This is a gastropub rather than a traditional local. We had a light lunch on Sunday, the quality was very good and reasonably priced. Within our group were two young children and the pub was accommodating. A couple of locally sourced real ales were available - both were well kept and served.

From entering the bar the service was excellent. Attention to detail was high . Just watch how they set the place settings. Then the food!! None of the usual microwave rubbish but real home cooked with high quality ingredients. Well worth a visit

Food was average. I had the salmon salad which was tasty but overpriced fir what it was. I was a little disappointed that the staff failed to warn us of the size of the garlic bread. We were a party of 8 and order 2 plain garlic and 2 with mozzarella. When they arrived they were huge and obviously far to much. Needless to say a lot if this was wasted ! Children's meals were fine and good value.

Thanks for taking the time to write a review & we appreciate your feedback. Although, I must admit it's the first time we have had a complaint about giving too much food! Seriously, though I also hate food waste, but it does say on the menu pizza garlic bread & they are pizza sized garlic bread.
We would love you to visit us again & hopefully on your next visit we can hit the 5 stars!

My family have recently moved back to the area and we thought we would walk down to the village pub...
The Ring O' Bells in Christleton has a very friendly atmosphere with tasty reasonably priced food (two pizza's for the price of one on a wednesday). We were surprised by how busy the pub was for a wednesday night - this is obviously a popular place to go! Even with the number of people there we were served quickly and didn't feel crowded.
Would really recommend trying this out - we will definitely be going again.

Came across this lovely pub by chance. Driving past it looked inviting and so we called in for a light lunch. Having the dog with us we sat outside in the pleasant garden area. The sandwiches and chips were delicious. A little pricey but you got what you paid for- freshly cooked and beautifully presented food. The burger was cooked to perfection and huge! Portions were spot on. Will certainly return again!
