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.

Loved our two nights here with our family and friends (we had booked all five rooms). Everything was perfect - location, staff, rooms, bar, restaurant. More food for breakfast than we could eat - all absolutely delicious, as was the three-course dinner we had on Sunday night. Staff had to cope with us practising 'Bistromaths' (Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy)... More

We had the pleasure of staying at this charming establishment for two nights with our family. From start to finish our stay was first class. The accommodation was fantastically presented, very clean and had all the facilities we required. A warm welcome from the staff and truly delicious, and very generous, breakfast and evening meal. It would be fair to... More

Booked this accommodation to meet up with friends. The rooms were spotlessly clean and just a little querky, which was really nice. We ate in the restaurant and had a fabulous meal, finest quality ingredients and expertly cooked to perfection. Our only slight complaint was the time we waited for our meal, we sat down at 7.30 and finally got... More
