Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Sadly it is all to rare you come across a pub/restaurant that not only meet your expectations but exceeds them For me the Ring O bells was just that. The outward appearance of the pub is not that inspiring nor indeed the first corridor, but...through the pub things greatly improve Make no mistake this is a well run and spotlessly clean pub, with really great enthusiastic service Being on holiday in the area finding somewhere to eat especially a Sunday roast can often be a problem---not here Not only was there plenty of food (more vegetables than I could count), but really well cooked The waiting staff were proud of the pub and very keen to impart the provenance and details of the meat. Nothing was too much trouble If ever you are within driving distance do not miss an oppurtunity to visit this gemMore

What a lovely find this was for us during our holiday. We went today to celebrate my birthday and it was curry night. We enjoyed the best pickle tray, pakoras and poppadoms I have ever had and the pork curry was amazing too - very...tender. Hubbies ox cheeks meal was lovely too. Well done on making my birthday so special, and when we are in Cornwall again we will most certainly be back!More

We are lucky enough to live in the town and always book the ring of bells when family visit. Sarah and Lucy are so helpful and know everything there is to know about the content of their food and where it’s sourced. You are in...for a treat if you book her, we have never been disappointed with the food. The staff are amazing. Well trained, friendly and nothing is too much trouble. I have allergies and am incredibly picking with my food, but if you don’t like something, just say and they will do their very best to supplement for something else within reason of course. They have a great cocktail menu! Their kids menu is amazing but they will do a small portion of food outside of this if you ask! Oh and Lucy’s onion rings are to die forMore

Everything about the Ring o Bells was memorable. Fantastic fresh homecooked food served by very attentive staff for whom nothing was too much trouble.. We both agreed it was the best vegetarian Sunday lunch we've ever had and there was plenty of choice (not always...the case for we vegetarians). Already looking to book again in very near future.More

The Ring o bells is a hidden gem. Very nice friendly and efficient staff. It was our sons birthday and the food was beautiful, great produce cooked with a lot of care and pride, the chef clearly has real passion for her food. The mushy...peas were unbelievable not to mention the haddock and steak. All piping hot and so full of flavour. Lovely desserts too! First time coming here but will be certain toreturn. Would recommend to anyone even based on our one visit.More

We had a lovely weekend away in Cornwall and wanted a nice Sunday roast before we headed home! This lovely pub was recommended on trip advisor so thought we would give it a go and so glad we did! It has to be one of...the best Sunday roasts we've ever had anywhere! Everything we had was so tasty I had the roast beef and my husband had the roast pork! Even though the portions were big, we were determined we were going to have a delicious home made dessert so we had crumble and bread and butter pudding and these tasted so good! Cannot recommend this place highly enough and will definitely be back with the family when we are staying nearby again.More

Excellent food, excellent beer. Served by outstanding staff. 10 out of 10. If you want to fault the place you have gone to the wrong Ring O bells!! We (all eight of us) had not one complaint. Not a spare table in the place. Say...no more. Look forward to revisiting the pub next time we are in the area.More
