“FABULOUS SUNDAY LUNCH”
Reviewed July 31, 2014

We called here on the off chance on Sunday to sample the Sunday lunch. The place was heaving so at first we were slightly concerned that we should have booked. Anyway they have two sittings- 12.30 and 2.30 and we arrived at 1.45 so we hit both sets of traffic. I spoke to the young man behind the bar who assured me he would find a table for us so we ordered a drink whilst we waited. You could see that all the people who were leaving had thoroughly enjoyed their lunch by the banter they were having with the chap who I now know as Clive, the landlord. We were quickly shown to a very nice table in the area by the bar and studied the menus. Not only do they offer the traditional Sunday lunch but they also have a specials menu on the reverse side. We both opted for the Sunday lunch, I had the a starter of spam fritters which were delicious and the beef and stilton pie that was to die for and my wife had the roast beef. The vegetables were superb, fresh and piping hot and we were told if you want additional veg please ask which I thought was a nice touch. All too often on a Sunday lunch the veg tends to be rather lacking but not here, four different veg all cooked to perfection plus roast potatoes which were proper roast spuds, not out of a bag!!! My wife said the roast beef was so lean and tender that it melted in her mouth and the gravy was 'just like mother used to make' so very tasty.I chose a dessert of crumble which in my opinion was one of the best I'd ever eaten in a restaurant and the crème anglaise was served separate in a jug which pleased me no end. The cost of the Sunday lunch is incredible too £13.95 for three courses or £10.95 for two no wonder it was packed out. The staff are adorable, attentive and very proficient at their job and they also smile which is lovely - service with a smile just like the good old days. We most certainly will be back and very soon too.

“Can't fault our experience.”
Reviewed July 28, 2014

Myself and my partner were looking for somewhere different from our usual haunts to have supper and chanced on the Ring O' Bells on the Internet. We saw that they were doing early evening offers but time was tight so we rang thinking we'd be too late but we're told they could squeeze us in.
The food was delicious and beautifully presented from start to finish (3 courses.) The staff were helpful and charming and just attentive enough without being a nuisance.
The beer was heaven, and lots of choice.
The pub is in a lovely rural setting (forget the 'Bradford' location !) and is a real gem. We were very pleased with ourselves for finding out about it and would recommend it to anyone - Yorkshire hospitality at it's very best, and it won't break the bank - something us Yorkshire folk appreciate !

“Fabulous towards amazing”
Reviewed July 28, 2014 via mobile

Visited the ring o bells for Sunday lunch with 3 friends as a birthday treat. The reputation for the superb fresh food and extensive yet carefully selected wine menu attracted us.... We were not disappointed!!
Upon arrival we were greeted by friendly faces, friendly other diners, and had a bottle of the Chilean Sauvignon blanc to start with.
The choice of food was quite broad and catered for all clientele, whether it be dishes from the á la carte menu or the incredible Sunday lunch offer of 3 courses for £13.95!!!
We all had lovely starters including beer glazed belly pork and traditional spam fritters (as I said- something for everybody)
As I'm no connoisseur of wine, just a lover of it, we were fortunate to draw upon the expertise and knowledge of the general manager, Stephen, who selected a Beaujolais and a chateaneuf du pape to compliment our wonderful lamb rump dishes, which were fantastic, with a medley of roasted vegetables and basil mash.
One of our party had the roast beef lunch which was cooked tender and she had to mop up the stock gravy so well it was made!!
Cheeseboard came and as I'm no fan of port, Stephen brought over a bottle of Chilean Rioja to finish!!
We're not alcoholics but we appreciate lovely wines.
Superb day, superb staff!!
Can't wait to go back
