Charlie and his team made us feel really welcome from the moment we stepped in the door - we stayed for 2 nights with teenage daughters and had a very special weekend. The comfort of the bedrooms, the relaxed atmosphere of the place and the fantastic pub food all add up to amazing value for money. Not only did the... More

Jim and I have just spend three fantastic days at the Beckford. What a lovely, gorgeous, warm, fine and friendly place. We cannot fault it and the staff made it. Great food served with a smile, lovely rooms and spaces to spread out and feel really at home. Comfortable bed; up the top of the house; all quiet and cosy.... More

We visited on the recommendation that the pub would be showing the Six Nations. Not only did they have the game showing, but in the Sitting Room which was beautiful, comfy and welcoming. Local beer and good quality wine were a bonus, and the service was superb. We would definitely stay for the food; there were many people who were... More

My wife and I have just returned from three magical nights as part of our honeymoon. I booked following the review in The Times and can honestly say that The Beckford Arms was even better than we had anticipated. A great bottle of white, local beer and collapsed on the sofa with roaring fire was fantastic start after our wedding... More

This was a two night getaway prompted by a glowing review in The Times and it all came true. The setting is idyllic and the ambience and decor could not be bettered in what is essentially a gastro pub with rooms. The staff do all they can to make you happy (especially Colin!). The food is interesting and of top... More

Thank you for your kind words and I will pass onto Colin. I completely agree that there is a lack of storage in room 4 and I can only apologise that your room was not made up on the second night, it should have been. More

We've been there twice and the food tasted good. Unfortunately for me I have quite an appetite so I need a decent meal. When I go to eat food I am hungry, and in these cases we thought it would be a treat, worth the quite high prices. The problem comes when you get up to go, still getting over... More

Dear John That is an  interesting idea asking everyone how hungry they are when they sit down to eat, we will look into that.   We do have low priced "extra sides" on the menu for the extra hungry and do give customers free homemade bread. We price our menu at the same you would pay in most pubs but... More

We have just spent a night there celebrating my partner's birthday. We ate sunday lunch which was all we could have hoped for - fantastic beef, roasties and yorkshire pudding. We ate supper in front of a roaring fire whilst watching a film. The next morning breakfast was delicious and served with such smiles. We then walked around the Fonthill... More

I hosted my 30th birthday here having been before and loved it. We took all the rooms and had the private room (the Library) for supper, with drinks around the fire before and afterwards. The team there simply could not do enough to make the weekend. The service was exceptional, the food some of the best my guests had had... More

And I'm so glad I did- we all had such a great weekend. The rooms, food,wine -everything was wonderful. But... More
