Pub overview

Fantastic Community Local

The Ring O Bells is a traditional drinking pub, focusing on delivering a great ‘no nonsense’, keenly priced drink-led welcoming environment for locals. This site is all about big portions at low prices. Customers appreciate they can eat and drink for a good price due to the frequent offers on both food and drink over the week. This is an excuse to pop to the pub for simple, tasty, familiar and filling food whilst enjoying the pubs entertainment. Customers appreciate great value pricing across the range from a pint of lager to a massive burger and chips so we are keen to keep those offers and deals alive. Primarily attracting people travelling a short distance, the Ring O Bells is unchallenging in design. It also offers pub games and sport viewing as incentives to visit on non-dining occasions providing a hub to meet friends and relax.

The trade area is flexible to accommodate both drinkers and diners in comfort. Customers can ‘find a space’ within the pub that suits their specific needs, group size and space. Flexible furniture and seating has been introduced that can be adapted by session, week and day parts. The Ring O Bells has additional facilities such as machines, sport, games and live entertainment – creating ‘room for all’ without compromising the customer comfort. The pool area has enough room around the table for players to cue correctly; machines are easily accessible. A mix of varied seating, poseur, mid–height and booth furniture exist throughout the pub. Comfy & removable bar stools convey permission to drink at the bar. Tables vary in terms of size and height, with a proportion conducive to dining.
