“Great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

Yum yum yum! Great range of food options. I'm a vegetarian and I had several yummy dishes to choose from. The food is well priced and hearty. There is a roaring fire place and great atmosphere. We did a Speights Brewery Tour and Lunch package - highly recommended.

“Speight's Alehouse - Great Food, Facilities and Folk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

Eating here is not posh... if you are looking for table linen and poncy little meals lost on a big white plate then you are in the wrong place. My meal here was GREAT - good servings and a great steak cooked the way I requested. Side dishes were not extra and so excellent value for money. The service was brilliant - always checking to see if drinks were okay, and if the meal was to our satisfaction. Our waitress ensured drinks were 'hand made' no out of the bottle lemon, lime and bitters here. The atmosphere is slightly pubby but it spacious and warm - all one could ask for. Would highly recommend!

“Great waitress”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

We went here after our tour as part of the package, my only gripe was that the fish and chips were a little oily. Positives were that the portions were huge, the garlic bread was half a loaf of bread!
Beer was cold, waitress was wonderfully attentive and for the price you'd be a dope not to have this after a tour.

“Did the tour and had a meal and drinks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

The tour was brilliant, enjoyed every minute of it. The alehouse was beautifully set out and the decor fantastic. The staff honestly couldnt give a stuff about the customers, they are obviously just there to make extra money for Uni. The meal wasnt too bad and drinks good value. One think I didnt like was they took my credit card from me or wouldnt let me order a meal or drinks. I dont like that.
