I had my 40th birthday party at the Ring O'Bells this weekend and it was a fabulous evening. We had the Glass House booked which was a perfect size and the decor is beautiful.

The staff were so helpful and attentive all evening, they had even thought of things like a present table and a table for our MP3 docking station which hadn't even crossed my mind. Everything was so organised and ran on time including the food and wine for a toast.

The food was delicious and was even better than I anticipated (their written buffet menu does not do them justice). Several of my guest commented on how good the food was. Fresh baked pizza and the Smoked Salmon was particularly popular.

I would certainly recommend the Ring O'Bells as a venue for any celebration as they really did make my night very special

My husband & I had a post valentines meal at Ring O Bells. We were made to feel very welcome, the staff were great all evening. The food was also excellent, we both had the steak which were perfectly cooked & very tasty. Overall a great experience.

After reading about the many awards this restaurant/pub had received, we decided to give it a try. We found it to be a very busy and atmospheric pub, in a really lovely village.

The menu didn't look that different from many other places, but we found that the food was really excellent. I had the chicken breast in a wild mushroom, chorizo and sherry sauce, served on a bed of kale. It was delicious...beautifully cooked with a real depth of flavour. The rest of our party had burgers and fish and chips. There were clean plates all round! We were all too full to sample the excellent sounding dessert menu.

The service was prompt, friendly and efficient.

We all decided that we had really enjoyed our dining experience and will definitely return. The next time we'll ask for a table away from the bar, as it was extremely busy and quite noisy at times.

I really wanted to like this pub, the staff were great, really friendly and welcoming. When we arrived they had already set the table with highchairs, colouring things and small tableware for the children.

The pub is lovely inside with a fantastic outdoor play area for kids..

But the food was pretty bad. Macaroni cheese in a bland, floury sauce that did not taste of cheese. Tasteless terrine. Fish and chips where the fish was so slimy we could not eat it. On a more positive note, the chips were lovely!.

We won't be going back. There are many places in the area serving much better food.

the 8oz steaks were more like 10oz, however apart from chips there was no veg. We used a tastecard so it wasn't too disappointing.
