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.
The designers have put together this charming space, away from the bustle of the bar, to create a unique experience for our guests. With our chef’s exciting menu, complimented by a carefully selected wine list and your own dedicated waiters, The Bellevue Room is the ultimate way to celebrate your special day.
A seating plan with place cards can be arranged. Hand-made cakes with personal dedications are available upon request. A choice of background music can be provided in the private dining room, arranged by management approval.
The Bellevue Room will serve dinner Monday to Saturday and Roast Lunch on Sunday for up to 12 guests. Pre-ordering of food, wines and champagnes is recommended.
If you are in need of an intimate event space in the centre of Southsea, then look no further. We are well versed in everything from private parties, corporate meetings, festive celebrations to canapé parties plus much much more.
Becketts can be used as one large space or split into smaller areas as needed. A variety of layouts, seating and table arrangements means that we can cater for groups of up to 60 with individually designed packages to suit your requirements, including exclusive hire.
Please contact our events co-ordinator at info@BeckettsSouthsea.co.uk to discuss your requirements.
Stunning restaurant and our favourite and will always go there xx the staff are very friendly and the food is amazing
Staff were lovely and very attentive. Food was very very good with lovely flavours. great coctails and a nice choice of wines. I was realy very happy with our night here for my partners birthday and would definatly come again.
A family get together, so great food with the great company , gold Star Becketts
This has been our 6th/7th visit now and we just can’t help going back! Service is superb and the food is great and they always cater so well for our 3year old!
Cannot recommend it enough! Until the next time!
Friendly and attentive staff. Slight issue in that they’d run out of tiger prawns, but they replaced with luscious crab and gave us a complimentary drink. Can’t complain
The ambience was great with everyone in the restaurant enjoying themselves, and the music was loud enough to hear but not so loud that you couldn’t talk.
Recommended. Will be back.
We came to celebrate my Husbands Birthday. The food was absolutely fantastic and we both thoroughly enjoyed it. However we both found it to be quite loud, the music that was playing made it feel like we were in a club and not a restaurant. Also felt like we were sat too close to other guests, within 10 minutes of being there we had learnt where the table to our right had holidayed and about the table to our left's children. Not the place to go for a romantic meal but guessing it would be great as a group.
Had a great anniversary meal, always fab service and the food is superb, especially the Peppercorn sauce that comes with the steak, best I've ever had!
Excellent, friendly service, tasty food, good choice on the menu.
Such a lovely place , amazing tasty food and cool interiors. Can't wait to try out the hotel!
Great steaks cooked to perfection. Service very pleasant and friendly. Thank you. See you again soon.
Came here with my mother, grandmother and partner to celebrate an event. The atmosphere was lovely and relaxed, as well as the staff knowing just the right amount of attention to give.
The food was delicious, even though it was a bit pricey. However I can definitely understand the premium price considering how well the evening went!
Will definitely be back.
Wasn't sure whether to revisit after a disappointing meal when it first reopened many moons ago but was very surprised at how good it was. We didn't really want 2 courses but it was a set menu on the Sunday and although very good was filling. Personally, we would have preferred to have had the choice on how many courses to have but I understand that this is Becketts policy for this day.
3 roasts were had, all enjoyed, again very generous portion size. I had the sea bass which was lovely but over powered by the sauce, if I had known the whole dish would be covered with it, I would have specified to have it just over the fish....personal choice though.
Will revisit for sure, having had a bad experience the first time, this has turned it around for us. Great attentive staff, nothing was too much trouble.
Thank you for a lovely lunch.
1st time here. Has a good reputation. Liked the decor, music & ambiance. Didn’t like the tables in rows on top of each other. Wine & food menu very good, lots of choice. Food was very good. Service was slow. Friendly staff. Would go with friends but not with my fiancé.
Overall a lovely quality meal for my partner and myself. Quality was superb. Service was good. And overall the cost for what we experienced was about right. So well done Becketts.
My major gripe was the price of the Beer. A bottle of Doombar was £6.50!!!. I was drinking beer in Paris a couple of weeks ago that was cheaper.
The price of the drinks did not spoil a fab dinner date at all, but just be aware of the cost.
Unfortunately, the wine was much too warm, white and red.
Friendly atmosphere, good food and good choonz too!
Will be back without fail!
The second time I've taken guests for Sunday Lunch to Becketts. Not to be missed. Friendly staff, and the food is presented excellently. All round a huge step apart from the standard 'cheap and cheerful pub carvery that seems to be everywhere. Looking forward to returning. I highly recommend their roast beef..
One of the best restaurants we have been to for a long time. Great choice for our Anniversary.
Spent a lovely evening catching up with a friend - atmosphere great - food superb - had the seabass , beans were crunchy which I love. Coming back on Saturday with some other friends!
Great service, great food. Whilst not a huge menu choice, there is something for everyone
Service a little slow. Food was excellent and cocktails were wel made. Great to see some quality spirits behind the bar!
My friend and I arrived early so decided to have a cocktail. Liz chose one from the list and I asked for a gin martini. Hers was nice and spicy and my martini was ok - not quite chilled enough and the twist garnish far too small. As the lady bartender said it was her first attempt at making one, it was fine. We were seated and our order taken. Wine and water were served, the wine, Montepulcciano, was served at a perfect temperature in good shaped glasses - delicious albeit not cheap. We seemed to wait quite a long time for our starters and when they arrived, I thought the presentation of Liz's mackerel pate was poor - dumped on the plate with a tiny piece of broken bread. My whitebait was fine, hot and crispy. I couldn't judge the tartare sauce as mayo does not agree with me but it looked home made. Mains were soon delivered and Liz said her sea trout fillets were delicious. I chose the belly pork which was tasty but I didn't understand the £6.50 supplement for what is, in effect, a cheaper cut. We were too full for dessert but the selection seemed to be interesting. I had a coffee which was good. After a small problem with the bill (I had a voucher which had not been credited) it was soon put right and we left more than happy with the meal and atmosphere. I certainly couldn't afford to eat there regularly but as an occasional treat it fitted the bill. The staff were excellent and enthusiastic and hopefully we will return soon.
What a great evening, made a 6th date even more enjoyable! The service we had was second to none so we’ll done! Thanks again :)
The steak was recommended to us by a friend and it didn’t disappoint. My wife said it was the best steak she had ever had!
We met up in a 3 at Becketts after being recommended by another friend. We were blown away! We will 100% be returning - the food was absolutely astounding, the restaurant was clean / tidy and had such an amazing feel to it. The servers were brilliant all night: they kept on top of water top ups, making conversation with us in general and checking in.
We thoroughly enjoyed Becketts, the atmosphere was good, food amazing and the general overall service was outstanding. We would happily go back!
See my review on Becketts at TripAdvisor, a good place to go
Excellent food and service. Well impressed. First time since the restaurant changed hands, and we all had great food and loved the layout. Will definitely come again.
Great night again, second visit even better,
Will be back soon.
Best fillet steak I’ve had for a while, great for cocktails.
Staff friendly and attentive
Amazing food, staff, atmosphere. Highly recommend. Will definitely be going back
Had a lovely evening with friends celebrating a 50th birthday. Had pleasant drinks by the bar on arrival before going through for our meal. I was really impressed with the presentation of the bar area and we found all the staff very attentive. The food was excellent, well presented and cooked as requested. Highly recommend!
Took a client there for a business meal. Playing loud club music while people are having dinner is not on, I was so embarrassed. Thanks god my client made a joke about it, asking where about was the dance floor. Real shame as the food is nice. Probably great for a hendo or before a night out but not really for anything else... we could barely each other talk.
Great food and amazing vibe. Would highly recommend
Lovely food, attentive staff. The only negative is the loud music which has been mentioned on other reviews. It was our wedding anniversary and we couldn't hear each other speak. they did turn it down when we asked.
Lovely refurb, very nice attentive staff without being over the top. Starters arrived quickly and so good! Main was a new one on your menu and feedback was actively encouraged - Pork belly was so tender, samphire lovely, sauce fabulous but more sauce please!
We all arrived spot on time but were told we had to be seated immediately because the seating process was staggered? Not sure what that meant, but we remained at the same table all night and were one of the very last tables to leave, so I do not see why we could not have a 10 min drink in the bar. In addition we had two bottles of wine added to our bill which we had not purchased during the evening. It was only on my insistence on checking the bill that the error was discovered. Whilst the staff were apologetic, it should not have happened. My discovery recused our overall bill by £37.00.
A good cocktail selection and overall bar selection was good. I had a roasted vegetable salad which came with flatbread, hummus and chickpeas. This was delicious the flat breads were homemade and I could have had more than they served up. With my main I had to send the steak back (ordered it rare but it came out medium, was still a lovely steak medium just I like mine a bit more ‘bloody’) but when it came back it was amazing. Thoroughly enjoyed our food and by this point we were too full for a dessert. Staff were really friendly and very attentive. So glad we came here for our anniversary rather than a well known chain restaurant. Would go back if we were in Portsmouth again around a special occasion.
Superb restaurant, we would definitely return. Excellent service and top food. Great ambience too.
Excellent food, service and ambience. Would highly recommend.
Fantastic food, amazing service that can not be faulted. Great value for money. Overall experience at Becketts was brilliant.
