user reviews of the Ring o Bells, Marple

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Having not always been fortunate enough to strike the best pubs at the right times during a recent canal holiday on the Cheshire Ring, we at last discovered something of a more worthy canalside hostelry in Marple's Ring O' Bells. It was a pleasing whitewashed Victorian building which was immediately welcoming upon stepping inside. Various seating areas are available and all looked comfortable, as was the bar area. However, with 8 of us in tow, there was nowhere with adequate space to sit or prop up the bar even, so we had to venture into the garden. Cold, but at least this showed the pub enjoys a healthy level of customers. I can understand why; there were a range of 5 Robinson's beers on pump, each found in good condition. The Young Tom in particular was splendid. The barmaid was genial and patient with our massive order especially when the ale ran dry and required changing. Food was clearly popular and the menu looked excellent - fish and meat dishes featured and I rather wish others had been up for sampling them - another time maybe. The place had a distinct community feel and various events were being held for their benefit - sadly we just missed a beer festival scheduled for Sat 24 Sep. Also, the pub runs a novel party boat trip up the canal with a bar on board their private 72-foot craft. Unfortunately we met it coming at us under a nearby bridge and narrowly avoided a collision! The staff weren't happy but the guests found it amusing enough. Well done folks - keep this up.

Visited many times over the years when crusing the Macclesfield Canal. Always reliable & last week was no exception - range of Robinsons ales, all well kept. 'Up market' food menu looks good, tho' not sampled
