"Working for Beckford has given me the opportunity to progress through the business and now, as a general manager, I get to help others do the same. It’s fast past and standards are high, but the rewards and memories make it all worthwhile."

"I love the Talbot Inn and have grown up here. I’ve done everything from washing glasses, answering the phones and managing shifts. I first joined the team over seven years ago and have made so many friends, served so many suppers and learnt more than I ever thought was possible."
Georgie / Operations, The Talbot Inn
"I’ve worked at The Beckford Arms since 2015. Before working here, I was a temp chef working in lots of kitchens across the country. When I saw the job here, I knew I had to go for it. The Beckford Kitchen allows me to be creative and come up with fresh ideas that exceed the very high expectations, I wouldn’t work anywhere else."
Richie / Head Chef, The Beckford Arms
"Matt, Dan and Charlie create the sort of inns I love - stylish but full of character; appealing to Londoners, yes, but never forgetting locals wanting a pint after work.
These landlords, unlike so many today, are independent and individual, preferring to rely on high standards and value for money rather than fluctuating room prices, social media impact and public relations. As a result, each of their places stands out from the crowd."
