Great atmosphere. Good beer and a lovely meal. Had nice soft live music not too loud. Meals value for money.

The food was good but the staff are not attentive. They got m meal mixed up and did not want to change it although I have not touched it. Brought me another one which I thought was ridiculous.

Speights Ale House in Hamilton is perfectly situated between two of Hamiltons great focal points; the Waikato River and Waikato Stadium. It's the ideal place to meet before or after a stadium event, be it rugby or a concert. The bar may be modern but you'll enjoy the rustic decor with schist rock, exposed wooden beams and copper piping creating a true southern ambience. The menu has hearty southern fare and has its own quirky personality - we reckon it's the only menu featuring 'Moa' or 'Arran's Sore Ribs'. All of which tastes even better when accompanied by and award winning Speights ale off the tap.
