“Great beer needs no introduction”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Good "tucker" and great beer. Speights must be NZ's favourite beer. Originally from Dunedin, this popuar franchise has srung up all over NZ. Light meals through to full dinners, plenty to tempt here. Enough said.

“Good place to go for a family”
Reviewed September 15, 2012

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.

“Busy place but efficient.”
Reviewed September 12, 2012 via mobile

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.

“OK but expensive”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

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.
