“First class Sunday lunch!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

So much to choose from but if its Sunday it has to be roast for me. Perfectly cooked pork with crackling and a wonderful sausage and walnut loaf accompaniment. Lots of really well cooked vegetables and home made gravy. Service was quick and efficient. Who could ask for more. Try it you will not be disappointed.

“Surprisingly good!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013 via mobile

Having read really good reports here, we decided to dine, at short notice at the Ring of Bells. What a wonderful surprise, the menu looked to be unrealistically ambitious, but we were not disappointed. It exceeded our expectations and the cooking too! We had a great meal, good wine and all for around £50 for 2. Great value. There are many several good places to eat in Taunton and this is certainly up there. My husband says the beer is excellent also!

“What a surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

Decided to visit the ring of bell after seeing on tripadvisor what good reviews it got. We were a bit sceptical due to the pub being a bit of a local town pub. The restaurant is upstairs and it has a lovely feel about it. Now to the food , out of the four of us we all gave our food 10 out of 10 , the pasta I had was so tasty and the pesto bread was amazing. The hot pot was lovely and the meat tender. The bell burger was great so fresh and moist. The meal that got a 7 was my husbands chicken supreme although it was tasty it was a very small portion that to be honest needed some veg to accompany it or a deduction in the price as it was 13.95 which we all agreed was steep for what was on the plate. The service was good and the jugs of water a lovely touch. Will be returning again soon with a group of 12 friends so fingers crossed they will enjoy it as much as we did.

“Top Notch Food & Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

D.M.D is often received with confusion and uncertainty, but the waiting staff coped well when I ordered the chocolate tart for a starter... The whole meal was delicious, the atmosphere was good, and the 5 & 6 yr olds with us were made to feel very welcome. Would have been 5/5 but the vegetarian options were a little limited (but very tasty).

“prob` the best food in Taunton,”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

Had visited before, so booked again for 4 of us for a mid week evening meal,. easy to find, no prob` parking very locally, a lovely welcoming atmosphere, with genuinely welcoming professional staff, good selection of meals, (all courses). they were very helpful, so if there you wanted to mix and match with the menu, they would do there best to oblige... Our meals were delicious, ( 2 steaks and 2 chicken dishes) finished off with delicious home made/cooked deserts... When paying / leaving, a cheery good-buy, and a *thank-you" from the staff.-- made a most enjoyable evening. . this is now our new "favourite" place to eat... visit their excellent web site.
