Recently went to the Speights Alehouse to celebrate my Uncle 91 Birthday. Everyone enjoyed themselves and my food (spare ribs) were yummy. Everyone in the group ( 12 people) also enjoyed their meals. I liked the old brewery theme, quirky, but a really neat atmosphere....More

Very disappointing,small piece of rump with half a lettuce on your plate and no mussels or prawns in seafood chowder. Last time we waste our money there.

We stopped in for lunch the building is pretty cool and it was good value for a good meal.The service was friendly and the food came out quickly. If we had longer we would have done the tour also maybe next time.
