We visited Becks for brunch/lunch on Saturday a week or so ago. We arrived at 11.30 for our 12 o'clock booking, we were the first patrons to arrive. The barmaid did not make eye contact or crack a smile once, although there was a more pleasant barman who was better to deal with. We got our menus and waited some time before having our orders taken. We ordered a garlic loaf, it was doughy, cold, tasteless and the garlic was raw and overpowering. The menu is small, with only about 5 items to choose from. My husband attempted to order a "big breakfast" only to be told there was no tomatoes or sausages so the meal would be without these... He opted for eggs benedict instead, and my friend and I ordered beer battered fish. Our meals were bought out by the unhappy barmaid some time later, without cutlery. My husbands meal consisted of 1 piece of ciabata BREAD (not toast) with 1 hard poached egg on the top, along with a piece of bacon and some hollandaise. My fish meal was better, but small and not worth the $22 we paid for it. As we were paying at the end of our meal, a woman stormed out thanking the staff for their lack of service (due to the fact she had stood at the counter waiting to be seated for an excessive amount of time). They were unapologetic, and happy to let her leave. All in all, a very disappointing outing. My advice - opt fo a Speights Ale House. They appear to have service standards to adhere to, and it is a shame that this "Becks Ale House" is trying to ride in on their coat tails.
