Stayed there in 2012, and again in 2014 still brilliant attention to detail which translates to outstanding food and accommodation. The breakfast choice is huge and of gourmet standard. A great stay again.

Had a lovely lunch at the Beckford Arms! The burger was to die for. It has everything going for it, lovely location, beautiful building, great food. Had to wait quite a long time to be served - possibly due to new staff, but the food certainly made up for that.

Re-visiting with friends for Saturday lunch,which overall rather disappointed, the slowness of service, and subsequent long periods between courses. The mains needed to be checked before serving, and compared with past lunches, were indifferent.... Our overall impression, was one of harassed and overworked waiting staff, just coping! The Management need to re-assess the future operating structure, of a once very... More

Four friends met for a drink & dinner; the atmosphere was great & the meals were delicious. We enjoyed a very pleasant evening. {we did not stay for the night} It was very busy on the evening we visited... I recommend making a table reservation.

Delightful country pub which ticks so many boxes ..... Charming rooms, rustic bar, roaring log fire in the separate sitting room, great food, no, stunning food, and beautiful walks from the door. But the real strength of this pub is the staff who were, without exception, charming, enthusiastic, helpful and well trained. Charlie, the affable owner, leads by example to... More

My husband, son and I stayed there last week and had a really great evening and dinner. We received a very warm welcome and were shown to two lovely rooms. The rib-eye steak at dinner was absolutely delicious and certainly one of the best I have ever tasted. Really good breakfast as well - with nice touches like Panadol, Strepsils,... More

This was our third stay at The Beckford Arms and we loved it just as much as the others If not more. All the staff are very friendly, behind the bar and the waiting staff. Food and drink is amazing! Really great roast dinners and fresh fish. Had some lovely wine and a couple of Beckford cocktails... The marmalade mule... More

Six of us (three couples) stayed at the Beckford Arms and spent the weekend walking in the nearby countryside. The rooms are ideal, though we selected a small room it was comfortable and had everything you could need. The food was really very good indeed, we had breakfast each morning and dinner on both evenings and there wasn't a single... More

We stayed at the Beckford Arms while visiting Fonthill Estate. Our room was excellent with comfy bed, beautiful view of the gardens and lovely toiletries. Supper in the restaurant was top class and the menu caters for all. Step out of the front door and you are in the most beautiful Wiltshire countryside. A perfect stay.

My husband and I had been to the Beckford Arms for lunch twice before. The first time was on the way to a week's stay in the Tamar Valley. We decided then and there that our second visit would be on the way back home, it was that great. We noticed they had rooms and promised to treat ourselves on... More
