“Whether our customers are looking for a full meal, accommodation, a quick snack or a take-away coffee we want to make sure they get the very best, and we know that with Ringtons this is always the case.  Our previous coffee tower, although well used, was unreliable and the quality variable, but since installation of our new tower we can clearly see the impact having a recognised brand in Ringtons, great quality coffee and a well-designed coffee tower is having on our sales and repeat business and we expect this to only grow.”

- John Davidson from The Purdy Lodge


“The sixth form students greatly enjoyed the on-site visits to Ringtons when we were opening the doors of our own sixth form coffee shop.  They were really excited after the hands-on training they received during the tour at Ringtons and on our own espresso equipment when it was installed in our coffee bar.  The students love coming up with new coffee concoctions using their new-found barista skills and even the staff are queuing up to see what’s on the menu!”

- Richard Bell, chef manager at St Thomas More School

“Coffee and tea go hand-in-hand with the food we sell and products and training from Ringtons has been one of the main driving forces in our success and in launching our second site and more recently investing in the conversion of the classic van into a third catering facility.   Our customers are more aware than ever of what makes a good coffee and they won’t come back if our coffee isn’t up to scratch, so we have to make sure our standards don’t slip. Since we started selling Ringtons’ quality coffee and tea and received full barista training from Ringtons’ coffee experts we now know how to use our equipment properly, how to create a variety of coffees and how coffee should taste – we certainly class ourselves as ‘coffee people’ now.  All of the team are up-to-date with any industry trends and we work with Ringtons to create seasonal drinks to allow us to offer our customers something new which helps us to drive repeat visits.”

- Graham Bodle from Walkers Nurseries

“We have been using Ringtons at Upham for two years now as part of our ongoing mission to use quality local suppliers. We believe Ringtons coffee to be an excellent product enjoyed by our staff and customers alike. In addition to Ringtons being a great tasting coffee the service is second to none. We would highly recommend Ringtons and look forward to our close working relationship continuing for years to come.”

- Richard Eden, Senior Regional Operations Manager, Upham Pub Co

“As a supplier, Ringtons ticks all of the boxes – they’re local, independent, offer a great product and excellent customer service.  In the past we’ve struggled to find a supplier who could accommodate the flexible nature of the hospitality industry, provide the training and service levels we need, and most importantly offer us a personal service which works for our business.  We are confident our coffee business is only going to thrive now we have a supplier who invests heavily in training, is passionate about what they do and who are clearly ‘coffee people’.”

- Pete Hunt, Managing Director, Fresh Element (food services for The Baltic Kitchen, Six Restaurant, The Sill and Factory Kitchen)

“We have been working with Ringtons for a number of years now and are impressed not just with their excellent ethical tea and coffee but by the friendly and helpful customer service we receive. In the unlikely event that we have an issue with one of our coffee machines or we unexpectedly run out of a product, it is always reassuring to know someone is only a phone call away and will deal with the issue promptly and professionally. Coffee is one of the most popular beverages we sell it is vital we serve our customers the highest quality coffee that taste fantastic. I have no reservations in recommending Ringtons to any business.”

- Ruth Terrington, Group Operations Manager, Hooked-on Group (Blackfriars restaurant, Dobson & Parnell and Hinnies Restaurant)

“We are delighted to be partnering with Ringtons Beverages for Business on the roll out of Ringtons tea across all of our wards.  As a healthcare operator we are committed to making sure patients are as comfortable as possible while in our care and the food and drink we serve is a big part of this. Ringtons is a much-loved local company and we are pleased to be able to offer patients a quality tea which is made just a few miles up the road.  Ringtons was able to offer us a first-rate Fairtrade tea which will help towards our ambitions of achieving a Silver award from the Soil Association.”

- Geoff Moyle, Catering Services Manager from the Freeman Hospital

“Our ethos is to look after our employees and attract the best individuals to the business by making sure we offer a great place to work.  Installation of the Ringtons coffee machine was part of a £2million revamp of the 38,000 square foot RIBA building which also included fitting a gym, roof garden and communal dining and meeting space.  We wanted a coffee machine which produced drinks which were just as good as those you would buy on the high street and we found the process of working with Ringtons easy and unique.  We tasted all of the coffees in Ringtons’ own training centre and were able to speak to existing customers who were already using the machine to make sure it was right for our needs.  The machine is easy to operate and maintain and the variety of drinks it produces is ideal for our team of 160 who appreciate the benefit of having free barista quality coffee.”

- Carol Punton ABIFM, Facilities Manager, NBS
