    As usual, we had another excellent meal at The Bell last night. Service was first class and all the food was delicious. We went with friends who had not been before and they were most impressed. They said the beef stack and the fillet steak was the best they had eaten in years! Staff were attentive and caring regarding the person with allergies. Very reassuring to be taken seriously at The Bell (as sadly too many restaurants are rather blasé about allergies). Highly recommend.

    Sunday lunch at The Bell, Purton Stoke. The roast turkey dinner with trimmings was hot, well cooked and fresh. Lots of veg and 3 big roasties. It was very nice and enjoyable. Shame there was no extra gravy offered

    The best Sunday roast we’ve ever had, we come every couple of months, can’t go too long without a Bell roast, the food is amazing, the roast potatoes are the best I ever had and the beef and lamb are so good, we’ve eaten here of an evening too and all the food is fantastic, lovely attentive staff too, I would highly recommend a visit.

    Enjoyed a great meal at this local restaurant with only an hours notice. Lovely fillet steak, with a sauce of your choice, and a delicious Merlot to wash it all down. All excellent value and the service was very friendly and efficient too. We will be back soon....

    The food was very good - the only negative thing I can say is that sauces, gravy etc would be better on the side as both our dishes were drowning in them. The service was exceptional - friendly and fast. Will definitely be back

    Quite simply the best to eat in the area….The 3 Crowns, Brinkwoth to The Weighbridge, Swindon, to the Langley Tap, Chippenham, to the Bell. The same family specials which have never wavered. OUTSTANDING.

    We had a Sunday lunch which was amazing! The lamb and tenderloin was delicious and we were so full we just about managed to share a tasty sticky toffee pudding. Friendly attentive staff - would highly recommend. The menu prices have gone up so not a ‘cheap’ place to go to eat but I totally understand that costs for food have increased and these have to be passed on to the customer. Nonetheless would recommend The Bell for its brilliant food in a lovely atmosphere.
