Although quite a few tables were empty we still had to wait 20 minutes just to have the table prepared. It then took time to get attention to place our order and then they brought the wrong meal for my wife. However, both the food and beer were tasty.

Couldn't find much open in downtown Greymouth for dinner until we turned the corner and saw the Ale House. Awesome architecture inside. Great menu and great dessert.

This restaurant serves great food including steaks. The service was good and the ambience of the setting was very warm. There was also good ale to accompany the great food.

We ate lunch here. Menu would be similar to ' wetherspoons' in UK, a variety of snacks and meals - l chose soup which was whole and hearty and nice and hot . Friends shared a platter of chicken wings - good value Service was good and everything was put on a tab to pay when finished.

We are an older couple who like good food but want to have control over how much we eat. We were referred to several restaurants in Greymouth and after trying one other where we were met with disinterest we entered Speight's where we were greeted by cheerful and helpful staff and made to feel very welcome.

Had two evening meals here over a long weekend watching street racing. Each meal was well presented and tasted fantastic, lamb shanks are splendid. The staff are really friendly and the service is excellent.

Stopped in for lunch at the end of the Wilderness Trail. Had the seafood chowder which was delicious. I loved the decor and would have loved to stay to enjoy a beer but maybe next time.
