On entering the half empty pub at lunchtime on a Friday, a bearded chap behind the bar was extremely unwelcoming. He did say "hello" (what has happened to "good afternoon"?) but didn't ask what we wanted to drink, and let us wait with his back turned. When we pointed at an empty table and politely asked one of the waiters...

We, by which I mean management and staff, are all aware about this altercation and the many previous complaints you have made about other incidents on previous occasions, and other postings. I do want to reassure you that we are a small friendly country pub, with great food and hospitality that tries its very best to look after every single...

We drove a long way to the restaurant only to be greeted by a rude staff (guy behind the bar) who turned us away disdainfully saying the kitchen was closed at 3pm (5 mins earlier) when we could see people just getting their food and still ordering. We asked if there's anywhere nearby he might recommend instead but he was...

Great location on good walking routes. Expensive but decent food. Nice terrace with friendly old dog. Nice girl serving but guys behind bar very disdainful. Frequented by very posh country set at lunchtime. More a restaurant then pub.

Visited The Beckford Arms on Saturday evening. As soon as we walked in the staff were very welcoming. We were seated in the Sitting Room, which was really nice and comfortable. The food was lovely, everything tasted good and was presented, very well. As for the prices they were a little higher than other pubs in the area but once...

I visited this pub last week with some friends. Whilst we all enjoyed the drive over and the position of the pub (and the interior) the food was not particularly enjoyable and very expensive. I had the beetroot trout starter which was miniscule for £8.50 and served with no bread - I felt cheated. The ham hock in brioche bun...

Absolute amazing find! Friends told about the Beckford Arms and the fact they are dog friendly, we managed to book room 6 (that allows dogs to stay too) mid week at very short notice... have to say the staff are extremely friendly, very welcoming to Bentley our dog too. Our room was lovely and comfortable, the food was amazing, we...

We stopped for lunch to break a bank holiday journey to Somerset. The food and service really lived up to all that's been written about the Beckford Arms. We had a lovely lunch sitting on the terrace. The service was very friendly and our puppy was made very welcome with treats. We would lobe to come back and stay in...

Service was great and the food was spot on. The pub is beautiful, with a lovely conservatory, nice countryside decor. Menu was varied and had a great choice of fish, meat and vegetarian dishes. Rioja Santiago wine was lovely as well! Perfect for a lunch/dinner with friends or family.

As a regular visitor to the Beckford Arms it has been a firm favourite for several years. The last two visits have left me feeling I have spent a lot of money for little return and that it has been riding the coat-tails of past success and focus. The positives: outstanding location/setting, good interior and generally pleasant staff. The negatives:...

I had been recommended by clients to visit this pub for dinner for such a long time & finally the perfect opportunity came up. Lovely decor,alittle quirky layout & great atmosphere. It felt rather relaxed for a very busy Easter lunch sitting & the large sofas I think are a great touch for lounging after dinner. We had a rather...
