A traditional Georgian town pub in an impressive high street building, which puts beer quality at the centre of its operating model. There is a pleasant enclosed garden at the rear which provides a great oasis in which to hide from the tourists, though on this occasion it was somewhat marred by a bucket of wet fags ends by the smoking shelter. There is a small saloon on the left as you enter, a private bar in the middle and a larger public bar on the right, the latter having a dart board and leading to a separate games room with a pool table. There is also a selection of board games available. The floors are tiled, and there is a brick fireplace containing a woodburner. Dogs are not allowed in due to the presence of the pub dog. The landlady was very welcoming, the locals were grumpy but tolerant. They don’t do food, but you can bring in a takeaway. Ales on were all from Wadworth – 6X, IPA and Swordfish, all in excellent condition, plus Rosie’s Cider on draught and 2 boxed ciders. I’d be very happy coming back here for a few beers as it’s not too turbulent.

Glastonbury is an odd place for Pubs. I have to say.

This is prominent in the high street. Strangely, looks bigger on the outside than inside, but this is probably because the central bar splits the pub in half.

Sparsely populated on a Saturday night - which was a shame. The Wadworth beer (I have the previously unexperienced Swordfish) was superb and the juke box - well, you just need to peruse it yourself. I have heard of the Bonzo Dog Doodah Band, but never heard them play.

Hmmm... very strange - two sole reviews raving about this average establishment and both giving it 10/10 within a couple of weeks of each other? (Don't they realise the perfect pub only exists in mine own fertile imagination?). Methinks I smell a rat!

What to say? I've been drinking here for fifteen years, and insulted by John for all of them. I've learned to give back as good as I get...and since he got married to landlady Brigid, he has mellowed a little. Only a little :-) Beckets wouldn't be Beckets without him.

Wonderful cellar, the best jukebox in town (Alice Cooper to Ella Fitzgerald to The Wurzels, with everything you can think of in between). A robin who comes and sits on the edge of your glass, asking to be fed. A dog who has to be retrieved from the carpark every ten minutes.

An open fire from November to March. Food not served-so take in your own. Plates and cutlery provided on request!

And Beckets has the best ambience in Glastonbury. What more could anyone ask?

The Beckets Inn is a pub full of history the listed building still has many features of old especially the land lord John aka "Victor Meldrew" John can be whitty charming or down right grumpy but a loveable chap at that. Between himself and his lovely wife Brigid they can tell you all of Glastonbury's history and legends, and not least how to cook a good curry.
They bestow a warm welcome and gratitude apon all whom enter their little haven for the thirsty.
The garden is a sanctuary for wild life and some describe it as Glastonbury's best kept secret. Unless Brigid is screaming at John for a hand of course.The Inn has three Bars all very different from each other.They serve fine ales and hold excellent Themed Nights, Great Pub.5*
