We had arranged to walk from here and return for lunch as a large group. The landlord came out to the car park to greet us and take lunch orders. We had been given menus in advance which were different from the Sunday menu, but he allowed some people to have items not on the Sunday menu where people didn't... More

Visited yesterday for Sunday lunch, we ordered the roast beef, a small and a regular size. Both served with Yorkshire pudding, roast potatoes, new potatoes and fresh veg. Utterly delicious, even managed to squeeze in a dessert. £5.95 for each pudding was a bit pricey we thought but very nice dining experience as a whole. Would recommend +++

Very pleasant staff and relaxed atmosphere and lots of lovely new magazines to brows through while having a nice drink. We had a meal of roast lamb and fresh vegetables which was very nice, in fact was so much on my plate my partner had to help out.

We recently attended for a large family meal to celebrate a family meal, their was an awful lot of us (16). This made no difference the meals were all promptly brought out and were to a very high standard. I had a prawn chilli jam starter and it was beautiful, this was followed by beef that melted in the mouth.... More

We really enjoyed our visit to The Bell. It was a treat for my mother, who lives nearby. We'd booked for eight but in the end only six could make it. This didn't bother the staff at all. The food was very good and service - despite it being busy - attentive. If you're visiting Lacock, this is a very... More

I'd first like to mention that the staff were great and the service was quick. Both my friend and I felt that the food was uninspiring though; overly fatty, the steak was over done, the salads undressed. This is basic pub food at inflated prices. The chips were good but we wouldn't return.
