Nice meals at reasonable prices. Stopped here 2 years ago on the Christchurch/Greymouth/Christchurch Transalpine Express and again in July 2018 for a meal. Lots of photos on walls of Greymouth in years gone by. Nice place to have a meal.

We enjoyed our visit to the Speights Ale House though the wait for food was particularly long with the restaurant not that busy and children waiting an excessive amount of time. Great wine selection and of course the beers were plentiful.
