Description: 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.

To sit in and enjoy freshly cooked fish and chips - a treat. The only downside (if you want to call it that) is the waiting time for a table. Beautiful food, lovely atmosphere. We will be back!

Very nice chippy, doing a roaring trade. Didn't eat in the restaurant side, preferring to have take-away. Good selection on the menu and portion sizes are very generous. A full portion of chips would easily share between 2 when had with a fish (which is also huge).

Having been recommended this restaurant, we wanted to try it. Warm reception from staff, light and area bar/waiting area, obviously very busy despite early in the season, it was clearly appreciated by its customers. Starter options were reasonably wide, with an excellent help-yourself salad bowl available. The portions of fish and chips were generous, very nicely cooked, with crispy batter and without any taint over overused fat. Washrooms were in excellent condition, and newly refurbished too. The only two downsides were that we were not able to fit in any dessert - despite some tantalising choices on display - and the restaurant was very hot.

We loved this restaurant. The bar is comfy while you wait to be seated, and the hostess Jackie is lovely ready to have a chat. The food is reliable. The chips are amazing, such a generous portion too. I tried the salad bar twice and it had a wide variety of salads and raw vegetables. However it does not appear on the menu so unless you ask you wont know you can order it. Its £4.95 for a side salad if memory serves.
You can order a steak, but why would you when the cod and chips are so delicious.
In April they were open Thursday to Sunday, but this should change soon.

You know that Becks is something special when you have to queue for a parking space( we estimated 50+cars) and the carry-out queue is served from a separate kitchen from the sit-in restaurant...and all this on an low-season, April Saturday at 7pm. And it is special.. and we didn't wait long either! Crisp tasty gluten free batter, beautiful fish and scampi, real potato chips - all carefully handled and prepared with dedicated utensils and fryer. Worth the 800mile round trip!
