The Ring O' Bells
We like to test the creativity of our highly skilled chefs resulting in great dishes you’d be unlikely to find elsewhere. Unlike tapas it’s not about everything being brought to your table all at once but more about promoting a slow paced and relaxed dining experience whereby ordering dish by dish you can eat as much or as little as you feel comfortable.
At the Ring’O’Bells we endeavour to please, after all, what restaurant would be complete without steak! Alongside our small plates menu we are proud to offer a selection of selected steaks which we chargrill for an authentic flavour. Other offerings include roast diners available Sunday lunch time and live jazz every Sunday evening.
A lovely dinner: superb food, great ambience, and friendly staff!
Loved this place. The small plates are definitely NOT tapas, but more like you can plan your own tasting menu. Excellent wine recommendations too. The food was fabulous. Best meal we’ve had in Bath since living here for a month, and we’ve been out exploring a lot!
Loved the variation in the menu and the way the food is presented. It was suggested that we have 6 of the smaller plates between us and that was perfect. We shared everything although we noticed that
others seemed to eat just what they had ordered.
Food was exceptional
Exceptional - found through Trip Advisor and got lucky with a booking. Great opportunity to sample some delicious food
Excellent welcome, food and service. Very reasonable given we ordered the majority of the menu. Would strongly recommend
Absolutely fantastic meal - great choice (including for vegetarians) and all the dishes we had were imaginative, tasty and well presented. It's unusual in that you would typically order 3 "main courses" each, so they're smaller than a normal main, but you get the variety like you would with tapas, but without sharing :) It's more expensive than a normal pub meal (coming to £40 a head for us with the 3 mains & a dessert each, good bottle of wine, additional alcohol, soft drinks and a decent tip) but I wouldn't hesitate on going there again if we visit Bath in the future - it really was a special meal.
Not far from the railway station and decent place to eat with friendly staff. Take care when ordering. Make sure you know what you’re getting - we ordered too many dishes that were far too rich and difficult to digest.
The gnocchi was very bland. I think the concept of very small portions doesn't work. If I pay nine pounds for soup, I expect a full portion of soup, not a tiny dish. The salad was good The hanger steak was good. One lamb chop doesn't really fill the bill. My advice, switch to larger portions and charge whatever you must.
We loved this place. Been in Bath two years now and never ventured in and were blown away but the friendly greeting, the wonderful service and great food. Our new favourite place to eat in Bath! Thank you!
Very nice meal. Nice to have a menu that's a bit different! Really nice food and friendly service
Brilliant food....fantastic small plates with brilliant flavours
MUST try the squid with feta cheese stuffing
Staff are super friendly and atmosphere is great
Unusually interesting food realised to a high standard. The setting is much more pub-like than the food.
The most amazing food.
The best place to eat in Bath.
The small plates are just SO good. I have not tasted food this good anywhere else, ever.
I usually have two small plates, and my husband often does the same, or has a steak or an amazing roast, if on a Sunday. Despite the fact that the roasts look so good, I just cannot stop eating the stuffed squid! Since living in Bath these last 6 months, We have eater lunch here 9 times. It is just a hop behind the train station or a 15min stroll along the canal from the Holburne Museum. Highly recommend!
Great atmosphere and friendly staff. Portions are small but worth the price. Don't be put off by the location just out of the centre of Bath, absolutely worth the short walk.
The food, drink and service here were superb! The atmosphere was sophisticated but casual with no raised voices from other tables. I would highly recommend to give the Ring O bells a try and look forward to coming back soon. we opted for the tapas style plates and believe me I love my food but 6 plates plus 2 sides between 2 was MORE than enough!! The service was friendly and engaging and a lot of other restaurants could learn a thing from the staff here!!!
The “Small Plate” idea allows you to have a variety of dishes. There was a good selection and all the dishes we had were lovely. Something a little different with great service and a relaxing atmosphere.
We opted for the tapas menu, which enabled us to try lots of different dishes, including most of the vegetarian ones. They were the best. The Chorizo Cassoulet and the Mackerel Fillet were lacklustre. The portions are really quite small -- tapas size -- and unless you have a very small appetite, you will find yourself having to order three or more. Good for an informal family/friends' party.
Great selection of small plates which enabled me to try some more adventurous food whilst my partner could stick happily within his comfort zone with a good steak. Great wine, good service and restaurant was not frantically busy but nice gentle buzz of atmosphere. A great meal!
Excellent food, good service, had a great evening with my partner. Thanks!
Amazing experience, made the day special with flowers and proceco for the wife, great food and highly recommended.
