We enjoyed a lovely lunch one Saturday while holidaying on Dartmoor. A warm welcome, good beer (although limited choice) and very good, locally sourced, lunch menu ensured we had a great experience. There were one or two interesting things on the menu such as kedgeree alongside the pub staples of bangers and mash etc. children's menu was also good and... More

As previously explained we visited the Ring of Bells in February and had such a lovely time we immediately booked all 5 rooms for the 16th March so we could invite friends to come and celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. Richard, the owner, made it so easy to complete the booking and we all arrived Sunday morning to a warm... More

I went to the Ring of Bells with my partner and a friend. It is a lovely little village pub that does brilliant food. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming, with friendly locals and enthusiastic staff. We started with the nachos, with a sweet chilli twist; then I had a beautiful fish and chips, and my partner had the pork... More

We entered a very loud bar in which everyone appeared to be talking over each other. We were warmly welcomed though. We had a local ale and a bottle of wine presented unopened. This was cold and for want of a better idea warmed up under a hot water tap.The area we sat in was very chilly. We had to... More

A lovely inn with cosy log burn warmed public rooms. We enjoyed the warm welcome and friendly staff, creating a relaxed atmosphere with some gentle teasing of the Landlord (Richard) by the locals! We were pleased we chose to come back here after nearly three years to find they still produce wonderful meals. There were interesting choices for each course,... More

Look no further than the Ring of Bells. We have eaten there several times now, and cannot recommend it highly enough. Whatever you order, be it a simple sandwich, a Sunday lunch, or anything else from the menu - the food is superb, the portions substantial, and the service excellent. I would recommend booking on a Sunday for lunch. It... More

What's not to like about this pub - it's beautiful, in a quaint village (North Bovey) right on the moor, and serves lovely, home cooked pub classics. We visited in early Feb, with the two dogs - we were given a warm welcome (a pleasant change considering the terrible weather the locals had been experiencing of late) and offered seats... More

This was my second visit to The Ring of Bells and this time it was to stay for two nights. This is the quintessential old Devon pub with a really warm and welcoming feel to it. The small bar stocks a couple of delightful well kept real ales, and a good range of well priced wines. Not surprisingly it is... More

If you are in this area and searching for a pub lunch, then not only can you enjoy a great pint of real ale, but the sunday roast really is excellent. We ate there last Sunday and as one of our guests was a vegetarian who ordered the roast beef with the beef on a seperate plate, we added to... More
