The Ring O Bells really is a traditional English Inn, historic, thatched roof, in an idyllic Devon village, church, pub, village green, thatched cottages, not a satanic mill in sight but Blake’s words entered my subconscious. If I was asked to recommend a traditional English Inn this would be it. Far from the madding crowd, do not trust your Sat... More

Stumbled upon this hotel/restaurant and booked a table for that evening. We certainly we're not disappointed. The menu is tempting and the meals presented were delicious. Cosy and friendly atmosphere with helpful staff. The whole experience was excellent.

We spent two nights the the Ring of Bells Inn and enjoyed them very much. It is off the beaten track and therefore very quiet. It makes for a relaxing sleep. The pub is frequented by the locals and has its own special atmosphere. The food and the drinks served are very good. North Bovey is an ideal place to... More

Wonderful pub with superb, well priced food. Richard the landlord is very hospitable and the whole experience is first rate. Good beers, fabulous countryside for walking, running and cycling. Nog to be missed.

The Ring of Bells in North Bovey is an unmissable gem! There are no street lights, no traffic lights, no shops, no noise in the town! Just the 5 bedroom inn : The Ring of Bells - right out of a postcard with its thatched roof, low ceilings, uneven floor and black wooden beams that anyone over 5'9 will crack... More

The Ring of Bells in North Bovey has the advantage of being in one of the most beautiful parts of the West Country. It also has the advantage of being quite charming. There is nothing flashy here. It is still a pub for the locals and there were a fair number in to watch the World Cup Final at the... More

Stayed one night using 4 rooms with cycling mates and I must say there can't be many more quintessential English setting as North Bovey and the ring of bells. The Inn is truely welcoming with great rooms and great food which almost made it a shame to go cycling across Dartmoor !

We stayed at the Ring of Bells for three nights. We found the staff to be helpful and friendly. We ate in the pub every night and every meal we had was superb, breakfast was also very good. The pub also had a real 'local pub' feel with many locals going in just for a drink. The room we had... More

We stayed for a couple of nights during a walking weekend, and ate in the restaurant both nights. The pub is set back from the village green in its own courtyard, which looks like it has had a recent make-over. We had a great time – the staff were great, really friendly and helpful, the bar was surprisingly lively for... More

We had an enjoyable stay at this unpretentious pub. We were met by friendly welcoming staff on arrival. The room was large, clean and had everything we needed. Our meals, supper and breakfast were fine. We were served by really helpful staff.
