I live down the road from The Bells and I think it's a real shame that both the quality of the food and the service has got gradually worse over recent months. After the Bells reopened following some redecoration a couple of years ago the food was excellent and The Bells had a great reputation, but the last 4 or... More

We visited ROB on Sunday for tea. A few people had warned us  that the service was bad and that the food had gone downhill. Forever the optimist, and having had some lovely meals there over the last few years, we went ahead with the booking. The critics were right. We arrived 5 mins late and were under no pressure...

Went tonight and the food which we always love was as if it was cooked by a different chef, does anyone know if the chef has moved on and if so which pub. Most of the staff nice and friendly and nice pub but the chef made it for us as we are more for the food!

It is such a shame to write this because the food and the staff that served on us were lovely. I have to say though that due to the drunken yobs using the pub (one of them actually walked straight into the back of my car), the parking, which is apalling with cars just dumped here there and everywhere in...

We have visited to eat here many times since this pub was taken over by the current owners, including the gourmet foodie evenings which are put on occasionally in the upstairs function room and until tonight have had good pub food with excellent service. Tonight we arrived as we usually do on spec and we're surprised to find the pub... More

We have visited the ring o bells twice recently but many times previously. We have never been disappointed. The food was excellent, Tuesday curry night is well worth a visit. Good play area for kids and the kids meals were good quality and value. The chicken and fish in the dippers is really tender and tasty not processed rubbish. The... More

Good food and service, didn't like my meal being served on wooden board. Food should be served on plate for hygiene purpose, never the less food was good. Would visit again.

Good quality pub food. It's not a gastro pub, but I did not want that. I liked the chips, they were just like when you cook them at home, cut up by hand from real potatoes and deep fried by an amateur - and they didn't make a fuss over marketing them either like some places. Spot on and surprisingly... More

We went as it had good reviews and space at short notice on a Friday night. We ate early but there were plenty of diners doing the same.The bar was busy, vibrant and a little noisy. The staff were excellent. Our food was very good. We didn't wait long, the plates were piping hot and the portions were good. We... More
