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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Come in the pub frequently for football which is always on and why we come . . This particular Saturday afternoon the pub was showing rugby . On every single television !! When we asked the landlord to put football ( sky commentary ) on...one TV said he couldn't do it ?? Why not ?? The rugby was on ITV , why could one TV be put on sky to accommodate the people wanting to watch the football commentary ?? What's really poor , everyone in the pub talking about the football , not sure any one particularly interested in the rugby !! People walking in , asking if it's in and walking out again .... what a way to alienate customers and not run a businessMore

Lovely lunch with friends, fantastic atmosphere, very helpful friendly staff. I went for the full English and it was simply the best I’ve had in the year and half of being in Yorkshire. Massive shout out to the kitchen staff as the food looked and...tasted amazing. Highly recommend, I’ll definitely be going back.More

Terrible. We are a band who travel around all of Yorkshire playing gigs in different pubs. We had a gig booked at Ring O Bells for 6 months (booked for the 5th of November) which was confirmed by the manager. We loaded all of our...stuff into the van and made the hour drive it took for us to get there. Once we got there, we were told that a ‘yes you can play on the 5th’ wasn’t an actual confirmation, sending us home. If you are a band or performer and are offered a gig at this pub, be prepared for a let down and to be sent home. What an absolute joke.More

Popped in after a Boxing Day walk with family and was greeted by friendly staff and promptly found an area suitable for the large group. Service was table service only which made it a little difficult splitting the bills etc but nothing unmanageable. Quick service,...good pricing and lovely atmosphere.More

This is an extremely well run pub. We visited for the England semi-final and these events can often be challenging for staff and customers, however I felt the need to come on here and compliment how well prepared they were. There was a large number...of staff on hand to deal with high demand and this made service quick and efficient. Staff were all friendly and efficient which made our experience all the more enjoyable. The management were on hand to oversee everything and it was just an extremely well run operation. The food trucks outside have also been good (they have guest businesses visit each week) . They also had in-house pies available, which were nice and reasonably priced. Veggie options available. You can’t pre-book tables but there is plenty of space inside and outside to ensure high chance of getting a table around big events. There’s plenty of screens if you’re watching sport and the audio is good. We enjoyed our experience and would recommend a visit. We will return.More

Visited with my partner. Landlord very abrupt, rude and verging on aggressive. Steer clear if you want a pleasant drinking experience. Plenty more to choose from where you’ll feel welcome.More

I’ve been blessed to have multiple Christmas meals (not in succession) beginning at the White Horse in Bingley, then The Halfway House, then the Beeches at Keighley and finally at the Ring O’Bells in Shipley. By far and away the best meal to my grateful...surprise was the Ring O’Bells. I can thoroughly recommend it!!More

Called in here as the pub we used to go to for food had lost their chef/cook, we where not disappointed, the food was excellent , the beer was perfect, so was the service, my only gripe was, and it may be petty but as...there was four of us all the meals came together, so some had been standing for a while until the others where ready to come out, would be great if when ordering they/you/me could say when ready please bring the meals out, will definitely calling in here again, thanks once again to the landlady you where very understandingMore

Been here numerous times since the new management and think it’s fantastic! The food is fabulous the staff couldn’t do more for you and as for the owners.... they’re amazing! The atmosphere is great and even when they’re showing sporting events it doesn’t “take over”...the entire pub! I grew up in the area and generally always avoided the ringers and opted for saltaire, but now I come and visit family in the area and always make sure I go to the ring o bells!! Highly recommended!!!More

Although a friendly local pub, this was a really disappointing food experience. Four poorly cooked meals where minimal effort was exerted.

Been several times for drinks and food. Warm, friendly staff who cant do enough for you. The food is fantastic, service quick and faultless and reasonably priced. Would highly recommend Fish and Chips which are excellent valve especially on the deal night. The pub itself...is clean and welcoming with choices of areas to eat, sit quietly or watch sport. It is a credit to the new owners and staff, well worth a visit.More
