Came here for first time since it reopened last year, and was blown away. The decor is stunning, the staff are lovely, and the cocktails are plentiful - and that's before you even sat down. We came for Sunday lunch, and it was - without exaggeration - the best roast I've had out, in Portsmouth, in over a decade. It... More

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

We had dinner here last night. On arrival, I noted that the waiting staff, did not meet my eye and after standing for a couple of minutes, I had to ask to be seated. We sat with the menu for 25 mins before I stopped a waiter and asked to order. Order given and food arrived in a reasonable time.... More

My Husband and I decided to go for dinner the day after valentines. Becketts has a wonderful modern cosy warm and welcoming atmosphere, the lighting was great, perfect for a romantic meal. I had a cocktail while I waited for our starter, we both had the chilli and garlic prawns, which were really tasty and the fillet steak was cooked... More

We had Sunday lunch back in the summer after just opening, disappointed. Went back last night super staff, super atmosphere, new extension is fantastic, food and drink a delight. Like a different restaurant. Well done to everyone involved especially the multi talented Jamie. We'll be back for sure xxx

I haven't been to this restaurant for many years - so I was looking forward to a surprise birthday meal there. The room we had was lovely and had a tround table - which is always better for a larger party. The food was excellent and very tasty - will come back again soon.

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.
