My wife and I went here with friends for dinner on Valentine's day. Pub atmosphere. Good fish and chips (fried cod) and delicious prime rib at reasonable prices. Polite and informed service. Gluten free desserts.

We discovered Beckham's when they were in Osprey - we enjoyed our food and the dancing on the occasional Friday. The move to Sarasota was a longer drive but well worth it. This recent move has brought Beckham's a bit closer to us, as our home is in Venice, and we still enjoy the great food and service. Annie, George... More

Great place, great pub food and ambiance. Typical UK pub style eats. Great for families as well as a watering hole.

Service was good. It was quiet and not crowded. I got the fish a d chops which are a favorite or that's what the menu says. It was ok. Steak fries were good, and a small piece of cod . The breading was good but like I said just average. I also had mushy peas which are pureed sweet peas.... More

We had wings and fries! Couldn't even tell they were gf. Will def go back! All the other food looked great too and... More

Yes, you read that right!! Gluten Free fish and chips!! Not just any fish & chips, but FABULOUS fish & chips! The best we've eaten since London, before my husband was diagnosed with Celiac Disease and was forced to go gluten-free! These folks have a large GF menu and a dedicated section in their kitchen, so no worries about cross... More

Wanted some home cooking tonight and this fit the bill. Served with a side salad; perfect for what I wanted. Their hamburgers are great, too. My very favorite is their chicken wings with various sauces. A wonderful local place.

I used to visit Beckhams often on 41. When they moved I heard all bad things about the new place..smaller, darker, food wasn't as good etc. So I finally waited long enough and went last night with my wife and was pleasantly surprised. We both had the fish and chips. Was absolutely delicious. Maybe even better then the old place.... More

Ordered their "famous" fish & chips, lunch portion. Server recommended the mashed peas. I don't eat fries,but no substitute was offered. Results were a pile of soggy everything! It was pea soup running underneath the fries & the fish was soggy. Couldn't eat it, server asked if I was done, she didn't ask why I didn't eat my lunch. Never... More

They recently moved to a new locale at Plaza at Palmer Ranch, 8579 S Tamiami Trail, Sarasota, FL 34238, but otherwise have not changed. The service is very good, atmosphere casual and comfortable, clean, very good food and the best gluten free options you can find around this area! Go and enjoy a nice, reasonable dinner out there.
