Seemed disorganised, lots of staff but poor service. Pre booked and ended up in less well maintained bar area.

Food was very good and enjoyable, will return, but avoid buying wine due to high cost in my view compared to other restaurants we eat at.

Overall experience very good. Outdoor seating booths ideal for our party including 3 year old and baby. Food very good although children's meals a little pricey. Nice ambience and good safe play area. Would definitely return.

Friendly staff, interesting menu (perhaps not to every taste), plenty of vegan and vegetarian options. 241 on pizza on Wednesday, and on burgers on Fridays. Good choice of beer and lager, prompt service and tasty food.

We have eaten here several times and always had a very nice meal. The staff are friendly, efficient, and helpful, and the food is always hot, well-prepared, and delicious.

We love the overall ambiance of the restaurant and will be back for more!

Always amazing food - steak sandwich, delicious, and you cannot fault the roast dinners. Lovely restaurant, great staff and the kids love the play area too - winner! Always a family favourite for us.

Good venue achieved very enjoyable night. A little disappointed that Chicken supreme dish was not white sauce as tradition but a tomato sauce never known this before. Other than that a good evening experience was had by all.

I usually like to be supportive of small businesses but this meal was just average at best

Pizzas had an odd possibly cheap tomato sauce which made them difficult to enjoy , the taglatelli came with a tiny piece of chicken which was £6 extra making it over £16 and was not worth the money and the sauce was watery

The bar was piled up with dirty glasses which made it look really scruffy - felt it was pointless saying anything the person who took the money did not enquire if we had enjoyed the food so I think in general pubs need to start upping their game as the pandemic excuses and lack of staff etc are wearing thin - Sorry I could not recommend the Ring o bells at the moment

We ate early booked for 12 noon table and highchair already for us. The gentleman who took us to our table and our payment at the end of our meal was lovely and friendly. The waiting staff girls were very attentive. The menu had a great choice and although we just had a sandwich and wrap it was delicious. The side order of mac n cheese which we ordered for our grandson was yummy as he ate nearly all of it! And hubby loved the fries!

Good service and food.... 2 for 1 on pizzas on a Wednesday too so an added bonus! We had a table in the tipi which was so lovely and a rustic feel. Menus were available on line using a QR scan but paper menus were also available if preferred. Car park was so busy so I had to park down the road but was just a short walk so not too bad.

The food options were very limited for the price.
We’d asked for a table outside as we were bringing a dog along. We were seated under the tent canopy and asked about the 3 booths which were all free at the time of arrival. We were informed that they were booked out so were then seated within the tent area which was boiling. The table was sticky even after staff had cleaned it for us, and very wobbly with the uneven floor outside under the makeshift carpet.
We only ate mains as we were all too hot sat under the tent & when we left the 3 booths were still empty.
The staff who served us were brilliant and tried to accommodate all of our requested.

Excellent food and service as always and some lovely cocktails. The only down side I would suggest is that the wine list was a bit limited in terms of champagne

Lovely burger was had. Delicious, moist & great value for money due to the 2 for 1 burger deal on a Friday.. Service was good & the pub is nice inside & out. The car park is a bit tight & busy but I would definitely return.

Amazing food!! Went for 2 pizzas and the garlic bread with a size of salt and pepper chips, was not expecting the size to be as big as it was!! The only reason we left some was the fact there was way too much for us to finish! Staff were so friendly and made the experience pleasant and enjoyable! Total value for money as well!! Would definitely reccomend Ring O Bells to anyone visiting the area!

Unfortunately this was not the service, food quality and experience we had had recently. Two meals were replaced and the service (except manager) was very poor. We were seated in the teepe and it was very noisy.
A disappointing visit.

Lovely venue and very helpful, pleasant staff. The food was of decent quality, but not as good value as at the Cholmondeley Arms.

The online booking system is excellent, as it saves having to make a phone call and potentially frees up staff at the venue, which is a smart way of working.

I love going to Ring o Bells, but this table might have been a bit close to the speakers for us. Especially when a long techno sounding background track came on.. it was a bit unusual!
