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

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
