Having read the fantastic reviews Becket's has on tripadvisor we decided to book for Sunday lunch. The whole experience was amazing from entering the lovely restaurant building to eating the final mouthful of our desserts. The service was fantastic, the wine was lovely, the food was gorgeous with very good sized portions. As new residents in knaresborough we will be looking for our next opportunity to dine at Becket's.

We enjoyed an absolutely fabulous meal at this restaurant. Everything we had was delicious. The service was exceptional from the moment we arrived. We will most definitely be going back!

Second visit to this superb restaurant on Sat (23 Feb) & once again it met & exceeded all our expectations. We love the ambience, the decor & the general feel of the place - extremely warm & welcoming & relaxed. The food was superb once again as was the service. Wine was excellent although if there was 1 comment I would make is that as a lover of a certain style of red wine, I would prefer descriptions/tasting notes of each wine on the wine list together with ABVs to help select the most appropriate wine possible.
Overall, superb & we'll definitely be coming back - we live in Knaresborough & this place is long overdue and an absolute Godsend!

I work in Knaresborough but live in Harrogate, I feel I would not have heard of Beckets but for friends at work and customers talking about it. We went last night for my birthday and I really was not disappointed. The staff the atmosphere were very good and most importantly the food was fantastic. What I did like were the 'wee' extras like the birthday balloon on our table,they took a photo of us and then handed it to us as a momento also hooks for your hand bag so they don't sit on the floor which you can take home. A wonderful evening and we will certainly be going back.

Many thanks for taking the time to write a review.
I am delighted we were able to help make your birthday a memorable one and I'm glad you appreciated our 'wee extras.'
It is also very gratifying to see that good things are being said about us, and that 'word of mouth' is working in our favour.
I look forward to seeing you again very soon.

We dined here because we had been let down by another restaurant,we were the first into an empty place but the Irish chap who I think I as a co owner made us feel really welcome.
We opted for the set Sunday lunch menu at 19.95 for 3courses ,it proved faultless!
Other diners filled the place later which was nice as I feared it was a gem that no on frequented

All in all top marks from me and the other half ,most enjoyable

I'm glad we were able to 'step into the breach' when you were let down with your other booking.
It was a pleasure to meet you and discuss the history of the building and the recent refurbishment; and I am delighted you enjoyed your meal.

It is such motivation for us to know we are getting it right in most cases.

Look forward to seeing you again the next time you are in Knaresborough.

Thank you once again, and indeed thanks to all our recent reviewers for their kind and encouraging comments.
