Average food poor service

Food is average pub food from a managed pub. Tried to order salmon, out of stock, wanted a pint of IPA, out of stock. Customer service from staff poor. No apology or reason given. Need to do better if they want to build their reputation.

Often eat here as only 5 mins away. One thing I have noticed is the 2 for £10 Menu is very small in terms of options (think there is only 5 or 6 2 for £10 meals ) and also the portions of the 2 for £10 definitely seem smaller. The way to go is on the Burger and Grill... More

No reason to go here over Wetherspoons. Have always wanted to like each reincarnation of this restaurant but it's not worked.

Had a lovely meal with family at this pub over the weekend. My starter was so tasty ( Mushroom with cream sauce) Would definitely recommend it. Everyone seemed to enjoy there big sharing platters too. Main meals all came out together even though we all ordered separately, which impressed me. Staff where very helpful and I would go there again.

Called last Wednesday for a celebration meal. The quality of the food was reasonably good and although presented nicely my beef and ale pie was cold in the middle. My other guests had the vegetarian option and my wife had chicken and all were pleased with the quality. The only issue was the restaurant was too cold and we had... More

this was for a birthday meal with friends. It is an old pub with a nice atmosphere. The food was basic pub food but was very good. The staff were friendly and it was very relaxing.

Very much enjoyed our Christmas day at the Ring O'Bells this year. Food was hot and tasty, Staff polite and attentive and the atmosphere was very pleasant.... well it was untill some old nut case (Im guessing 'Milly T') decide to rant and rave to every customer in the place about how her dinner was completely ruined by sour cabbage...

It's not the best day to get a meal after the celebrations the night before. The staff were busy but friendly ,reacting to requests promptly and agreeably. We were not hurried at all even though they could have filled our table. We were pleasantly surprised how relaxed the place felt and think that sometimes you have to accept that some... More

Our family enjoyed a pre-Chrstmas meal and other than having to wait an hour for our main course to arrive, we were happy with the quality of the food. The waitress should take some lessons from the manager's wife and smile a bit more and make the customers feel welcome. Until milly t (in her Christmas dinner" ) critique improves... More
