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.

I took 3 of my work colleagues/ friends here for lunch on our day off as none of them had eaten here before. I live in Bromham and have been here several times. We all decided to have a walk around Laycock and I booked a table here knowing the food was good. I ordered the Goats cheese salad and... More

Dropped in here hoping to grab some lunch with a group of 14 after a morning of team pursuits. Our hopes were not high on getting served at 2.30pm but we could not have been more wrong. The staff were welcoming and efficient and the beer selection was good. The sun was shining, which was lucky as there was no... More

Popped in for a pint and cheeky toilet stop. Seemed nice, pleasant staff, cider was tasty and the wood burner made it nice and cosy
