Typical Speights Ale House, good food, good service and nice place to eat dinner with friends. Restaurant was fully booked, but we ate in the bar area, they have a nice area off to one side which was nice and private from the main bar area, Food was very tasty and large

I went to Speights Ale House recently while on vacation in area with my wife. We were able to walk from our hotel in city centre. The restaurant has large selection of entrees, mains, pizzas and sides. I had the blue cod fish and chips and it was excellent. My wife had pizza and she really enjoyed it. Great beer... More

The restaurant was fully booked, but we were pleased to sit in the lounge bar and had the option of ordering from the bar or restaurant menus. My steak was great, but the two friends ordered Blue Cod and chips were disappointed. Overall, not as good as a previous visit last year, but we'd certainly return

We visited Speight Ale house for dinner. We had pork ribs as starter and both of us has one of their steaks. Food was absolutely delicious. Service wasn't bad. We would appreciate side plates for ribs because we order it like starter to share. We didn't have steak knife for whole time because they ran out but it's not such... More

I have wanted to ray for a while . Last time I went the wait for a table was 40 minutes , so I didn't stay. This time I got a table on about 6 mins. Made my order , but I waited and waited . 50 mins late my meal arrived. It was nice but way to long.

Bar Food and Restaurant food was very good and very tasty. Don't cater to children with childs meals but we were able to cater for them with the bar sliders which made them happy. The sliders are yummy. Some of the staff were new and needed a bit of prompting but very friendly and willing. We had 2 night meals... More

This restaurant was recommended by the folks who ran our hotel. They suggested that we call for reservations, which we did. It was a good thing. They were turning away a couple who were walk-ins. We thought there would just be bar-food, but really there was much more. They have quite an extensive menu...starters, platters to share, sandwiches, burgers, salads... More

I ended up here at the recommendation of my hotel and I'm glad they recommended it. It has a fantastic interior with references to the beer company's history and offers a great range of beers on tap and of course local Sauvignon Blanc. I ate here a few times and would highly recommend the breakfast sandwich!!

We called in here on the spur of the moment having just arrived in Blenheim. The restaurant part of the building was fully booked. So we ordered our meals in the order at the bar part of the building and had our food delivered to our tablet here. There was. Good choice in the menu, and reasonable sized portions, my... More
