Every inch the archetypal village pub with gentrified add-ons, The Bell is a centuries-old feature of Ramsbury’s market square. Inside, it breathes gentility with stained glass panels, gilt-edged pictures, open fires and bespoke drinks in the cheery bar – don’t miss the home-brewed ale from Ramsbury Estate or the home-distilled spirits. Otherwise, head to the smartly appointed restaurant for pub food with a contemporary slant and a liking for regional produce – as in seared local pigeon with beetroot and pickled red cabbage coleslaw, rare-breed steaks, Kelmscott pork loin with pork-fat potatoes, black kale and mustard dressing or haddock in Ramsbury Gold batter. Burgers and sharing boards also go down well, while desserts might bring sticky toffee pudding or poached pear tart. The Bell is also home to the no-bookings Café Bella for those who fancy a cooked breakfast, light lunch or afternoon tea in non-pubby Shaker-style surroundings.
