Nice place to get a quick bite/beer before boarding the train. Although prices are a bit expensive, portions are large and good for sharing.

While living in the Dunedin area the local Speights Ale House was our favourite restaurant for many years. Now you can find their restaurants in many other locations, this time we dined at the Ale House in Greymouth. As usual could not fault the food or service.

Staff were friendly, they have a nice selection of drinks. Has the ribeye steak, it was nothing special. It was cooked medium as I requested, but it was burnt on the outside and a bit too much of that charcoal taste. But apart from that it was ok.

Speight's Ale House prooves that hands on management leads to perfection. We had a miserable day in Greymouth due to bad weather conditions. I must say that the town looks very gray in a day like this. I rarely drink, if it wasn't for the look of it, I wouldn't choose this place for lunch. But amongst every old looking building of Greymouth, this place shines. It has a good vibe, so entered. What do you expect from pub food? We'll, not this. To be on the safe side I ordered the wedges. What came was perfection. Spiced, crispy on the outside, soft inside potatoes mixed with melted cheese and salty bacon. Second food we got was grilled fish -which was on the black board. I don't have the words to explain my joy. That was a real fresh fish, cooked by someone who really knew what they were doing. Light, you get that distinct fish flavour and spiced kumara underlines it. Also, the manager is pretty good. The moment we entered he informed us about the black board. (We might not have seen it.) Since he was around all the time, all the waiting stuff were working very hard to keep everything clean, everybody was fast, their mind were on their job. You see that it takes a lot to keep this place as it is. Kudos.
