The Bell was recommended by our accommodation in Lacock as a good place to have dinner and they were not wrong. After an enjoyable walk up from the village we were warmly welcomed and enjoyed a great pub meal (the vegetables were well cooked also) served by our friendly host.

Very friendly and efficient staff, provided good quality, tasty hearty food. A little walk out of Lacock but worth the walk. The walk could be abit tricky in the wet or in the dark. The young staff are helpful and friendly

We have been made very welcome on every visit to this charming little pub. The food and drinks are second to none and nothing is too much trouble. The menu is small and ensures that everything is cooked fresh. The steaks are amazing and the mixed grill is unbelievable. The sausage sandwiches made especially for us were fantastic! One is...

We walked from Lacock over the bridges and only the last bit was a bit hairy due to the lack of footpath but we got to the pub within ten minutes of leaving Lacock centre and thought it proved well worth the walk, I had salad which had I think potentially an entire lettuce in, it was very nice though....

We've visited this pub several times now, both to eat and just to drink so it's about time we wrote a review! Every time we visit we are greeted with a warm smile and you really are made to feel that you are very welcome and are not just another punter. There is always a great selection of real ales...

Had an an excellent couple of nights here. We had dinner both nights and then some drinks. Service was excellent and the menu had a good choice of meals. A great selection of Gin's - Ben behind the bar was an excellent host. Much preferred this place to the other pubs in Lacock, the food is much better.
