About
Becketts is a distinctively unique venue housed inside 2 beautiful Grade II listed buildings. The owners are award-winning developers who took more than 2 years to meticulously bring back to life these most delicate, 200 year old townhouses. The finished result is something very special, featuring 4 floors of hand made wood designs, a pioneering kitchen, several dining areas, 2 bars, a private dining room and 6 boutique bedrooms that have won the accolade of “Best Boutique Hotel” in Portsmouth. Our Head Chef Jack has an inquisitive obsession for food, his biggest influence to date being his time working at Noma, voted 2nd best restaurant in the world in 2019 and holding 2 Michelin stars. He

Me and my family took a chance and tried our luck with a walk in for a Friday meal. The staff were so helpful squeezing us in on an obviously busy Friday night. Not only that but they went out of their way to help...my other half feel at home with our 3 week old newborn - which she was very nervous about. The food was incredible and the drinks menu ticked all the boxes - this was my our first time in years eating at becketts and what the new management has done has ensured we will once again make this our regular date night location!More

This was my second stay at becketts and was so looking forward to it as it was amazing last time. Unfortunately was really disappointed that no breakfast was available and was just handed a breakfast bag on check in. There was no mention on booking...that breakfast was not available and looking at reviews, a previous hotel guest in May mentions the fab breakfast! So what happened as no explanation, just orange juice, disappointing muffin and fruit. Not the same and very unexpected. Also no discount on cost of room! Humph! What a let downMore

We are sorry you were let down by our breakfast offering during your weekday stay. All our bookings confirmations state we do not offer breakfast during the weekdays and our rates during the week reflect the lack of cooked breakfast during the week. The breakfast...More

What a great hotel. The staff were fab as was the local. There's onroad parking just outside the hotel, which is fine. Breakfast was great and the bar at night is equally good. Would definitely recommend this hotel

I visited Becketts with my family for the reopening on the 17th May 2021 and it was amazing ! I had the Jack the Lad burger and it was to die for it had so much flavour and even the chips had some sort of...seasoning on them which finished them off perfectly, for dessert I had the chocolate torte which lived up to all the hype ! Couldn’t fault becketts they never fail to impress every time I go, definitely recommend!More

I recently visited Becketts for a business meeting. We were greeted in a friendly way, with efficient service and a good wait time on food. The atmosphere couldn't have been better and the food was incredible. Hats off to team Becketts, it's no wonder they...continue to win awards. Thoroughly recommend visiting if you haven't already.More

Lovely COVID secure night out in a very welcoming environment. Our temperature was checked on arrival. We had already booked in and off to our decent sized table in one of the back rooms It was well ventilated inside but still warm. The service was...attentive but not pestering. Food very tasty. They could do with a more exciting IPA but the one I had was good enough. A great night out.More
