We received a very warm welcome, especially our Labrador. The room was clean and had everything that we needed, and the landlady even found books of local walks for us to borrow. The food and beer were excellent and the breakfast would satisfy the biggest appetite. Minor drawbacks; no car park but the public car park up the road is... More

Our room was clean and comfortable and looked out over the pub's beer garden. The staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfast was excellent. We really enjoyed our stay and intend to go back for a longer trip later in the year.

We recently stayed while visiting the Chagstock festival. Chagford is gorgeous and the Ring o Bells is at the heart of the village. The pub was welcoming and friendly. The room was charming and spotlessly clean. Bed was especially comfy. Breakfast was excellent and the service was second to none. Highly recommended :) Would definitely stay again.

Very good quality room with a superb view overlooking the square and the Moors beyond. Staff very pleasant and professional, breakfast and dinner both offered a wide choice for a hotel without a large number of rooms. And everything was cooked to perfection. Make sure you like dogs as they come with the staff and the pub regulars ... and... More

My sister and I had a genuinely warm welcome. Our room was spotless off a wide landing/sitting area where there are books, maps and laptop to read/use. Excellent breakfast. The only possible problem for some could be the long set of stairs to the bedrooms. There is a lack of pretension that appeals- a very good pub with rooms. I... More

We came across this village while on a Sunday drive and stopped in the Ring o Bells for some lunch, it was very welcoming and the food was good and well presented, we will be returning for Sunday lunch next time we visit the area.

Good plain food, cooked well, served with a smile. Staff pleasant. Pub basic but clean. Great for a quick lunch in a delightful town. Lots of locals which is always a good sign! Only problem (!) is parking but that's not unusual for Chagford!!
