Delicious food matching, if not beating a lot of London restaurants. Great atmosphere and very friendly efficient staff.

Visited today with my family as a belated celebration for my 21st, and the whole experience was outstanding!

I am lactose intolerant and also cannot eat many carbohydrates. My mum had phoned about this in advance and the pub couldn't have been anymore accommodating! Not only did they go through the menu with me, stating how they can adjust things accordingly- they also went to the effort of sourcing sweet potatoes so that they could replace a Yorkshire pudding.

If I had wanted to, I would've been able to have a choice of meals for all 3 courses!

Having visited many restaurants since my intolerance, I can honestly say that The Bell is one of the most accommodating!

I know the other members of our party of 9, also thoroughly enjoyed their meals!

Excellent meal! Excellent service!

High prices, small portions, slow service, soggy batter, not enough vegetables with main courses or cream with desserts.

Stopped in for a quick lunch whilst visiting the area. Staff very friendly and the food was good. I had a cheese sandwich and the cheese was nice & mature, it came with a tasty chutney, creamy coleslaw and fries. Quality.

We eat out in the Wiltshire area a couple of times a months, so know our gastropub and good dining reasonably well. While we have favorite places, we are always willing to try something new and chanced upon The Bell at West Overton. I am extremely pleased that we did; the food, atmosphere and services are really, really good.
To eat: Local quality ingredients, creative and changing menus and a good wine list.
Service: Helpful, attentive and unpretentious.
Atmosphere: We ate in the bar and it is comfortable, well laid out, in a country chic style.

Well done to the team at The Bell.

Well worth a drive out and try out.
