal here on Mother's Day... The service was extremely slow and would have benefitted from more experienced, attentive waiting staff. The starters of mushroom pate and prawn and crab cocktail were bland and lacked any presentational skills. Most of the mushroom pate was left on the plate when the waitress staff collected them and the... More

Party of around 18 friends arranged hot buffet. The veg curry was hot great for me but too hot for some. Some fish, and chicken 'guojons' plus chips and some salad. Most were meat eaters so should have been better catered for. Maybe a misunderstanding as the new management are trying hard to please and the excellent curry displayed chefs... More

Loved every aspect of our celebration, our own private table in the conservatory for the party of 12 adults and 2 children, great service, excellent food and our requests for 'off the menu' items, asked for in advance, were amazing. Thank you Paul and Joanne for providing everything needed for a memorable evening and special mention to the chef and... More

My family would like to thank Paul & Joanne for making my fathers ninety - first Birthday treat perfect. They worked so hard waiting on table for my family, the meals were served to perfection, fish & chips were fantastic. The chef deserves a special mention "Jamie" he is passionate about cooking, he is truly a great chef .

The Ring O'Bells is my Mums favourite pub and when the previous owners left we worried that things would not be the same and they are not, they are much better! To start with both Paul and Joanne are perfect hosts, nothing is too much for them, four members of our party where running late due to traffic problems and... More

The food was great, not massive portions on the starter front, but very tasty and good choice. The new owners seem really nice, taking an interest and engaging with you. The only thing that lets it slip from a 5 to a 4 star was the table service. Ordered drinks three times and each time they were wrong. Drinks missed,... More
