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, two luxurious lodges and a unique stay within The Arch at Fonthill Estate.

Kieran
Kieran 
/ Landlord
Service in the blood. Kieran is a hospitality professional, with an indefatigable calmness that keeps everything in check. Emerging from the bar, from whence he came, Kieran 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 
/ Head 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 biltong recipe.
Jack
Jack 
/ Host
From running boats in the Caymans (obvs) to running the bar at The Lord Poulett Arms, Jack has developed a true passion for showing you a great time. Irritatingly witty, mildly handsome (he likes to think) and with a penchant for tremendous haircuts.
Bea
Bea 
/ Host
Serving the longest sentence at The Beckford Arms, she is truly at one with the country pub. A delight in the mornings and a coffee master, what better way to start your day than a relaxing breakfast hosted by Beatrice.
Tallulah & Minty
Friendly, caring and an all-round pleasure. Tallulah has a raw passion for hospitality, particularly for our four-legged guests…Minty, refreshingly efficient and a stylist to the stars in the making.
Charlie
Charlie 
/ Bar
From glass washer to bar manager and harbouring musical ambition, even greatness. Charlie has developed a love for cocktails in his own time and makes a delicious Bloody Mary.
Molly
Molly 
/ Host
Utterly delightful, aspiring actress, singer and dancer…Hollywood surely beckons but first we all have the pleasure of her company.
