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

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
