We've eaten here before and never been impressed, but as a spur of the moment decision we thought we'd give it another try. It's really unclear as to how food is ordered, at the bar or table service, so we and many others after us sat for some time before heading to the bar. Wine wise there's nothing special or... More

Excellent service, great selection on the menu, and I particularly liked the 'choose your own' section where you could mix and match what you liked to go with the main meal. The portion sizes were excellent; I'm a big eater and even I didn't manage to finish the mixed grill!

My partner and I had lunch here on Sunday 12th October, we were given a very warm welcome by Donna and Paul. The food was excellent, I had salmon with vegetables and my partner had the mixed grill. Large portions and very cosy table spot In the window. Very good value and would definitely return very soon.

This property used to be a loch fyne which had to close down because of dreadfully overpriced poor food with even poorer portions,so having changed back to "pub grub"is it better? Alas sadly,not my partner asked for a Niçoise salad with salmon,"sorry we have none" but they could do a Cesar,how's that work? I had the lasagne which was miniscule... More

Visited today with a friend and received a very warm welcome. We discovered the Manager and Manageress had only just taken over. They were very pleasant and the food was very good. The menu has something for everyone and for all pockets. This won't be our last visit.

...went on Sunday about 3.30pm. I can certainly see why several others have complained about the ordering system and subsequent payment, there certainly wouldn't be enough staff at busy times...that said it wasn't that busy when we went, the service was perfectly pleasant, the waitress took the order at our table and when I enquired about how the Sunday roast...

Have been here a few times and the service is always excellent and the food pretty good. Tonight I had the fish and chips and it was excellent. Crisp batter, light flaky cod. Very tasty. Cooked to perfection. Paul, the waiter, was efficient, friendly and helpful. It was early evening so the restaurant wasn't very busy and there was a... More

Having visited here just for drinks a few times,I had noticed how understaffed this place is. This evening we decided to go and sit in the garden for a drink followed by an early evening meal,hoping that we would escape the busiest period. I have no problem with the quality of the beers/wines on offer,but the ordering system leaves a... More

I hate to leave a poor review but we had a terrible experience, almost all of it went from bad to worse. It was a Bank Holiday Monday, not too busy but lacking in staff. We waited for our order to be taken, we waited for our drinks order at the bar, we then waited longer to have our cocktails... More

Lovely staff make dining at the Ring O' Bells a real pleasure. Frm the bar staff to the restaurant staff, to the chefs in the kitchen, this is terrific value for money in West Kirby. I have dined here over 30 years, visiting from time to time, and the establishment has changed owners' hands several times in those three decades.... More
