Having been built in the 11th Century, The Five Bells became a farmhouse in 1729, and was granted a full license in 1784 and has been selling beers, wines and spirits ever since.

It was named The Five Bells due to the five bells of St Nicholas Church in Ringwould. However, there are now six bells at the church. One from the 14th Century, four dated 1638 and the last one added in 1967.
