Becketts is a distinctively unique venue housed inside 2 beautiful Grade II listed buildings. The owners are award-winning developers who took more than 2 years to meticulously bring back to life these most delicate, 200 year old townhouses.

The finished result is something very special, featuring 4 floors of hand made wood designs, a pioneering kitchen, several dining areas, 2 bars, a private dining room and 6 boutique bedrooms that have won the accolade of “Best Boutique Hotel” in Portsmouth.

Our Head Chef Jack has an inquisitive obsession for food, his biggest influence to date being his time working at Noma, voted 2nd best restaurant in the world in 2019 and currently holding 2 Michelin stars. He is passionate about local and wild ingredients, leading his 10-strong team into foraging to connect with the seasonality of food.

Whether you are brunching, drinking, dining or staying with us our friendly team will be sure to make you feel at home.

    Food clearly wasn't fresh or hot. Maybe it was because we booked later. For the price it definitely was not worth it and i wouldn't return. All the staff were polite and friendly

    This was a booking for drinks only. Service was excellent in particular Connor. Very polite and accommodating. The only feedback I would give is that the door doesn’t shut easy so we kept on having to get up and shut as it was quite cold. No bearing on the stars though. Great evening. Will be back for dinner.

    Becketts is a really lovely place to eat. Staff are wonderful just so friendly and lovely. I had roast pork which was delicious however the roast potatoes were clearly reheated and were inedible. The rest of the meal was delicious. I had choc orange torte for dessert which was delicious and very pretty but portion could have been bigger. Overall I would go again but strongly recommend that fresh potatoes are served up

    Booked in advance for a Saturday evening. The range of specials on offer was fantastic. I had fresh crab for starter and salmon for main, both were delicious. And you cannot go wrong with a tipsy mermaid. I love Becketts, for dinner, breakfast or a Sunday roast, it excels in all, never had a bad experience!

    Our selection of lamb was sold out at 7 45 for all of our party. Service was very slow and whilst the steaks were very good the abundance of kale spoit the dish. The sticky pork starter was very nice.

    The Sunday roast was nice but we went late in the afternoon and the roast potatoes on everyone's dinner were a bit hard. They were okay once you had cut into them but took an effort to do this. The rest of the food was lovely and very tasty. We had to ask to order because no one came to our table after sitting there for ages but once ordered the service was good. Been here a number of times and this is probably the first time I would have put any sort of negative comments down

    Not one to write reviews but the 5 star reviews that are listed for this business are very misleading as the menu is very limited service all over the place as too many staff and no one controlling sections so we had four separate staff serve us and thus had no check backs, waited a long time for order to be taking overall not the best experience and food very mediocre, my steak was though and very very fatty, chewy and not at all rested. My wife's gnocchi totally over cooked and a sauce that was totally over powered by blue cheese and my starter of ribs well... for £8.95 what a rip off with a serving of five small pieces and this is supposed to be there most popular starter. Its such a shame that the menu is not up to the fantastic decor and ambience could be a great venue but really should concentrate on more menu variety, portion sizes and staff service but don't get me wrong they were very pleasant staff just not trained well and not focussed and attentive. We unfortunately will not be returning all the best
