We took our grandson there for a small birthday celebration. We sat outside on the deck it was a very pleasant evening. The waiter was good and the menu had a great selection to choose from.

I've forgotten the name of the dark beer I was drinking here but it was superb. It helped wash down the bangers and mash pub food staple I chose. The staff are friendly and help you choose your beer. Recommended.

Worst meal AND service, making it an embarrassment to the Speights name. Waited 70 minutes for our meal (burgers and fish and chips) with no heads up on the wait. They attempted to give us the dessert menu 40 minutes in. Then one of the burgers had a hair entwined in the meat pattie.

The food arrived in good time and was fabulous. They gave us just the right amount of time between courses to allow us to enjoy... More
