Last night me and Miguel decided to have dinner at Becketts, and what a great time we had. It was so nice to see Soraya and Jason. Miguel had the prawns again, as they were so delicious on our last visit, I went for the Brie which is now on my favourites list. The mains, of belly pork and sword... More

RESTAURANT'S FAVOURITE REVIEW
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 February 2017 via mobile

This was my first visit to Becketts in many years - and first since it reopened. We went for Sunday lunch and it was fabulous. The food was excellent - a great roast! We had drinks, puddings and coffee too - all were superb. Service was spot on - friendly and attentive but not at all intrusive. I'd highly recommend... More

This was my fiancé's and I first visit since under new owners and would just like to say that I think Soraya and Jason have done an amazing job, not only with the restaurant but with the decor, menu and staff. The welcome was as warm as the ambiance and the food and service (I think her name was Sarah)... More

A friend had told me about this restaurant, but she had not visited since it had been taken over and refurbished by the new owners. The atmosphere was very convivial, service all the way was very friendly and knowledgeable, but at the same time not intrusive. We were given tasters of a couple of red wines, to decide which to...

This is the 2nd time my husband and I have visited Becketts and we have already booked our 3rd before leaving. The restaurant has a great atmosphere and Elicia was a very attentive hostess as well. My husband opted for the topside beef and I opted for the lamb rump. Both were delicious and the Malbec (Phebus, Mendoza, Argentina) was... More

Visited on the 17th March with friends. The restaurant/bar are beautifully decorated. Our table was in the new section - the candles and woodburner gave a wondeful atmosphere. The food was amazing - tasted wonderful and beautifully presented. Our waiter was very polite and attentive. My friend requires gluten free and the waiter was knowledgeable of what she could eat...

Description
Becketts is a much loved bar and restaurant that has traded for over 30 years. Ideally located on Bellevue Terrace in Southsea (west) in a Grade II listed building that has recently undergone an extensive internal and external refurbishment by the new owners Jason & Soraya Parker. Exquisite attention to detail with a focus on brick, wood, glass and metals softened in the restaurant by crushed velvet seating and ambient lighting. Features include a Sonos wireless music system throughout, a magnificent private dining room seating 12/14 guests "on the round" with 55" TV/Bluetooth audio for family gatherings and small business meetings, ample local on-street car parking and luxuriously appointed rest rooms. The well-stocked bar offers a wide range of wines and champagnes, premium spirits, bottled lagers/beers/ales/ciders and plenty of non-alcoholic options for drivers. The food is modern British with a hint of Mediterranean lovingly prepared from local fresh ingredients by our Head Chef Chris Leaf and his team. Front of house is looked after by Jaime Risnd, the General Manager.
