The Common, Broughton Gifford, Wilts, SN12 8LX

The Bell on the Common is situated in the heart of the village of Broughton Gifford, Wiltshire and only 5 mins from Melksham and within easy reach of Bath.  This beautiful stone building is on the edge of the Common which is used for a variety of local and village activities including the annual firework display which attracts people from near and far.

Last summer the pub benefited from a sympathetic refurbishment of the trading areas which has been warmly received.
