For almost 30 years Becketts has been one of Southsea’s most loved restaurants with an amazing reputation for its consistency.

The current owners took over the venue in January 2016 holding a clear vision for its future. The aim was to bring Becketts back with a strong concept, attracting a cool crowd as well as retaining appeal to its loyal client base and sustaining its authenticity.

This Grade II listed building has been lovingly repaired, refurbished and meticulously brought back to life. Featuring 4 floors of hand made wood designs, cool marble, glass, steel and ambient lighting, the finished result is something very special and distinctively unique.

The Becketts team are so excited to show you our venue and will be happy to give you a tour, talk you through our delicious menu and serve you a drink in our elegantly designed bar.

We cater to groups of all sizes whether its a cosy meal for 2 or a wedding reception with 100 guests.

Checked TripAdvisor for a good Sunday lunch spot for 4 of us including granddaughters aged 7 and 10 and Becketts was listed. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal but one of us didn't order the roast so we think that probably delayed our meals coming out as most people were eating the roast dinner and people arriving after us had their meals served before us.

My roast beef was exceptionally chewy and I couldn't eat it; they handled the situation really well, took my meal away and replaced it with a complete new one shortly afterwards. The lady on the next table said she couldn't eat hers either but she didn't want another meal and they simply knocked the cost off their bill. My replacement beef was superb. It happens and they knew exactly how to deal with the situation and it wouldn't stop me going back.

The granddaughters really enjoyed their food; they're not fussy eaters and the meals were substantial.

Everything was impeccable. The only fault I’d say was, I ordered the scallops to start, which was £10, I expected to get at least 3, when it came out there was 3, but actually it was only 1, which had been sliced into 3, so it was about one healthy mouthful.

Everything was lovely apart from the fact that we booked a table for 21.15 but we were seated at 21.45. We arrived early for drinks and informed them we were there but when it got to 21.35 it seemed they might have forgotten us as there were many free tables and we were still waiting to be seated. I had to go and ask someone if we can sit for dinner yet and waited another ten minutes until we were finally seated.
However once seated the wine and food was excellent and the music was great and a great overall atmosphere.

The venue looks great since it's been refurbished.
The food and service were spot on, I had a really delicious steak.
Drinks were great, if not a touch expensive.
Sadly dessert options weren't very good so we opted to give those a miss, despite always looking forward to dessert.
Would recommend though.

Good food, only downside would be when we tried to change the type of egg on the full English from fried, we were told nothing could be changed ... yet you offer scrambled and poached eggs on other meals on the menu ... very odd and disappointing that a customers needs aren’t met when you’re already cooking these things?!

The service was good and the new extension very impressive.

My colleague enjoyed his burger, the salad was more interesting and fresh than the average side salad. However, I was disappointed in the croque monsieur. Although the ham was delicious, the bread was very thick and tough to eat.... I couldn't eat most of it.
I will be back - but will not be ordering the croque monsieur.

The music was loud dance music, which we didn't have before. When i went before it felt certificated, this time it felt like a Portsmouth Saturday night out. I suggest they work out who they want their clients to be. I probably we try the A bar next time.

had cocktails first then sat down at table, there were xmas crackers and we had a complimentary glass of pressco which was a nice touch.
didn't realise it was festive menu only but choices were very good, there were six of us and we were all very pleased with all the food couldn't fault it.....

We had a really lovely time at Becketts. Have been meaning to go there for ages and will certainly be going back. The pigeon breast in my starter was rather cool and when I reported this apologies were immediate as was the offer of a complimentary drink There was a long delay before the desert menu/delivery but otherwise the staff were superb. All of the food was cooked perfectly and delicious. Cant wait to go back.
