Came here this evening with my wife to check out the pub as we're intending to return with a group at the weekend. We were really impressed by the warm welcome and the quality of the food. This is definitely a place to watch and isn't bog-standard pub grub. The meat is really top quality. Proper hand-cut chips (none of... More

Not sure if you have recently visited but the new owners are brilliant. Really helpful and go out of their way to make sure the evening is a success. Relaxed and warm. The food they provided as a cold selection was lovely and the hot pot and curry really hit the spot on a cold wintry November night. Thoroughly recomend... More

We booked the Bells as the vennue for post-funeral refreshments after saying farewell to our Mum at the end of October and they did us proud. The welcome was extremely warm, the premises really lovely, and the staff brilliant too (they couldn't do enough for us, and no request was too much trouble)! The hot & cold buffet provided was...

We didn't eat here as we were waiting to go on a Lancashire canal Cruise from the pub. The staff were friendly and they have a very good selection of real ales, inclu Hobgoblin on draught . The pub has a very friendly & relaxed atmosphere and not full of TVs, which is a bonus for us & makes a... More

We went here this evening for a family meal. We all had absolutely lovely food especially the 6HR slow cooked short rib with BBQ glaze, hand cooked chips, garlic bread and coleslaw for £9.95...amazing! The fish was delicious too in the kids meal. Food took a while but was clear all cooked freshly and piping hot so well worth the... More

I can highly recommend the dining experience at the Ring 'o' Bells. Superb roast beef for my Sunday dinner after working all day outdoors hit the spot very nicely. Friendly, welcoming staff and an excellent choice of craft beers.

My parents took me here for a Sunday lunch after hearing it was under new management. I was a bit dubious as my previous experience some years ago was poor. It's very good indeed, certainly way above standard pub food fare - very fresh perfectly cooked vegetables, generous portions and quality juicy meat, all at very reasonable prices. They were...
