Loved it. Great food. The lamb salad was perfect. Best I’ve eaten for a long time. Also had the venison. Great too. Would go back if we visit again

On arriving back to NZ decided to meet with family here at the Speights Ale House, we were fortunate in getting an outside table in the sun. The service was excellent as the staff were attentive and responsive. The menu had the normal selection of tavern meals. The atmosphere was very relaxed with a variety of clientele.

Thanks for a wonderful evening. We couldn’t fault this place at all. Friendly, welcoming and staff kept checking on table making sure we were all good for drinks etc. we sat downstairs at a table for 6, very comfortable. I liked the bit of separation from the bar area. They had an upstairs area too. I had a lamb salad which was delicious. Others at our table enjoyed a steak, fish & chips and chicken. We will definitely be back.

Good location by the information center and bus stop. Reasonable variety of dishes and good choice of fish catches of the day.
Drinks are available and of the tap beer, local wine, are the favorites. Good for casual dining with friends and family.

Always come here for a special family get together as they are always consistent from the time you step in. Staff are awesome. Food is well cooked and presented and reasonably priced.
