The Alehouse was a convenient place to go for dinner. We had lamb and chowder. The beer and wine selection was great. The food and service were very good.

Good tours with great tasting and beer drinking! Worth going on brewery tour, a lot of rich history in the ale house and behind the scenes view.

I absolutely love the DUNEDIN Speight's Ale House. I have had dinner there this year over 10 times this year and have never been let down. It is such a busy restaurant, so early reservations I strongly recommend. I usually go there with my boyfriend however and manage to get a seat in the bar and can dine in there.... More

Dined here with a couple of friends. Atmosphere was good but a little noisy, so not ideal for dinning and quiet conversation. Wait staff were excellent and friendly and only to eager to ask what you like and then make suggestions. I had the Lamb Shanks with roasted vegetables and mash potato. I ordered the large which consisted of 2... More

Was travelling for work from Australia (I'm a kiwi but live in Australia). I thought I couldn't go wrong with this place but the steak was one of the toughest bits of steak I have ever had. I even struggled to cut it with a steak knife. I was expecting a good piece of Sirloin as it was $28. I... More

Order the Burger if you're hungry for Lunch. The beef burger was really tasty. At night, I was disappointed with the Beef schnitzel , that was "fried" not cooked.

I ate here often 10 years ago when I lived in Dunedin. I recently returned for Business and took my boss out for an evening meal. The Beer here is always good, and this time was no different. Our meals were also of very high quality and more than enough to feed even a large appetite. Atmosphere is great with... More
