We had the choice of 2 courses out of a 3-course menu and selected the entre and mains. The seafood chowder was very enjoyable. The garlic bread was good but the enormous serve was sufficient for 3 people. The fish of the day was good as was the steak with pepper sauce washed down with your choice of Speights beer.... More

We cruised in for dinner tonight as our daughter wanted to go for her birthday. I naively forgot to make a booking and when we arrived were told by the owner that a table would be half an hour or so away (no probs for us). However, a table of four people over heard our conversation and kindly vacated their... More

Had our first meal at this restaurant the other night for our wedding anniversary. Probably not the most romantic of places for a special occasion, being a bar with large televisions screening sport. But as it was a Tuesday night, we weren't expecting it to be so busy! Were we surprised! We both enjoyed a generous meal and the staff... More

We recommend this restaurant for a nice, quiet, lazy Sunday lunch or if you want a more upbeat atmosphere, Friday or Saturday nights. The meals are very reasonable and large enough to satisfy all appetites.

Speights is well known for its micro brewery ales and its own superb range, so not surprising, this outlet in Invercargill is just lovely. Sit outside and watch the world go by and enjoy the ale.
