Outstanding meal for 12 people. No one was disappointed with the fantastic service and top quality food. Big meals served so be aware of ordering up large. Beer with a meal is a must!

After the waitress explained the specials board, I asked to have the main... More

Last night 6 friends and I had a birthday celebration meal at the Ale House. We all had fantastic meals (the chicken marvels are amazing). Great service, great food, great atmosphere. Highly recommend the Speights Ale House,
