Speights Ale House was handy for our lodging so we had dinner here one of the nights we were in Christchurch. The portions were good and there was a nice variety. We also enjoyed the Speights Ale on tap. The restaurant had a nice children's menu as well. Service was friendly and efficient.

Went here because it was close to motel. restaurant is through the bar area if you come in main doors. Staff are efficient got a table fir one and did not have wait for the meal. Pricing at upper end for pub meals but quality also far higher than all pubs.

This was the nearest eatery to my motel. The food was good but expensive for what it was. I wouldn't bother going back when there are many more affordable options offering just as good or better food.

Speights Ale Houses are generally reliable places for good hearty food - a good variety and well-presented. If you have food requirements it might pay to check with staff - we ordered a 'lemon-infused roast chicken breast' but it came coated with a lethally hot spicy covering! We scraped it off and the meal was delicious otherwise.

Good pub food, standard selections but servings were large, average prices. Good selection of their own beers! Staff were friendly though.
Mostly male crowd all watching sport on large screens. There was only four female customers in the whole bar.
