“Won't go back...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2014

The sauce on my ribs was disgusting, very sour and far to much of it, the mud cake was hard leading me to believe it was old. When I mentioned these comments while paying the girl didn't seem at all concerned. Wouldn't recommend it that's for sure...very disappointing.

“Great value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2014

We dined at this Alehouse and the one in Queenstown and found them equally as welcoming and good value. Staff are motivated and friendly - nothing seems too much for them. Food is fantastic value - great sized portions and very tasty. The beer goes without saying - spot on. Seemed less than 10 mins after ordering in both places we had our 4 meals. Absolutely no complaints and will certainly recommend these Speights Alehouses to any friends or family visiting the areas

“Nice Food not too Hard on your Pocket”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2014

We ate here twice whilst in Dunedin & the service was quick & the food was piping hot delivered to our table. Average price for 3 of us for tea with no alcoholic drinks was around the $60 to $70-00 mark. We ate early between 6.00pm & before 8.00pm as reviewing the restaurant on Trip Advisor, if you eat on a Fri/Sat night the wait for your dinner can be longer.

“Best restaurant in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2014

The food is amazing and the price is one of the lowest we have found. You will get a choice of real NZ food and the atmosphere is very relaxing.
