“Lovely”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

Lovely meal.
Really good menu all sounding very nice.
The restaurant was happy to swap sides around a bit to customise the meal. Very friendly and helpful.
The complimentary loaf was also a lovely touch and tasted great.
Would definitely recommend.
Thank you

“Good meal good service”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

Groupon 2 course meal, would have been nice to trade starter for desert if desired. We came with 2 friends who were greatly impressed. Interesting and varied menu, the food we were served was good and the presentation was excellent. Vegetables had to be paid for extra to the deal if needed, but we had sufficient without. Very friendly, helpful staff.

Thank you for your review.

We are glad you enjoyed your meal with us. You are right that vegetables on our a le carte are extras. This is because, as you pointed out the meals are all complete with a potato option and vegetable so there is always enough.

We look forward to having you with us again soon

“The McPhail's Table”
Reviewed October 18, 2013 via mobile

We visit here every 3 Weeks at least for Sunday Lunch and the food is always excellent. The staff and management are always helpful and friendly. The service is second to none. This is shown by the awards they keep getting. We have taken many people on different occasions and they have always raved about everything. We enjoy the pleasant relaxed atmosphere and we are never rushed to finish our meal what ever time we have gone. Long may the continue giving this super service.

“Not up to expectations”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

Sunday 13th October 2013, sunday dinner with my wife and elderly mother at this establishment. Initially the service was excellent, we were shown to our tanle and our orders were taken within a couple of minutes of sitting down, Our meals arrived and the food was excellent ( an extra gravy boat on the table might be a good idea), after the main meal we were left waiting for over twenty minutes and I eventually had to ask one of the staff for a desert menu, ten minutes later our desert order was taken and it was a further fifteen minutes before desert arrived.
I was aware that a private party was sitting to dine shortly after we arrived and perhaps the staff were busy dealing with them but to my mind that is no reason to neglect diners who are obviously waiting to be served.
Our first time at the "ring 'o bells" and as first impressions go, the food was good but the service was lacking.

Thank you for your review. I am concerned to hear of the service you received. Whether there is a large party in or not we aim to give everybody the best service possible, just like you said you received when you first arrived. I apologise for the time it took to have your dessert order taken and trust, should you visit us again that this will not happen again.

We hope to welcome you back again soon

“Great food and great staff”

We had a lovely meal at the Ring O Bells, we had a lovely fresh baked loaf of bread to start with and it was really delicious. We then had a lovely meal very enjoyable and the staff were really helpful and friendly. We sincerely recommend trying it out.
