    Nice food. But why are dogs permitted in the restaurant? Dogs OK, but owners seem to think they can go anywhere and get too close to other diners who do not wish to be sitting next to smelly dogs whilst eating.

    We have been going to Ring O Bells for last couple of yrs obs lockdown permitted and there seems to have been a steady decline in the service This Sunday was poor and most tables were left with dirty uncleared plates, I eventually had to ask for table to be cleared, shame food was usual high std wasn’t busy but tables were simply ignored

    Very good value with 241 burgers on a Friday afternoon- and no skimping on quality! Staff were very helpful, dealt with queries andcrequests very well. Good atmosphere, nice food and not too busy. I recommend RoB- also a lovely setting in Christleton Village.

    I was a bit disappointed on this visit to Ring o Bells as having been many times before. The table was sticky and my fork was dirty on arrival to the table. I asked for a clean fork. The order was taken promptly but we were waiting around 50 mins for our food. Appreciate it was a busy night Food was excellent though

    I think it is a little expensive, particularly the steak. Sunday dinners - would be good if you could ask staff to offer, for example, Yorkshire puddings with other meats than beef. Overall we had a lovely time there - great for a special occasion. Very easy on line booking.

    Came in for Sunday lunch with the family. Everyone really enjoyed their meals and the roast with the trio of meats was amazing. Very tasty and bloody massive. Absolute winner. Washed down with a couple of pints. Look forward to returning.

    We were in the older section of the restaurant, it was a bit dull. We moved our seat from a doorway as we didn't want people pushing passed whilst we were eating. The service, food and staff were extremely good. We will certainly go back but will request a seat in the newer part of the building.

    Good choice of food in pleasant airy surroundings. The service was excellent and the food quality was well worth the prices. I thought it was somewhat noisy considering the restaurant wasn't full. There was a private party present but in a section away from the main dining area but even so, the noise level was still quite intrusive. Overall an very good dining experience.

    The food and staff were as good as usual but we were put in the room looking out on to the road, the room is fine but the table was sticky! It needed a good clean or sanding and revarnishing, everything including the menu cards were sticking to the surface.

    We wanted a relaxed early evening meal in a comfortable environment and this is just what we got plus great food. My parter had a beautifully light pizza with lots of lovely tasty cheese topping. I had a Buddha bowl with perfectly cooked rice, roasted veg & crispy mixed pulses. There is a very good choice of meals. Very good service (lot of staff) and great value …..

    We didn't mind being informed that the staff were really busy so food would take approx 45mins. But we did mind that people arrived later than us complained about the wait so got fed first and the waiter fawned all over them. Perhaps we should complain more!

    I was very disappointed with my Roast Beef dinner. It was cold, the beef was very Fatty, i even had extra gravy hoping that would warm my food, that was also cold. I won’t be going back for a Sunday Meal..
