A popular bar at the weekend and would recommend making a recommendation if you are a group wanting to eat here. They have a good selection of “pub grub” to select from. I had the fish and chips and it was very good. The only slightly disappointing part was after taking my order and serving my meal (which was very efficient) nobody came to see if I wanted a dessert when I finished my meal.

I would recommend booking a table so you don't miss out on a lovely evening, the staff were friendly, and the food was great

What a lovely meal we had and the staff are very knowledgeable about dietary requirements. The fact that they have a separate Gluten Free menu speaks volumes. The nicest Sticky Date Pudding I have had and lots of sauce. If we come back to Invercargill again we would definitely eat there again.

Up to standard for a Speights, no surprise there.
Food was really good, a lamb shank and a chicken burger tasty, hot and well cooked.
As one would expect there was a good choice of beers, and the service was excellent from all members of the team.

Last month, was my first time to Speights Ale House, I must say that the service is the best in Invercargill. Staff are friendly, welcoming and the food is generously sized and food reasonably priced. I loved my first experience so much that I have returned twice this month. Wish I had known earlier. All three visits, the service was excellent. Great people, great atmosphere
