We went on a Friday so 2 for 1 burgers was on offer. Went for this, John had the special beef burger and i had the veggie burger, both very much enjoyed! Ordered a side salad between us to accompany burgers - this was a bit heavy on dressing for my liking but fine. Olive starter was very nice. The veggie burger was probably the tastiest I've had in a while - delicious! John had the special mango mousse dessert which was beautifully presented with shortbread biccy and raspberry syrup across the top and went down well. I couldn't manage a dessert, I was too full! Surprised to see in small print that all the chips are fried in beef dripping, but alternative oil can be used on request. I was assured that the veggie burger would come with meat-free chips as a matter of course, but I think other people would also prefer chips cooked without beef fat, so maybe this option should be more obvious? Just a suggestion! Enjoyed our visit to the Ring o Bells and we'll be back!

We went for lunch for my son's birthday and they placed us outside given the weather was glorious in a booth. The service was excellent and very friendly team.

The food here is so good the meat and fish were cooked so well, no chewy bits and perfectly to our taste. My dad had the lamb with halloumi, it looked so good, husband had a steak sandwich which he enjoyed very much but being such a foodie he would have liked the focaccia toasted, but he still really enjoyed it very much. My sons had fish and chips and the other the southern fried chicken sandwich. Everyone really enjoyed their meals, I had a cup of tea, they use tea leaves so it was really good. The food came in good time and we really had a very nice time. Ambience is good there too. Thank you

We came for Sunday lunch and had a table booked inside. We hadn't realised it was going to be such a hot day but we were happy with our table and the doors we open with a lovely breeze coming in. The staff are so lovely. They came and took drink orders straight away and gave us enough time to choose from the menu. My husband and I had the roast dinner. We both had the beef and it was really delicious. A tray of veggies and giant yorkshire pudding and mash, roasties, parsnips, gorgeous gravy! We will be back for this! Our three sons had different burgers and said they were really good as well. Again, lovely place and fantastic, helpful staff. Thank you. Mr and Mrs Pooler and Family

Great spot for a lovely summer meal. We sat in the bell tent which was lovely and was set up with fairy lights. Did venture to the main restaurant which was beautifully decorated. The food menu was great and the food was tasty. The pkaypark was great for the children. Would recommend.

Affordable and delicious, Ring O' Bells is a comfortable dining experience that I would recommend to many.

Only issue was the noise level as it was hard to distinguish conversation at the table from surrounding sound.
Also, there were large gaps of time between service but that can be due to high volumes of customers that day so take that with a grain of salt.

Evening meal booked with family members. Generally a good evening , but the southern fried burger was a little strange and the chicken edges were tough ans stringy. The trifle dessert with water cress on the top was also disappointing due to appearance and flavour.

Great service and starters ( crab tacos) were very nice.
My eggs benedict was good but would have been better if the muffin had been toasted. Eggs poached beautifully and lots of smoked salmon and sauce. My husbands fish and chips were disappointing. Fish did not seem deep fried ( it was hot in some places and cool in others) and batter inside a bit soggy in places. Chips were very dry and tasteless and definitely not fried in beef dripping. Staff very pleasant when we pointed this out and took price of meal off ( even though we said we would pay for it).
May give it another chance as I have had some good lunches here in the past.

Returning after the pandemic after enjoying it many times prior to be extremely disappointed by the service, the food and the bill.

Very few starters available and the special was £7.25. Far too expensive for 2 croquettes.
Main courses, southern fried chicken burger, no seasoning at all ,,, southern fried ???? , added bacon total cost £15.25.

Gammon and egg edible but not great. Can't remember the exact price but approx £13.

Few dessert choices, again expensive.

Total bill £54+, definitely will not be returning.

No warm welcome!
We were seated by the toilets which wafted a 'toilet duck' type smell every time the door was opened so we asked if we could move which was not a problem.
Sadly, there was no atmosphere in the dining room not helped by the odd choice of music.
The service lacked any emotion oe enthusiasm and just left us feeling, well, nothing really.
Food was pub grub and did the job.
Unfortunately we won't be rushing back.

We had a very pleasant meal here on Saturday early evening. The pub is very nicely designed mixing the old building with a glass fronted modern extension and a lovely place to be. Service was attentive and the food was nicely presented. We were staying at the nearby Mercure Abbots Well Hotel and it was a 10 min walk only. The village of Christleton is very nice too. Thank you to all the staff for giving us an enjoyable evening.

Booked a week ago for table for 5 inc 2yo. It took an hour and 20mins for Mains to arrive. Too long. Food is excellent and staff helpful but no one was honest how long it would be. Spoilt the evening, food excellent but pubs get greedy packing in more than they can manage.

First time to visit Ring O Bells and my Son had suggested it for Sunday Roast. We all thoroughly enjoyed it from start to finish and I can honestly say it's one of the best roast dinners I have ever had so we will definitely go back 👍👍👍👍
