We were guests here for a pre Christmas treat. Our family was late but we enjoyed the hustle of the bar and it's pre Christmas walkers, drinkers and diners. We were allowed to change tables from the one reserved for us and the service was both friendly and attentive. The disappointment was with the food. Whilst the ladies had chosen... More

This was just the perfect place for someone in need of TLC. Off the beaten track, interesting menu and lovely food, fire, beautiful rooms. Utterly comfortable and comforting. Will be a hard place to beat.

We have just returned from a two-night stay at the Beckford Arms to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday. It was perfect. The food was fantastic, the room delightful and the atmosphere relaxed and friendly. The place is staffed by a small army of the most pleasant and helpful young people it has ever been my pleasure to meet. Nothing was... More

This is a gem - my second visit was even better than the first. The previous time I stayed I'd not brought my toilet bag and dreaded a trip to the 'not so local' supermarket to buy minimal essentials before settling down to a much wanted pint. I should not have feared; all I needed was provided in a little... More

We have stayed here on numerous occasions. The rooms are perfect with lovely touches , quality products, beautiful linen and towels and token bar of choc with your tea making . The food and service are always delicious and outstanding. Had the treat of staying in a lodge which was an indulgence in itself. We will be back.

We having been going to the Beckford Arms for the last 4 years, sometimes for Sunday lunch and sometimes for lunch during the week. Its a 45 minute drive - thankfully - otherwise we would be here all the time! This place never fails to impress, from the drive to the pub, the building itself, the quality and value of... More

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
