Four traditional yet contemporary inns across the South West of England. Individual in style and creativity, united in hospitality.
We think that wine should be sold in a sociable environment, not in a warehouse or in a supermarket, by knowledgeable staff and at good prices. BBS is a modern wine merchant with old-fashioned values.
Opened in late 2017, our Bath Bottle Shop is both a Bistro and a Wine Shop. A charming, relaxed venue to buy, drink and enjoy wine accompanied by inventive, tasty British ‘small plates’ as well as cheese and charcuterie for lunch and supper, a fuller meal can be created from several small plates with a bottle of wine selected from the shop. There is also a large ‘by the glass’ bistro wine list.

Our Tisbury site is a single shop in the middle of Tisbury high street, which is busy, both as a hub for the area and also because of its mainline train station, direct to Waterloo. Our Tisbury Bottle Shop is also the main hub for our online shop, serving national orders and posting out to those a little further away.

The Bramley range was created for the bathrooms at our first inn, The Beckford Arms, to enhance the guests’ stay and capture the essence of the beautiful countryside around.
Our first few guests loved the products so much that they wanted to buy them for their bathrooms, and so this little apple seed began to grow into something bigger. Our range continues to develop and has now extended to include candles, room fragrance, sleep sprays, Digby dog wash and Little B. As Bramley has grown, so has its commitment to maintaining and preserving beautiful natural environments through its approach to sustainability, partners, and the company's decision to contribute to meaningful charities.
Beckford Consulting offers bespoke advice to the quality end of the hospitality industry.
Our particular expertise is in the higher-end and boutique hotel sector, though we also undertake work in the food and beverage sector, including restaurants, cafés, function venues, pubs and bars. We are different from traditional consultants. Our working style is informal and ‘hands-on’. We focus on practical, deliverable results rather than on producing dry reports and plans (though we can do that if needed).
We are passionate about every project and we always aim to add as much value as possible in a cost-effective way. Beckford is unique in offering the complete array of advice that a quality hospitality asset may need, from strategy, concepts, design and fitting-out, to opening (or re-opening), staffing, marketing, PR, F&B, supply chains, systems and project management. We are most often engaged when businesses require improving or are starting-up.
Our staff are the lifeblood of everything and the nurturing of them is the single most important thing we do
Our mission is to look after every single person that comes through our doors by offering outstanding hospitality. The way we do that is to hire, keep and develop great staff. We always remember that, however many awards we have won, and there have been many, that we are always only as good as our last service – we start afresh every single day.
We are always on the lookout for the very best, passionate and talented staff to join our teams. Our own special informal but formal service style is detailed in a book, our bible, and this is continually reinforced with training in whatever role you inhabit. If you are as passionate as us about great food and drink and above all heartfelt hospitality then get in touch or explore our current vacancies.
