Description: Situated in Widcombe, very close to the centre of the famous spa City of Bath, the Ring O Bells is a two minute walk from Bath Spa railway and bus stations, and close to Bath Rugby and Cricket grounds. Most definitely a family run pub and restaurant serving seasonal food using locally sourced ingredients, the Ring O Bells welcomes you with a warm, intimate atmosphere. A wide selection of beers, real ale from Moles of Melksham and international wines are available, along with delicious and varied menus including everything from generous tapas with homemade bread to Sunday Roast, plus a la carte fine dining and a good selection of vegetarian dishes. You'll find live jazz in the bar every Sunday evening, and events in the separate upstairs function room, which is also perfect for your private parties. This country feel gastropub with flagstone floors and large tables is a great place to meet with friends and eat good food at any time of the week. Adjacent to the River Avon and Kennet & Avon Canal, and close to Prior Park Gardens National Trust land, the Ring O Bells is also an ideal stop off point while exploring Bath.

“Good food, enjoyed the Sunday-night jazz”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

During our second stay at the nearby Appletree Guest House, we again ate here on the Sunday night. We were glad our B&B booked for us as it was very busy. It's a tapas-style menu on the sunday night; there was a good range to choose from and we enjoyed it very much. Service was very good, and the jazz was good but not so loud you couldn't talk easily.

“Glad we returned”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

Been a bit variable in the past but glad we came back for another visit. Food is usually good but the last time my meagre piece of fish was a bit of a disappointment and would barely have filled my eighteen month old grand daughter. No such problems this time. We were dining with friends who visit often and clearly there are a lot of regulars who have remained faithful. The staff are very friendly and the service was excellent.

Though we only had a main course this time we all thought it was excellent and left us wanting to make a return visit soon.

“Always Top Notch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

The Ring O Bells is one of my favourite places to eat in Bath. Great food, lovely staff, well kept drink, relaxed atmosphere - who could ask for me? If you only eat at one place when you visit Bath, make sure it is the Ring O Bells

“Great food, a bit pricey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

Had a great Sunday lunch. But either I've not gone out for a while or things are getting more expensive. Still the food was very good and so I guess you get what you pay for. I wasn't disappointed.
