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.

Been using Becketts for all speial occasions and even staff xmas party, always great service, atmosphere and most of all great food, seafood my favourite, always look out for the specials board, and steaks excellent to.
If your ever visiting Portsmouth and want a special place to eat out choose Becketts, may cost a little bit more than some, but for special occasion well worth it.

Went here with friends last week, our first visit for about 6 years! Food excellent and still a very well run establishment with Miguel at the helm and still very popular.I had the Pork medallions with Calvados cream sauce,very nice indeed.All our party were more than happy with our dishes. Will return sooner.

We have been going to Becketts for over 18 years now and the place never fails to deliver great food .
Always has a buzz about the place.
On our recent visit we shared the Calamari with lemon mayo , the best i have ever had anywhere, always cooked to perfection , so tender.
For mains we both had Fillet steaks with peppercorn sauce , skinny fries and white cabbage and bacon.
The steaks here are again just the most flavoursome and tender you can find anywhere.
Unfortunatley neither of us were able to manage dessert , but i can highly recommend the Chocolate bread and butter pudding, so so good.
Becketts is a great place for all occasions.
The Menu has varied little over the years but as they say if it an't broke dont fix it !
We have no problem with the wide choice of starters ,mains and desserts being the same after all these years
