The Beckford Arms, Tisbury, Wiltshire
A flagstone terrace dotted with wrought-iron tables and chairs overlooks a pretty garden. It’s the ideal setting for ‘The Beckford Bloody Mary’ made using horseradish beside that very lawn.
Walk off lunch (Fowey mussels, shallots, garlic and white wine; locally grown salads, home-smoked wild salmon) with a stroll round the expansive Fonthill Estate, the entrance to which is a few minutes from the pub.
