Established in 2015, The Beckford Bottle Shop is a contemporary wine merchant with traditional values. Our flagship, in the beautiful city of Bath, has a stylish wine shop and adjoining bistro, featuring tin clad ceilings, sumptuous Chesterfield sofas and a marble countertop window seat.
Hospitality is at the very core of our philosophy. We are passionate about wine and food, believe in creating environments that are warm, welcoming and put our customers needs first. Whether you are seeking a bottle, a case or to enjoy a glass with some seasonal small plates, our aim is to make your experience both enjoyable and memorable.
We are incredibly proud of our team. They have a diverse range of experience spanning hospitality, wine shops and beyond. Get to know the faces behind the notepad, wine glass and kitchen door - we love to get to know our customers and spark up a conversation.
“Went here for a cheese board and some wine. Very friendly staff. By day this is a regular wine shop so they have a broad range of bottles where you pay retail + £15 corkage. Leads to better prices for most wines than you’d find elsewhere”.
A lover of cheese, Ollie oversees all aspects of BBS. Emerging from the fromagerie, with a close eye on detail, Ollie has grown with BBS and is an all-round expert in wine, service and building brigades.
Like all chefs James loves his food. At the weekend you will find him somewhere in a Somerset field, foraging the abundance of local produce. There really is nothing this man doesn’t know about seasonal produce.
Friendly, fastidious and fabulous. With a keen eye for detail Sabrina will often be found beavering away behind the bar in our Bath Bistro. What she knows about cocktails, is nothing, as we're a wine shop
Miss hospitality, Gemma is at the core of our Bath Bistro team. Gemma can do it all. She welcomes guests, runs small plates up the stairs and can advise on all things food and wine. All with a beaming smile.
