We visited The Bell for an evening meal on NYE.. It is always an absolute pleasure going here. Service is excellent and the food is always delicious. My partner had a steak and said he could have eaten it twice, it was the best he had ever had! Wishing everyone at The Bell a very successful 2015.

Discovered The Bell via the web and was tempted by the Beer Tapas. Met family for lunch and felt immediately at home in the bar (as did Grif the dog). Great lunch, super puds and friendly service meant everyone from nine to sixty were all very happy.

Thanks for a fantastic meal on Christmas Eve. I visited with my family and elderly mother. The staff were attentive and catered for my elderly mother's small appetite and dietary requirements. I had a really delicious nut roast with Brie, along with home made chips and salad. We all said how tasty the food was, served hot and fresh. Nice... More

Visited yesterday (10.12.14) as all other possible places in Lacock were full. Warm welcome, and prompt delivery of two good quality meals at a reasonable price. Large car park and a pleasant atmosphere. Will go again, even when it is easier to get access to the central Lacock eateries.

My partner and I have eaten at The Bell several times in the past and thought it would be lovely to eat there for my birthday. What a disappointment. My partner ordered the pate to start, followed by the rump steak and I the lamb shank. We waited 25 minutes and all 3 meals came out together. The waiter didn't... More

We ate here as part of a large group reservation on a weekday evening. We have frequented The Belll on numerous occasions albeit not for a while. The food in the past was always exceptional. The interior has undergone a makeover and the dining area is still very cosy. The menu didn't really feel like it had changed much at... More

This was our third visit (for the second time with friends) to The Bell and certainly no less excellent and memorable than our first two visits. One of the party had had a jaw operation and made an advanced request for food which wasn't too crunchy (eg soft bread not crusty) and- in the same vein- had also requested to... More

We travelled to meet friends for a birthday celebration, we are not local so I can only comment on one evenings experience. We were a large party in a busy restaurant, the waitress was friendly and efficient. The food was really good. I can highly recommend the apple, Stilton & walnut pate, delicious! They seemed really accommodating allowing the table... More

Visited on a Friday evening quite early and hadn't booked a table. It was fairly busy when we arrived and we were offered a table either in the conservatory or the restaurant. We chose the conservatory and for a short while had it to ourselves but it quickly filled up as did the rest of the pub. As always the... More

I badly wanted a lovely meal out for my family and looked up reviews for this place and duly booked. I am very sorry we did. Our table was so sticky our arms constantly stuck to it. No food was apparent on it but it had a tacky touch. The seat covers are disgracefully stained and the table area was... More
