Nice but a little disappointed with roast

Four of us went for dinner as we enjoy going to Becks. The service was great. My Husband and I got the roast but found it rather disappointing as it didn't have many veggies with a small amount of meat. We do enjoy eating here but will not get the roast again.

We entertained a relative here just before Christmas. It was a busy restaurant and our waitress, though cheerful, was rushed off her feet. It has a bistro atmosphere. My wife ordered roast beef, which arrived burnt with undercooked potatoes. It had to be sent back. Other meals were adequate. We found out from the waitress that one or more members... More

Best wedges & sour cream in Christchurch! We visit regularly & have never been disappointed. Overall atmosphere could be improved slightly but we don't mind as it's really about the company. :-)

We had a Grabone voucher so visited on a Thurday night while in Christchurch. There was a good selection of meals to choose from and local ales on tap. The food was tasty and well presented and arrived quickly. Atmosphere was good and the service was great. The staff were friendly, well informed about the dishes and free with smiles.... More

I am absolutely disgusted in the service we received from the manager, the waiters weren't that great either. The food was absolutely terrible and took 45 minutes to come out. I ordered the becks burger which is a beef burger. It came out with a piece of chicken stuck to the side of the beef pattie and the burger was... More

Pleasantly surprised by our experience at Becks Southern Alehouse. I ordered an Eye Fillet Steak and was honestly expecting an ok experience but nothing great. I was wrong the steak was cooked perfect and the wine to compliment was spot on.

We have a lovely dinner in this local bar. The NZ lamb is good, also we tried out some local beers. It is located on Colombo street toward the Southern end. Staffs are friendly, and coffee shop offering good desert only across the road(Coffee Culture).

We popped along to Becks after purchasing a discount voucher. The venue is a bit dark and unwelcoming however we had a waitress who was pleasant…not great but pleasant. The food on the dinner menu is overpriced for what it is and the fact that it is a pub! I had a stuffed chicken breast wrapped in filo pastry on... More
