We met some new friends here on a Friday evening. It has a great atmosphere and some good food to nibble. Its location on the main street across from the lake makes it a popular spot.

Have been to the Speights Ale House in Petone, so knew the style of food. We were already a little hungry so having to wait 15 minutes for a table was a little annoying. However we were served fairly quickly and ordered some chips straight away, which came very quickly. Lucky, because the rest of out order took ages, enough time for me to have two pints of Ale, and almost fall off my chair. lucky I had the chips otherwise I might have.

Meals were Ok, nothing spectacular for the prices charged.

Thank you for your feedback on your recent dining experience at the Wanaka Speights Ale House. We endeavor to seat customers as quickly and efficiently as possible. If we are busy we do not see that 15 minutes is long to wait. We always endeavor to get the meals out as fast as we can. If we are busy - and it seems like we were, there can be a small delay - as you can understand.
