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.

Queuing outside the door! However they have so many staff who are extremely organised, you are seen to in no time at all. I would have given the full 5 as the service was great, chips were nice, as was the curry sauce. The fish however was slightly overcooked and a bit dry. Definitely going back though.

We ate out at Becks twice during our stay in Carbis Bay. Once with a friend who is a Coeliac. She finds it difficult to find gluten free fish and chips back home and was delighted to find lots of choice both in mains and desserts. Most of us had fish and chips in batter the first time and portions were huge. The batter was very light and the fish soo fresh. The second occasion we chose a special from the board of a special type of sole. Swimming about in the bay earlier that day! Pan fried it was delicious.

We have eaten here many times before in the past but not for a while. The menu has now expanded and a lot more gluten free options are available including desserts, salad bar etc. The gluten free batter on the fish is light, crispy and not greasy at all - you would never believe that it was gluten free! We did not have to wait more than a few minutes to be shown to our table and the food was freshly cooked and extremely hot. Service was good and we would recommend this restaurant to all.

I'm not a big fan of fish and chips, but eating this certainly changed my view. It was good, hot and fresh food which tasted good.

The staff are friendly, the food is affordable, and really yummy too... This explains the long queues, but amazingly, the queues move fairly swiftly. I will definitely revisit when next I am in the area.

The only bad thing I can say about this, is that it doesn't open every day, which I am sure a whole load of people will like to change.
