7 Reviews for Speight’s Ale House
Thank-you for making it a good experience!
We ordered 2 steak (med rare) and salads with sides of fries, fairly easy pub meal I would have thought.
It was a Wednesday night The service was less than average, with the waitress putting more emphasis on shoving booze down us, the meal took nearly an hour to come out I had to go and ask where it was..and as far as I could see we were the only ones eating, when the steaks finally came out they looked like rubber and were way over done, I guess its my fault for having high expectations, put this on par with a bad experience I had once at Chillikiwi on Papanui Road, some people and businesses just don’t get it, it’s about the food and service and the way it’s presented that keeps people coming back.
Id go their again for a beer, but never a meal.
If you love watching sports on the numerous large screens, and generous servings of well presented food….then this is your place!
Great things about the venue are the service, young vibrant bar and restaurant staff are always on the ball…. large indoor/outdoor eating area, local and imported bands now and then…. ambiance is casual, fun, friendly.
Good things are the menu, large servings, variety ok, but could do with more vegetarian options, decor is a talking point…… oldest local pigs head…(passed humanely so I am told!)…. and sports paraphernalia.
EXCEPTIONAL things are the fabulously sagacious host. Mr Andrew Norton is the host with the most! Welcoming and always takes time out to make his guests feel special…..
Appealing, entertaining and you walk away feeling satisfied…..value for money.
Great varied menu to choose from.(Beware the large portions).
Service good and very friendly hosts.
First visit was so impressive that we took several members of family in NZ for a last night meal together before returning to UK.
Thanks for a memorable evening.
