The Ring O’Bells is a village pub which has been run since 1987 by our family team of John and Elaine Foreman and Elaine’s brother John Sharman. It combines the best elements of the traditional country pub with modern facilities such as free wi-fi access. The old part of the pub comprises three comfortable bar areas on different levels, while newer developments include a dining room and a function room which is suitable both for social events and business meetings. The function room also incorporates a skittle alley. There is also a large garden with a patio and children’s play area.

The pub has won several awards over the years for its home-cooked food and for the quality and range of its real ales. A wide-ranging regular menu is complemented by an ever-changing Specials board and special food weeks featuring different international cuisines are also held from time to time. A varying range of real ales is provided from micro breweries in the West Country and elsewhere. Families are welcome and there is disabled access to several areas.  Please click on the links above to the pub’s own website and Facebook Page to see more details, news updates and photos.

We re-opened on Sat July 4 and look forward to welcoming back all of our customers. It would help our planning if customers could book in advance where possible. Please note we will be opening earlier on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays at 6.00 pm (see full list below). Our takeaway service will continue and will be extended to 7 days a week. You can see our menu on our website or pick up a copy from our front porch.

In preparation for re-opening we re-arranged our layout and re-spaced our tables. We have also taken all necessary measures to implement Government guidance to keep our customers and staff safe.

Our revised Opening Hours are:
Mon to Weds: 12.00-2.30 and 7.00-11.00 pm
Thurs to Sat:  12.00-2.30 and 6.00-11.00 pm
