Back for the third time in three years and the standard remains as high as ever. As our intended companion couldn't make it, it's an excuse to go again in June to show her English gastro-pub food of the highest standard.

We have eaten here several times before but at lunch time which may be the difference. The menu choices were limited and the prices had definitely gone up.

The food was OK, not the regular pub food, but it means that you pay more and food is served without sides like patatoes. The sevice was ok but different waitresses each serving.

The building has charm. Very busy today but they still made space for a late booking. Menu was interesting and varied.

We picked this to celebrate my husband's birthday and were not disappointed. Great menu although we were too full to try the puddings, hopefully next time. Would definitely recommend.

I have eaten at the Beckford before and my high expectations were met yet again. The service is always friendly, the dishes interesting and very well cooked. The bar also boasts an interesting selection of malt whiskies.
