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.

We met family at the beckford arms for sunday lunch had to book as very busy. The service and food was very good and we all enjoyed our meal, the pub looks very good and can imagine staying here would be very good too. We will be returning again soon.

Overall we really liked The Beckford Arms but just a few things let it down. I agree with the review below that the bar staff leave a lot to be desired. The first guy couldn't smile if he tried and the second guy was incredibly flustered. We ordered cocktails and he just wandered off?! So I sat back down and... More

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.
