Had dinner here with 4 friends while staying in Christchurch overnight. The venue has a great vibe with good food. The prices are good value & good quality. The staff are friendly & attentive. Would definitely recommend this hotel

Great atmosphere and service. Advisable to book.I had the slow cooked beef cheeks and theory were to die for. Wines are on the expensive side. Overall very happy with both meals.

We dined two nights in a row with large group of friends and family. There is something on the menu for everyone and enough variety to go more than once. Friendly staff and lively atmosphere. Very enjoyable.

New place on the edge or far edge of downtown. It is walkable, we did. Very good beer and ribs and passable bbq sauce. Extensive beer and cider list. Typical bar pub food.

Headed out with the teenage kids for a relaxing time. Sat in the bar area on stools, grabbed some drinks and ordered large plates of bar snacks. Good value, friendly and a great 'community' atmosphere. We had a great time.

In Christchurch, there are plenty of great places for lunch - many around that magical $20 mark, and you'll seldom be disappointed. Bealey Speights Ale House missed the mark - completely. Caeser salad with dry chicken and a hard boiled egg on top, and pan...More

This was right next to where I was staying, so a logical place for me to enjoy a wine and a feed. Great seafood chowder! The wine is a little overpriced, though.
