Becks does not take reservations, although notification of parties over 9 people is recommended. The main selling point and one of the major credentials is that Becks offer gluten free options. All types of fish (Cod, Haddock, Hake, Plaice), scampi and pizzas are available with this option. For customers choosing to sit in the restaurant there is also a range of desserts on offer that are gluten free. Becks is the only fish and chip shop in a 6 mile radius that offer gluten free products.

“Fresh Fish.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2013

Eaten here twice on our recent holiday in Carbis Bay. On the road into Carbis Bay from Hayle to St Ives can be easily missed keep eyes open as you do not want to miss this delightful place to eat. Staff very polite and friendly. Fish very fresh and cooked to order so if busy you may have a wait but worth it. Portion size very good but you can also have small portions. Very busy and unfortunatly do not take bookings but turn around is quite quick.

“Great chippy & gluten-free available too”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2013

Very clean premises, friendly & helpful staff. Good quality, well-cooked food, and well-sized portions.
For ceoliacs out there, all their chips are GLUTEN-FREE and cooked separately from everything else. GLUTEN-FREE batter available for your fish.
We had take-aways, but there is also a large seating area, and lots of parking. Can't miss it, on your right just as you enter Carbis Bay on the road from Hayle to St Ives, with big orange sign.

“Best by FAR”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2013

You can quite easily miss this 'chippy' as you drive along the Hayle to Carbis Bay road. Make a point of looking out for it. We have only eaten in the the restaurant (recently refurbished) but if that is anything to go by then the take away must be brilliant. Huge portions (smaller on request). a good selection of fish, and specials, I had Monkfish which was very nice. Good service a very polite staff in the restaurant. Probably best to book in high season.
New wheelchair friendly entrance and disabled toilet.

“Lovely bit of fish!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 May 2013 via mobile

Very tasty fish and chips, fish covered in crisp golden batter and chips good quality though portion could have been a bit more generous. Overall I was impressed with quality and value for money was ok. Very popular with locals too which is always a good sign. Ate as takeaway so can't comment on restaurant overall would definitely recommend to others.

“Good Chippy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 May 2013 via mobile

Great food. The fish was nice as were the chips. They even had a veggie option which was great. Service was a bit on the slow side but worth the wait.
