All the food on the menu and specials menu appeared really good, we chose off the specials menu, I had 3 lamb chops with various vegetables all were... More

We visited last summer holidays with sulky kids and a need to feed a family of four. So this time we spent last week in B&B in Wells and used this pub numerous times this holiday. They never fail to provide a great selection of hearty, quality, inexpensive food that our kids loved and we had the most amazing steaks...... More

Description
Originally 3 cottages knocked into one, The Ring O Bells is a 14th century pub in the heart of the picturesque village of Wookey, 2 miles from the Cathedral City of Wells, the smallest City in the UK and 6.5 Miles from Cheddar & Glastonbury. The pub still retains it's original inglenook fireplaces and visible stone work. The pub was recently taken over earlier in 2016 by Graham and Denis who are both local to the area, Graham is our head chef and is quite famous round these parts for his fantastic food! You will always be welcomed with a great meal and a chance to sample one of our many local ales. With a friendly team, a mouth watering menu, a large range of beverages and a fantastic atmosphere we are sure once you have visited your only regret will be having to leave.
