“Excellent beer, excellent food, excellent service”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

My wife & I visited this pub on a the off chance but were so glad we did. The pub itself is "Olde Worlde" but clean, bright and friendly. The food was excellent, very reasonably priced and the service was exemplary.
Brilliant!

Room Tip: Didn't stay in the pub - just had lunch.

We quite regularly visit Chagford but are not often able to stay. However we were so glad that we decided to stay at the Ring O'Bells, just a shame we could only stay for 1 night! Had Room number 2 which was comfortable and suited our needs. Good supply of tea/coffee etc & some lovely shortbread! Had a delicious meal on the night we stayed and breakfast the following morning was very tasty indeed. There was live music in the bar on the night of our visit and combined with meeting up with a very good friend of ours who lives and has his business in Chagford, it was a really great night!!! The staff were friendly and we would certainly recommend anyone to stay here. Hopefully we can also do so again one day.

Room Tip: As we have only stayed in Room 2 we can only advise that it was very quiet as it was at the back

We've just spent a couple of nights at the Ring O'Bells and really couldn't fault it. Our room (number 4) was spacious, clean, had a shower AND a bath and had a really comfy bed. We had dinner on the first night and it was delicious, home cooked fare. The breakfasts were very good too.

The staff are so friendly and efficient, nothing was too much trouble for them.

All in all, a delightful little find and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend a stay there.

We have been dropping in here for lunch now and again for the last 15 years and have rarely been disappointed. It seems to have found a niche in the pleasant little town of Chagford, with good service from well trained staff and delicious reasonably priced food. We sat out in the courtyard garden today along with a few other people and enjoyed a couple of dishes from their light lunch menu, beautifully cooked fish in crispy light batter, excellent.

Food was lovely - steak was perfectly cooked and very tasty and all four of us enjoyed the meal (the dog also enjoyed his treat!)

Special mention for the waitress who was very friendly - it really added to the general experience.

We don't live too far away from Chagford and we wanted lunch out for our anniversary. We wandered around, having a look at the lovely village, and decided on the Ring O'Bells. It was a glorious day, sun was out and the barman (Max) suggested we might like the garden, it was a lovely setting, we were not alone but we had a most enjoyable meal, all freshly cooked ingredients and tastefully presented. The staff were also very helpful.

Great meal, great price and lovely quiet garden to enjoy it in. Thank you.
