Takes quirky to a NEW LEVELjwjoydays - Bideford, United Kingdom
“if you didnt know this wonderful place existed you would never find it.. completely out of the way .. but well worth the effort!! A very warm welcome, a quirky dinner menu and food to match . Wonderfully cooked and such a delight to find some where different. Staff attentive and polite and casual yet professional. Very reasonably priced too. Would certainly return.”
Amazing Sunday LunchEmma H

WonderfulPatricia2709 - Bideford, United Kingdom
“We had a wonderful dinner and breakfast at the Ring of Bells, and a comfortable stay in the quirky cottage attached to the pub. Although this was a deal we had, we would have happily paid the full price for absolutely everything and we can't wait to return for more! Binka the landlady, and Dave the chef & business partner are truly lovely people, and all the staff are welcoming, efficient, and helpful. The pub is full of character & has several areas, some which allow dogs (Reuben the pub dog is a darling).”
Well worth a visitjonathant621 - Norwich, UK
“We saw a write up about this pub so decided to visit and were not disappointed in any way. Friendly staff, well priced menu and real ales all add up to a do not miss place.
Set menu of 3 courses for £15 although limited had several unknown to us options including rare roast beef on dripping taste which I almost ordered again.A little out of the way and limited parking and I suspect you may need to book but I would make the effort to try it. Thank you for an excellent welcome and meal.”
