Taken to a table straight away. Given water and order was taken. After 30minutes wait I asked for more water and when our starter bread was coming. After an additional 15minute wait we left.

Table that ordered after us got their bread faster than us. Felt like we were ignored... would comment on the food but were too hungry to wait around.

Monday 19th November & we had snow in Queenstown so into Speights Ale House for a lunch by the fire. Pat had Pie of the Day, Polly - Pulled Pork Bun, John - Seafood Chowder with a side od mushrooms & Onion rings, Warren had James Speight’s Sausage & Mash. A good meal which satisfied our stomachs on this cooler day.

Lively place to watch televised sports. Good range of Speight's beers, plus good pub food. Watched the All Blacks demolish the Wallabies!

Been here several times on visits service always good food choice and portion sizes good.
If no room in restaurant offered to sit and eat in bar or wait for table.Given time of wait for food when first entering to confirm if you wish to stay which is really handy.
Would happily recommend.
