2015 Branch Pub of the year

We are pleased to announce that the 2015 year North West Wilts CAMRA
Pub of The Year is 

The Bell, Lacock.


The Bell at Lacock  gained the most votes from members when voting or
branch pubs to be included in the Good Beer Guide.
However were did this make the Bell good enough to be our PoTY? 


Committee members visit each one of the top 6 pubs and carry out a detailed 
survey which includes quality of beer, focus on CAMRA issues, Community focus, 
value for money, atmosphere/style/décor, service & welcome.

Although quality of ale is very important, being N.W.Wilts PoTY is about more 
than just the ale. It’s about the pub; it’s about how people feel about its 
atmosphere, what welcome they receive, and also whether having spent their 
hard earned cash they have enjoyed the whole experience of their visit.


The committee decided the Bell was a worth winner of our Pub of The Year
for 2015. in fact its the 10th time in 15 years that the Bell has been our PoTY
they have been in the Good Beer Guide since 2001.
