Dropped in for a beer on the way home and stayed to watch the rugby and have dinner. The salmon was delicious and the pork belly superb. Speights Alehouse Petone - you never fail to impress and I look forward to my next visit.

We went there with my son, whose birthday it was and his wife and son. My son ordered the pork ribs and he loved them. He also had an entree and dessert which he also loved. In fact we all loved the food..
