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.

“Great food and lovely ambiance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

Went for Sunday lunch at the Ring O Bells with friends who are regulars. The menu had a very good variety for all three courses. Three of us required gluten free options and the owner was very knowledgeable and offered to make the sauces to accommodate us. The food was delicious. The staff who are the owners, very friendly and obviously enjoy their work. Will definitely go back next time we are in Bath.

“A really good gastro-pub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

1 minute walk from the Bath Spa station. Tiny on the outside, but inside is a large bar/eating area. Staff are intelligent and funny. Interior décor looks contemporary, while avoiding the IKEA style.

The menu is huge for a place like this. I am commenting therefore on the tapas menu. There are around 12 tapas options and between 7 of us, we ordered nearly all. All very tasty and my paprika potatoes with garlic sauce went down very well with some baked chorizo and a local beer. Recommended.

“Consistently great food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

This is by far one of the best little pubs in Bath. Mike, the owner has been to charm school and it shows. He remembers what you like, where you like to sit and is incredibly good at his job.
The food is really very good, great little tapas if you only want a light meal and good selection of locally sourced food.
When Mike is away, the wonderful brother and sister team look after you with great charm and warmth.
A pleasure to support this local business.
