I booked a short while ago room number one at the ring of bells . a treat for my Wife's birthday. We have dined here a few years ago on our honeymoon and suggested we one day return with our two dogs . The room was spacious and in keeping with this 13 century thatched roof inn . Great food...

After being shown to our room (5) we soon realized that not only was the bed a small double, but the t.v. didn't work! My partner mentioned it and one of the managers came up to check it, and offered us the room next door(4), which had a larger bed, a much smaller t.v. and nowhere to hang any clothes.... More

We had a late lunch for 24 people outside of their usual serving hours. They were more than happy to accommodate us and the food and service was exactly what a lovely country pub should have. We had pre chosen a set menu and everyone's food was great. It was the day before our wedding and a lovely local man... More

Had a wonderful evening meal at the Ring of Bells. Service, food and ambience were all excellent. Highly recommend a visit. Overall much better (and less expensive) than the local grand hotel. Loved it!

We were large party lunching on Mothers Day. Young children were kept happy, vegans and meat eaters alike were pleased with wonderful food. Very busy but some very professional preparation ensured this popular Sunday at the Ring of Bells went really well! A great pub, we will be back! A lovely spot for a pre or post lunch stroll as...

So I stayed at a local hotel around the corner called the Bovey Castle! It was my 3rd stay. Myself & the wife love it there, but the food is always awful! After a lovely walk, you find this place. What a cracker! We always go for the steak or the fish & chips with homemade pea purée. We have... More

Wonderful stay in a beautiful place. Service,staff, food and rooms were beyond expectations. The menu for dinner was fabulous with a wide and reasonably price wine list.Our room was absolutely beautiful and very well equipped. Highly recommended and we will return soon.

We decided to visit after reading reviews on TripAdvisor. What a beautiful, romantic place set near the village green. All very immaculate but problematic trying to find a parking space. There is a free small Car Park nearby but it was full even though we had missed the busy lunch time. We had a late sitting for Sunday lunch but... More

We had a mid week break in early Feb. loved everything about this Inn. We arrived with our dog who was given a huge welcome. Very dog friendly venue. We were given a choice of rooms and opted for room 4 which has easy access to the gardens for our dog. The room was large and spacious. Local produce and... More

Everything about this lovely old pub - location, rooms, food, beer, service, staff - is excellent. Great that our dog could enjoy it too. The village is exquisitely pretty, the staff friendly and professional, and the food delicious. I loved the vegetarian dish I had.
