The rating of this spot was already quite good and now we can confirm the same!!! Awesome food in a very nice location with good music, very friendly stuff! We enjoyed it very much and can absolutely recommend this restaurant. If you like to eat good and if you like good food - you should go to speights.

I like the Invercargill Speights the best due to it's large menu selection and service. I've been to other Speights chain locations, but they paled in comparison to the Invercargill one. Some of the meals are a bit pricey but the food is well worth it (especially the black cherry chicken). The tap beers are pretty good and the appetiser loaf is amazing. If you like to eat meat and are visiting Invercargill, I highly suggest visiting Speights Ale House.

Great menu, great brew, good prices. Dont't try the sampler of eight excellent lagers and ales unless you are within walking distance of the pub! My wife and I shared most of the seafood sampler and it was almost too much for two, but it was a fun experience and a great meal. Service was a little slow, but they were packed on a Wednesday night, and we certainly did not go hungry or want for drink. The wait staff and the other guests made for a lively, friendly atmsphere.

Great meals, decent size, good value, friendly wait staff. Most weekends also boast live music. Reliably good!

Visited here twice in two weeks, and was not disappointed on either occasion. The portions are generous, the staff friendly but polite, and the building - looks like an old warehouse - has been tastefully renovated. The first occasion was a Bledisloe Cup match and the place was packed, the second was an early quiet Friday evening, and both times we received good service and lovely food - try the salmon with the herbed crust. My husband loved the choice of beers. So much beer, so little time. We sat upstairs, which I recommend you do if you're eating. It's quieter and you have a better vantage point (obviously). If I ever find myself in Invercargill again, this will be my first port of call!
