Gorgeous food!

The food is delicious, very very up-market pub grub. Only it was about $5 per course too expensive. I liked the cheery atmosphere (but not too cheery, it was easy to hold a conversation on a big table still. And they tried a little to hard to be nice to you. But I would go again for sure.

We were very surprised at the quality of our meal. Not sure if there's a new chef as the food was so much better than anytime before. Our daughter ordered had the roast which we'd had before and been really disappointed with but last night we were very impressed. A good sized meal with a good variety of vegetables and... More

We had dinner here on a February evening and were sufficiently impressed that we returned for lunch a few days later. The menu offers a good choice for all tastes and the food is off good quality, well prepared and well presented. Service was excellent and friendly, although it did take a little longer than expected for the main course... More

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
