We(a group of 4 friends) have been to this restaurant many times and have had some lovely food there. However, we have noticed on our last couple of visits that standards are slipping. Last night(Tuesday) we arrived and the restaurant was very quiet but were made welcome by the two members of staff in attendance. Two steak, kidney and Guiness... More

Thank you for your review. I have spoken to the ladies who were working and they are shocked to hear your comments. Mainly because nothing was said on the evening. As you discovered with the tea, if something is wrong and we are told we shall deal with it straight away. As they weren't told about the food there wasn't... More

Friends had warned that this place had gone down hill: it used to be busy but there were few tables occupied on a Friday lunch. They got my order wrong and thankfully didn't charge in the end for the awful dish they did serve up. They supplied a large loaf of bread to start - which we didn't order -... More

Thank you for your review. The dish you were served wouldn't be classes as awful, just not what you had expected and I understand you don't like goats cheese therefor it wasn't for you. A mistake was made on our half, which we excepted and therefore you weren't charged for your meal. As you will read from the majority of... More

Great atmosphere and good food. Sunday lunches, all home cooked, are amazing value - £5.95 for a right royal traditonal roast dinner.

We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience at the Ring O'Bells. We were offered good service, good value for money because we used our Groupon voucher and we enjoyed traditional hearty fare. We would come again, with or without a voucher. It's a few years since we had last visited and it was great to see that the food, service and... More

Visited The Ring 'o' Bells as we had a discount voucher. The welcome was friendly and there was a nice atmosphere. The food was delicious, especially the smoked haddock scotch eggs. We had a really enjoyable meal and felt really welcome. We will be visiting again even without a voucher.
