We were completing the Otago Rail Trail and were looking for somewhere to eat on our night stay over in Lauder. After going to the Lauder Hotel, where it seemed impossible to get food, we contacted Karen at the Beck Pub. She picked us up and dropped us off which was helpful with our tired legs and the chance to...

It's become a family tradition to take a trip here when we are in Central Otago just to have some bowl s of their garlic butter fries. You have to try them. As always the publican has time to have a good yarn to you, as well.

Last time we visited it was just a pub but now it is part of an antique shop called The Glory Box. I must say the quality stock was all reasonably priced. Had a nice wander around. We had lunch earlier up the road at St Bathans so no need to eat here today.

Drove by and saw the antiques sign ... Stopped for a coffee on Sunday morning and enjoyed the company of the publican and his wife and looked around. This is a well worthwhile stop on your historic Dunstan drive. Coffee and hospitality was great ... And i am sure the beers would be also, if we had a nominated driver....

We recently had our wedding at the Community Hall in Becks. Karen and Gary ran the bar simply and efficiently, made delicious salads for the after match BBQ and also managed to to take great care of our guests who stated at the pub. We would not hesitate to recommend them for catering situations such as ours, or to just...

I have never had the pleasure of staying here, but I have had the pleasure of experiencing Karen and Gary's fine hospitality. I was raised in Becks and over last xmas came back to get married in the area. Alot of our guests stayed there and Karen and Gary couldn't have done enough for them. Lastly I must mention Karen...

Having visited the White Horse Hotel a number of times over the last month, we simply can't say enough good things about the place, the people or the food. Slightly off the beaten tourist track, Beck's White Horse Hotel is the real deal - the place the locals call in to catch up on the gossip over a cold brew...

When in Central Otago we often take a side trip up to the White Horse Hotel in Becks for an evening meal. Gary and Karen are very hospitable hosts and nothing is too much of a problem for them. We especially like Karen's blue cod meal which is consistently good and Gary keeps the beer at a perfect cold temperature...

It was a great idea getting the complimentary pick up from Lauder and staying at the White Horse Hotel a few minutes away in Becks, population 4. Hosts Grant and Karen went out of their way to make us welcome. From Becks it is a worth a trip to the old goldmining towns of St Bathans and Cambrian. It was...
