Established in 1740, The Beckford Arms is a traditional yet stylish country inn located on the edge of the stunning rolling parkland of the Fonthill Estate in Wiltshire, just under two hours from London and twenty minutes from Salisbury. The pub has an oak stool lined bar that is stocked with local ales, a restaurant serving unpretentious, seasonal food, a sun-filled terrace with a wood-fired pizza oven for the summer months, a homely library for intimate gatherings, a sitting room with roaring fires and deep antique chairs, eight characterful bedrooms and two luxurious lodges just a short stroll away.

James
James 
/ Publican
Service in the blood. James is a hospitality professional, with a fanatical eye for detail and a great set of waistcoats. Emerging from the bar, from whence he came, James has been home-grown into the all-round Beckford general manager.
Rene
Rene 
/ Reservations
The devil for detail. Banker turned seamstress, Rene’s passion for organisation and beautification saw her leave her Pall Mall interiors business for the country life. She’s here to manage your stay with aplomb.
Richie
Richie 
/ Chef
Can you have too much passion for great food? Richie keeps exceeding what is normal. Beavering away in the kitchen at all hours - but happy to chat outside about all things food, just don't get him started about his billtong recipe.
Poppy
Poppy 
/ Host
Friendly, fastidious and fabulous. With a keen eye for the aesthetic, when not at work, Poppy more than dabbles in the wold of film production as a designer.
Imogen
Imogen 
/ Host
The reluctant scientist. A natural biologist and academic whizz, Imogen also loves her food and looking after people. A hospitality natural who’s put down her microscope to take up the fork and platter.
Anna
Anna 
/ Host
Anna knows her onions. Two years in the Beckford kitchen learning the ways of great English cookery, Anna has spent the last year serving the very things she loves to make. If it’s about food, ask her. She knows.
