We went to Speights Ale house in Greymouth last night. Apart from being served very very late in the evening despite providing our preferences earlier in the day, the steak I had was terrible, fatty and tough.

The food choices are varied and all delicious. Service was warm and friendly and it was a great place to have lunch after getting off the train before traveling farther.
