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

This place is my local and it is easy for me just to drift in; plenty of parking and the meals are ok but. . . . I know that the service will be very slow (up to 40 minutes for the roast of the day for which you would think they would be well prepared) and if the screens... More

Went to Becks - our local eatery, with some old friends as we had a lot of catching up to do. Lots of chatter and reminising.Had got a voucher on Grab One so this made the evening more affordable. The menu is quite pricey for pub food I thought. The meal was very slow to come out but it was... More

We had recently moved into the area and were hoping that that this would be a regular eating place for us. Not to be. We had a wait and had been warned about that, but the meals were disappointing. it didn't appear to be a very busy night. My husband's meat was inedible and even though he didn't eat much... More

I went to Becks Southern Alehouse for a meal with friends. I'd always been a bit suspicious of the appearance of the place so was hardly disappointed when the service I received was extremely slow and the food only average when it arrived. The highlight of the meal was when a companion suggested that his order of Fish and Chips... More

Visited here on Saturday 5 April and whilst we had some very tasty bread and dips things went downhill from there. Ended up leaving after a 50 minute wait for mains and a conversation with the manager that beggared belief. He denied the length of the wait, notwithstanding till docket evidence to the contrary, and appeared more concerned at the... More

After previously eating here 3 times in the last 9 months, as its our local i have to say this last visit in September was the best yet. On our previous visits, the food was not up to standard and we had to complain twice. However, since the chef has been changed, what a difference!!! We had a really wonderful... More

Nice quite place for a Tuesday lunch. Was not rushed. Good meal and service. Took my ex Mother in Law and she really enjoyed her fish and chip lunch parking right outside. May not always be possible but a bonus today. Have been before and will go again.

As this restaurant is in our local suburb we have visited this "pub" a few times before and found the food to be reasonable value for money, however on this occassion we were horrified to be informed (with no apology) we would not be seated, at 7.45pm on a Sunday, because the kitchen was closing! The Christchurch restaurant scene is... More
