As of the 30th March 2009 Darren Littlewood & Alan Thomas will be the new landlords of The Ring O’ Bells in Priston. Alan has worked as head chef in 5 star hotels and Darren in award winning pubs.
Being chefs food features right up there in our plans for the pub and the kitchen will be open seven days a week, everything from bread to chutney to the mayonnaise in your tartare sauce will be made on the premises, our fish will be supplied by Cornish day boats, our meat from local award winning butchers and our veg from local growers. We have no desire to turn the pub into a fancy restaurant with inflated prices and snooty service, this is going to be good value pub food.
Of course real ales will still feature strongly and we will be using local breweries for monthly guest ales, we are also increasing the wine list and adding some premium spirits, bottled beers and organic cider. The rooms above the pub will now be available for bed and breakfast, we have 3 luxury double rooms and you get your own personal chef to cook breakfast. Once a month we will host a quiz & curry night at the pub with a share of the proceeds going to good causes in the village.
We are really keen to hear your opinions too and would love to find some local village suppliers for our kitchen, we have set a blog up so you can leave your comments or you can email us at,, or just drop in for a chat!

We have finally got the letting rooms finished and Saturday our first guests stayed the night, it was a close shave getting the room ready in time but apparently they enjoyed their stay and particularly the comfy beds!


  1. Hi - we are wondering what your room rates are for B&B as we will be attending a wedding at the Mill in November.
