My Son first found this place over new year. He reported it as nice but expensive. We thnk it is lovely and not expensive.I had whitebait as a starter and my wife some beetroot thing. They were both delicious. The wine was Sauvignon Blanc which was also very nice. I had a Minute steak which was cooked perfectly but was... More

Beautiful Inn, warm and lovely pub and delicious food, wonderful service. The following is an excerpt from my travel blog: We have retired to our room for the night, relishing the last ten hours of being in this country. Bellies full, and Rob just finished in a bath with lavender scented bubbles (made locally), and is now editing a few... More

Comfortable, cozy accommodations and lovely surrounding countryside. The only hiccup was the discovery that there were some plumbing issues in our room. We let staff know, and they responded immediately, set reasonable expectations for a fix, and met those expectations. The time it took to get everything working allowed us the time to take a delightful sunset stroll through the... More

I stayed here for one night and was delighted by the comfortable bed and tasteful interior design of the room. The bathroom was wonderful and I loved the range of Bramble toiletries. I dined in the restaurant and despite having to send back my meal, the matter was promptly and efficiently resolved completely to my satisfaction. This is a lovely... More

Roast Beef & Yorkshire Pud, Real Ale and Red Wine, Chocolate & Peanut Butter Pudding. Charlie's gastronomic staging post is an exemplar of what a modern day destinational pub dining should be. Great banter at the bar—cheeky chappies and whimsical waitresses. It's all good at The Beckford Arms—A really classy, relaxing joint. If you're with 100 miles take the opportuminity... More

Stayed in attic room which sleeps family of 4. Way better than expected from their website as it's actually 2 separate double rooms separated by small but sweet sitting room so no noise from kids during the night. Steep stairs but kids loved denlike attic. Wonderful open fire in sitting/breakfast room with large comfy sofas. Perfect for wet winter weekend.... More

A lunch here was a rewarding experience. The buzz of a full house with prospective clients glugging happily while they awaited tables was testament to the popularity of the Beckford Arms. Lunch did not disappoint. Good staff coped successfully with the throng. Food exactly as ordered. We shall return.

Excellent food, good beer, very nice wines and a really warm welcome. It's not cheap but great value all the same. It's become the place me and my partner come when we're stressed and need to relax, feel like we want to reward ourselves for something, to celebrate, any excuse really!

we went to the Beckford Arms on a friends recommendation and found a relaxed and lovely atmosphere with absolutely great staff who were very friendly and helpful and made the stay very special. The food was good though the dinner menu was not exciting. the breakfast was excellent.

We went here for lunch with friends who live nearby and who had been to the Beckford Arms a number of times before. I can see why they like it so much. It's a very stylishly decorated and sophisticated pub in a great location but it still retains a warm and friendly country pub atmosphere. The room we sat in... More
