Description: Becks was first established in 1971 named 'John Becks' by the man himself, a local farmer looking for a new direction after selling his dairy herd. Becks is a family run business owned by the Stone family. They purchased the business in 1986 and currently have nine members of the family working there. Since then Becks has expanded into a restaurant with bar and lounge area to complement the still thriving take-away. The restaurant area itself seats over 100 people. Becks does not take reservations, although notification of parties over 9 people is recommended. The main selling point and one of the major credentials is that Becks offer gluten free options. All types of fish (Cod, Haddock, Hake, Plaice), scampi and pizzas are available with this option. For customers choosing to sit in the restaurant there is also a range of desserts on offer that are gluten free. Becks is the only fish and chip shop in a 6 mile radius that offer gluten free products.

“Lovely bit of fish!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013 via mobile

Very tasty fish and chips, fish covered in crisp golden batter and chips good quality though portion could have been a bit more generous. Overall I was impressed with quality and value for money was ok. Very popular with locals too which is always a good sign. Ate as takeaway so can't comment on restaurant overall would definitely recommend to others.

“Good Chippy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013 via mobile

Great food. The fish was nice as were the chips. They even had a veggie option which was great. Service was a bit on the slow side but worth the wait.

“Easy to miss - don't”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013 via mobile

Hidden establishment on road to st ives - from the outside you would not venture in. But do - very busy clearly driven by the quality if its food. We all had the fish and chips mushy peas/curry combo - doesn't everybody - and it was spot on. Will go again when we next visit.

“Remember to shout your order”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013 via mobile

Beautiful food worth a visit with put a doubt. The only down side is that you have to shout your order if its something that's not to popular, we do this in local chippies however they aren't full of people :( defo worthy of a visit though lovely cod n chips and reasonable prices
