My family and I went for Sunday lunch on the 5th February to celebrate my 50th birthday. We were seated in the conservatory at our request as there were 9 of us. I took two helium balloons and a birthday cake to put on the table, which no one had a problem with. The staff were very friendly when we... More

Lovely food and excellent service. Had a lovely valentines meal. But it's the little touches that count. My wife's medication limits what she can drink, but I rang them up and they got a bottle in for us. Nice touch Totally recommended

First time back under the new management and first impression are that the refurbishment is very good. We were a party of seven and a child which was no problem for them to arrange the seating plus a highchair. During the food ordering my wife wasn't sure if the Beef Stew with chorizo would too spicy but ordered it anyway... More

Me, my mother and Grandad visited here over a month ago and I forgot to write a review about how pleasant our experience was! We visited a mid week lunchtime and were greeted by the new owners son. He explained about the refurbishment etc, the menu and was a genuinely nice lad with excellent customer service skills. We were impressed... More

We called on speck very early on a Saturday evening with a very warm welcome. When given the menu all specials was clearly explained. We ordered: mussels in the most delicate sauce with a slice of homemade bread to collect every drop ( a must.) Partner ate duck egg on toast. Both dishes perfect with presentation thought through. Main course... More

We had been several times to Ring O'Bells when it was under previous management and decided to try it again to see how it has changed. So glad we did. Although it was not too busy, (It had just re-opened after a post Christmas break) the refurb was subtle but freshened the place up. However we had come here to... More
