Beckford Canteen
Modern British Dining


Set in a former Georgian greenhouse, Beckford Canteen is a space for people to come together and share the joys of delicious food and great hospitality.

Sitting on bustling Bartlett Street, in one of the prettiest parts of Bath, the restaurant offers a light and airy space bedecked with banquettes, leather clad dining chairs and window countertops to watch the world go by.

Beckford Canteen is the perfect stop for a quick, tasty bite or a longer, more indulgent dining experience.
“For me, what is most important is just to cook some super tasty food using the best produce that the South West has to offer."

George Barson, Head Chef

Food & Drink

For us, Modern British Dining means that we source the best local ingredients and prepare them using traditional culinary techniques, together with the best of those borrowed from our overseas cousins.

The Canteen menu reflects this approach, where provenance and proper techniques are a given. We hope to bring both together to create a tasty and memorable dining experience.

Our approach to food remains the same across our group of pubs and restaurants - creating delicious dishes using the best quality ingredients. We pay homage to our country pub menus, taking their essence but reinventing and finessing them for this Canteen cuisine.

Work with us

As with any hospitality company our people are the bedrock of everything that we do. In the 13+ years that the Beckford group has operated, the world of hospitality has changed enormously and for the most part we feel for the positive. Gone are the days of 70 hour weeks, poor management and the industry consuming its staff at a startling rate.

We pride ourselves on being a hospitality led business and for us this simply means that we put our guests first. However, we believe to do this effectively we need to ensure that our staff are well looked after and able to arrive to work fresh, rested and ready to go. This means ensuring that we manage shift patterns, reward excellence and provide the training, tools and support that ensure our people are the best.

With four pubs, The Beckford Bottle Shop & Beckford Canteen, we are always on the lookout for good people, whether you are experienced or seeking your first start in the industry, we are always interested to hear from you. For current openings click below.
