We have been aware of this beautiful pub for sometime and finally popped in for a drink. Plenty staff but no one acknowledged us. The barman was flustered when he saw someone waiting. The drinks were expensive, but that is understandable as the place is just lovely. Lots of different areas to sit and relax and the location is peaceful.... More

We stayed at the Beckford for two nights on our tour of UK small hotel Inns and so glad we did. On arrival we were made to feel very welcome and relaxed after a long drive on hot day (Thank you John). Shown to the room which was directly above the bar and at the front, all was very nice... More

We stayed here for one night, on the way to Cornwall. We could have just stayed and gone no further, what a fabulous and friendly place. Great room, love the small touches including 'home made' toiletries. Had no.6 with the dog, really comfortable, marvellous walking on the doorstep. Food extremely good - best breakfast ever. 5* from us, and we... More

If you like an amazing setting, touch of class, excellent service along with lovely food I would suggest you book a night or two at this very special hotel. Staff will go out of their way to look after you and I must congratulate management on having such a great team. All are young but seem to have patience and... More

We were taken to The Beckford Arms while staying with my daughter who lives in a village just outside Salisbury, to celebrate my birthday! The drive to our destination was very pleasant on a summer's evening in June - rolling countryside so was looking forward to a relaxing dinner. Our table overlooked a lovely garden and the menu looked promising... More

We had dinner on the terrace. I had a wood fired veggie pizza. My hubby had a chicken salad. Both were far above average in both taste and presentation. This place was not what I expected. Instead of a dark country tavern. It was a beautiful old country inn.

The five of us enjoyed our meal. There is no shadow of doubt, the food is very good. Was it worth the discomfort of two extremely wobbly seats, or that we gave our order at 1 pm, but our starter only arrived at 2.25 pm? No-one came to apologise for the extraordinary long delay, or to give us words of... More

I have visited this pub on and off for the last twenty years. It's obviously changed hands many times during that time, It is extremely popular these days but seems to have become a victim of its own success. There is nothing of Wiltshire left in this place, other than its location. The food is very good and the beer... More

Our first stay at the lodge which is part of the Beckford Arms, and in a word it was amazing! Fantastic location, surroundings, views and the lodge itself was warm, cosy, romantic and comfortable. We'll be heading back later in the year. Can't wait already!!
