My partner and I had a all too-brief but totally memorable dinner, B&B stay at the fabulous Beckford Arms. We were both wowed by every aspect of this pub and restaurant, from the impressive scenic approach through the Tisbury estate to the hospitable welcome from owner and every member of staff whom we encountered, from the delicious food and drink...

Call me old fashioned, but polite, friendly and efficient service is just as important to a good meal as the produce, preparation and its cooking.....at the Beckford Arms it all comes as part of the package....in bucket loads! After an impromptu last minute decision to eat out we were disappointed to turn up to our first choice to find it... More

Stayed here for just 1 night on the way from Essex to Cornwall. Dinner in the pub was very good indeed - my roasted pork loin was tender, tasty and juicy; but the show stealer was my "smashed peas and feta" starter which was perhaps the freshest tasting dish I've enjoyed in many a year! Our room (7) was large... More

This is a lovely pub/hotel on the edge of a beautiful country estate and with excellent food. The rooms are in good taste, and whilst not enormous, are large enough. We ate there in the evening and had a fine meal, followed by a glass of something in the bar. Breakfast was excellent too with a waitress service full breakfast... More

On a lovely hot Saturday in August my wife and I decided to go for a drive with my 93 year old dad to have lunch at the Beckford Arms. She and I had been there twice before - not to eat - and loved our visits. Especially sitting in the lovely garden in the back of the pub. We... More

We had a great time for our first family holiday at the Beckford Arms - a tranquil location with a comfy bed and a delicious choice for breakfast. The toiletries made by the owner are great and you really feel at home there - a welcoming place for families. If you're staying a while, the rooms have a TV and... More

Beckford Arms is a small establishment with 8 rooms for guests tucked away on a quiet country estate about 1 1/2 miles from Tisbury in Wiltshire. Lovely walking area and very convenient for a trip to Salisbury to see Cathedral etc. Tisbury has a train station, 1 stop to Salisbury! The room at the Beckford Arms is well equipped, staff... More

Visited with another couple - gorgeous pub, very tastefully decorated & lovely food. Service friendly, attentive & efficient. Good beers & reasonable wine list. Make sure to book on a Fri or Sat night.

Fantastic location set in the heart of Wiltshire, great food from an imaginative menu, attentive waitress service. Tasteful decor. Biggest let down is the bar man. Rude, obnoxious and unprofessional towards clients and other staff members.
