Based in the UK, I have just received my new Google (wired) Nest Doorbell and don’t have an existing wired Doorbell. I have therefore purchased an additional 13 amp mains plug adapter. The only small Ringer came with the Doorbell and it’s unclear as to how to wire it. One pair of cables with tiny screw hooks and an additional pair with plastic terminals. Would be grateful for guidance.

The link below shows several wiring diagrams from Google Nest on wiring the chime puck to your chime for the new 2nd gen Google Nest Doorbell, but doesn't show an example of wiring it with a plug-in transformer without an indoor chime:
This page has an installation video for the doorbell:
We used an OhmKat Video Doorbell Power Supply (https://www.ohmkat.com/products/ohmkat-video-doorbell-power-supply-compatible-with-nest-hello-no-exi...) when we installed the older Google Nest Hello Doorbell on an entrance with no doorbell wiring. The two wires simply connect directly to the doorbell since there was no chime. In our case, we simply did not use the chime connector that came with the Nest Hello.
Thanks for quick response. Whilst my wife and I both use the Nest App on our iPhones I wanted the diagram to confirm pairing of the tiny Audible Ringer, so that anyone who is near the front door will hear the Ring, if our phones were not nearby. It would also surely confirm to the caller that the Chime has rung like a standard Doorbell.
I'm afraid I don't know what you mean by "the tiny Audible Ringer". Is this something that came with your plug adapter? If you're referring to the ringer that is in the doorbell itself, there is no special wiring for that; it's part of the doorbell mechanism and rings when the doorbell button is pushed.
The Series 2 Doorbell came with a small 1/1/2 “ inch round Ringer as an additional Chime. It looked as if it was required the other side of the window frame? It has the two pair of cables. One pair of has the two wire cleats and the other pair of attached cables have the white Plastic connectors. As I don’t have an existing doorbell, does this mean that this unit is not required and the only sound will be from our phones wherever they may be? Can it be paired with the twin cables from the 13amp adapter?
That is NOT a "ringer" or a "Chime". Google Nest calls it a "chime puck" now. It connects to an indoor chime and serves to provide continuous electrical power to the doorbell's camera while not tripping the chime. It does NOT produce any sound.
If you don't have an indoor chime and only have an adapter, then the only sound you'll get will be from your phones. And I suspect you don't need the "chime puck". In our case, with the OhmKat power adapter, we also bought an OhmKat wireless chime that works with the OhmKat adapter.
You could buy a Nest Hub or a Nest Mini, and turn on "Visitor announcements" in your doorbell's settings:
I've been thinking. I should say I simply don't know whether the 2nd gen doorbell will work with a 3rd-party generic plug-in transformer and without use of the "chime puck." I'm guessing that Google Nest's adapter and OhmKat's adapter are both designed specifically for Google Nest doorbells.
I don't know whether the Google Store offers a UK version of the power adapter. Since we're in the US, I can't seem to find one.
OhmKat offers a UK and an EU version:
I'm jumping in to ensure everything is good here. Have you seen MplsCustomer’s last response? Let me know if that helps.
While there isn’t an available indoor power adapter for the Nest Doorbell (wired) in the UK, here is a handy guide on how to install the Nest Doorbell with an Indoor Power Adapter.
Thanks for chiming in, MplsCustomer.
