If you, like me are of a certain age, then you will remember (hopefully fondly), the Ring O' Bells for the traditional Christmas party from work and as a place to take elderly relatives for lunch. In the past, it was always busy and although well known and frequently visited by all locally, nothing special.......... We knew it had been... More

Apparently this restaurant pub has recently changed hands and by all counts it's a great improvement. On a cool December day we entered a warm and welcoming room and we were given the choice of eating in the bar or restaurant. We went for the latter and were soon given menu's and that was my first misgiving of the day,... More

Having read recent good reviews we thought we would give the Ring O'Bells a try. We were informed that the place had just reopened after a bit of modernisation. The pub area looks really cosy but we opted to sit in the restaurant. From the moment we arrived the staff were extremely warm and friendly. The beer was well kept... More

We came here and found a gluten free menu and different food, the paté was fab with gluten free crackers even without asking which to me is excellent.

We've been three times since our last review, and found the food and staff very much improved. Beer's not bad two ethier. We've had a selection of starter's, main's and sweet over our visit's and enjoyed all. Just short of a bit of modernisation. Good luck for the future.

This place keeps getting better and better ....called in for Sunday Lunch the place was buzzing ... our meal was excellent and we're really looking forward to coming back after the refurb, seen the plans going to be fantastic. Staff, Paul and Jo are extremely friendly and nothing seems too much bother. Definitely a Jewel in Thornton!

I booked a table for 12 for my 50th birthday last week. When we arrived the conservatory had been reserved for us and it had been decorated with birthday banners and there was prosecco chilling waiting for us. The staff ( a special mention has to go to Jamie) were fabulous. Nothing was too much trouble and made the evening... More

Closing for 10 working days, will have to form an orderly queue for the reopening. Had a really brilliant Sunday lunch today food as always great along with the atmosphere, walked in, everyone chatting and having a laugh amongst themselves, with the staff (who are brilliant) and with the other customers. What a wonderful, welcoming feel this place has. Can't... More
