Ate at Speight's and it was great. Although it was busy the service was very good as was the food and beers. Portions are quite generous and quality of a high standard for the reasonable price. Thoroughly recommended.

Good meals from speights also decent serving sizes! the staff often seem disinterested but that's just me being one for customer service. A uniform for the staff might be an idea instead of bike shorts it's a bit awkward.

Great choices on the menu should cover most peoples tastes. The service is good waiters are happy to answer any questions on the food served which is great if you have allergies. We really enjoyed our meal and would defiantly go again.

The meal was great. Menu excellent and food well presented and at a reasonable prices. The surroundings are interesting with views of the brewing gear. The only slightly negative is that I found it a bit noisy but that may be due to me being somewhat hard of hearing.....makes me concentrate on the meal though!

Good size portions. Big selection on the menu. Good family venue. We had lamb shanks which were really tender and tasty. Pork ribs really yummy too. A good hearty meal
