From the moment of pulling up I was disappointed. There is no proper parking, you have to find a space on the road - I feel sorry for the locals and then upon entering the pub it was noisy, hot and had several dogs barking. The pub has been decorated nicely and is in keeping with the building but the... More

I am saddened to read your review as we are all as a team so proud of our Sunday roasts as you can see from previous trip advisors most of our customers rave about them. Unfortunately being a pub in a small village we don't have the luxury of a giant car park that you may have at a Toby's,... More

At last a local we can rely on really nice pub food not trying to be a restaurant. Great atmosphere and lovely natural open fire . Staff brilliant! Nothing too much trouble . This will definitely be a pub we will visit regularly . Well done !

Went for a drive around the area and fancied a Sunday roast so checked this place out. On arriving we noticed lots of cars parked outside so thought it might be too busy for a table but we were in luck! The pub is small but there were a few tables left so we grabbed one and ordered food and... More

Food was excellent and staff very friendly, it was a very busy day but staff were helpful and food came out really quickly. Roast was served with an amazing selection of veg and the child's roast dinner was excellent value for money as were the adults portions.

We came looking for a traditional British Sunday roast with all the trimmings and that's exactly what we got. Couldn't fault the meal or the friendly service. Lots of options: Turkey, Gammon, Lamb but we chose the Beef topside (cooked overnight - was really tender and flavoursome and came with Yorkshire pudding), and the juicy Roast Pork with apple sauce...

Thank you for your kind review and it was such a pleasure to meet you and your family yesterday, I am so pleased you enjoyed your meal and also managed to meet our chef/owner Graham as Sunday's are so busy it's sometimes difficult for him to escape the kitchen but he does like to personally check that everyone is happy...

Description
Originally 3 cottages knocked into one, The Ring O Bells is a 14th century pub in the heart of the picturesque village of Wookey, 2 miles from the Cathedral City of Wells, the smallest City in the UK and 6.5 Miles from Cheddar & Glastonbury. The pub still retains it's original inglenook fireplaces and visible stone work. The pub was recently taken over earlier in 2016 by Graham and Denis who are both local to the area, Graham is our head chef and is quite famous round these parts for his fantastic food! You will always be welcomed with a great meal and a chance to sample one of our many local ales. With a friendly team, a mouth watering menu, a large range of beverages and a fantastic atmosphere we are sure once you have visited your only regret will be having to leave.
