Part of the Ramsbury Estate, The Bell is a classy new-wave inn and one that showcases Ramsbury Estate produce. Come for Ramsbury beers, gin and vodka, kitchen garden fruit and veg, and seasonal game. Completing this pleasing picture are nine stunning bedrooms named after game birds and fish. Cosy lodgings for fishermen, and for those exploring the glorious Marlborough Downs, they come with soothing Farrow & Ball colours, rich fabrics, down duvets, big beds, vintage books, and super bathrooms with White Company lotions and heated slate floors. Back downstairs, enjoy a pint of Gold in the smart, hop-adorned bar, or bag the sofa in the library-style lounge and entertain yourself with a copy of The Field. Pop into the stylish restaurant for dishes such as pan fried scallops, Kelmscott pork loin or The Bell’s favourites: Ramsbury Gold battered haddock and Butts Farm rare breed steaks. As for the village, it’s really pretty, and the pub, just off the main square, is 100 yards from the river bank.
