From its strategic position in the centre of the village, this 17th-century coaching inn can keep an eye on everything coming up the High Street. Just outside, on a little green, a lovely old tree provides shade for a couple of benches, while on the wall of a building opposite a pre-war, AA enamel road sign survives to inform motorists that London is 68 miles away. The light, spacious bar serves beers from its own brewery, including but not limited to, Flint Knapper, Ramsbury Gold and Kennet Valley. The Bell is part of the Ramsbury Estate, which also has a distillery, a smokehouse and a facility for producing cold pressed oils. The kitchen offers a collection of hearty meals. Start with leek and potato soup or beetroot and apple salad, then move on to stone bass with lentils, roast artichokes and celery puree with reduced chicken stock and caper sauce; or try one of the locally-sourced rare breed steaks. As well as the bar and restaurant, you could also eat in Cafe Bella, which offers a decent breakfast menu as light bites and a lunch menu.
