The Bell is located a short distance to the south east of the beautiful National Trust village of Lacock. Within the village itself are three other good public houses, and having dined in them all during a week’s break, The Bell came out on top. I can highly recommend it to those requiring a gluten/wheat-free diet - there were lots... More

We sat in the conservatory which was quiet and a nice atmosphere. We all had baguettes with various fillings which were accompanied by side salad and a bowl of chips. The food... More

Almost didn't bother writing this review as it was not bad, but not good either. If I could have given it 2.5 stars rather than 3 that would have been spot on. Six of us booked for Sunday lunch and it was very crowded indeed. We were rather squashed on to a table in the annex. The food quantities were... More

Staying in Lacock for 3 nights we decided to try the George, the Bell, and the Red Lion for our evening meals. The Bell is a very popular pub and deservedly so. The staff are friendly and attentive, the choice and quality of food is good, and the prices reasonable ... oh yes, and the portions are sizeable! We would... More

A very enjoyable lunch with plenty of choice and something to suit everyone. The meals arrived in good time and were clearly very generous portions but more importantly the quality was extremely good. It was really a family 'get together' and we were in no hurry which was just as well but we were never rushed by the friendly and... More

Food very good for a country pub, surroundings lovely, staff friendly and very helpful. To be recommended for visitors to Lacock Abbey and village as it far exceeds the National Trust.
