Our party of six enjoyed a delicious meal on Saturday night. Bath was very busy due to a rugby match and Christmas market and the ring o bells was a welcome oasis. We enjoyed the cod daily special, rib eye steak (cooked perfectly) and finished off sharing cheese boards. The real ale was good and the wine choice excellent. The... More

We went here on Friday evening. I had an enjoyable steak with delicious chips, & my partner half a very tasty lamb dish. Service was excellent, dessert menu was a little limited but was of good quality

Was the 4th place we tried and so pleased it wasn't booked. Really friendly service. Food was beautiful and tasty. (Amazing Yorkshire Puddings). Lovely bright. light, and clean environment. I had two different types of beef, which were very tender. More expensive than your average Sunday dinner, but a nice treat.

Cannot fault this place if our first visit this evening is typical of the standard usually delivered! We had booked ahead for a Friday evening meal, and it's clearly a popular venue (was fully booked for the Saturday evening). The a la carte menu was not huge, but choosing was a challenge as everything sounded so tempting! One of us... More

Went for a lunch with friends. Some of us had 2 tapas dishes each which was plenty. Most tapas dishes were £5-7.50 each. Another had a starter that wasn't quite enough for a lunch. The mains were £15+ and more than we were looking for at lunchtime. A bit disappointing there wasn't a lunch menu with dishes under £8/10 but... More

We were let down by another venue 2 weeks before a 40th birthday party and the team at the Ring o Bells did an amazing job at stepping up to host it. Everyone had a great evening and the upstairs venue is perfect for this kind of thing. Very grateful to everyone there.

The food was well cooked and presented using good ingredients. The service and ambiance was relaxed. I found it a good place for lunch and it was excellent value. Car parking might be difficult at some times of the day, and it is a five minute walk out of the town centre.

Description
Situated in Widcombe, very close to the centre of the famous spa City of Bath, the Ring O Bells is a two minute walk from Bath Spa railway and bus stations, and close to Bath Rugby and Cricket grounds. Most definitely a locals favorite serving seasonal food using locally sourced ingredients, the Ring O Bells welcomes you with a warm, intimate atmosphere. A wide selection of beers, real ale from Moles of Melksham and international wines are available, along with delicious and varied menus including everything from generous tapas with homemade bread to Sunday Roast, plus a la carte fine dining and a good selection of vegetarian dishes. You'll find live jazz in the bar every Sunday evening, and events in the separate upstairs function room, which is also perfect for your private parties. This country feel gastropub with flagstone floors and large tables is a great place to meet with friends and eat good food at any time of the week. Adjacent to the River Avon and Kennet & Avon Canal, and close to Prior Park Gardens National Trust land, the Ring O Bells is also an ideal stop off point while exploring Bath.
