Good restaurant and nice view. In front of lake. Food was ok.. pretty much similar with other western restaurant. But there was no disappointing.

Excellent to read your comments. Our staff are a great bunch who enjoy what they do. Our outdoor deck area is certainly the place to sit at this time of year with all the autumn colours on show.

Warm weather, outdoor was the way to go, & menu appealed to all voters .... sold.
Service efficient, meals probably better than the usual tavern type quality, & it was most enjoyable sitting in the sun. Gotta love the easy option when it pays off.

Thanks for your comments. Sitting in the sun in our deck area is perfect for this time of year. Still, sunny and plenty to watch!

Not much to write about. Very basic food, portions especially salads on the smaller side. Quality average but prices right up there. You will definitely find better places to eat a decent meal in Wanaka

My husband and I were in Wanaka for a wedding and the night before we had dinner at Speights Ale House. Service was excellent, food was great. We had starters of seafood platter, I had a salad for dinner and splashed out on the lemon tart for dessert. The crust was a little hard but the lemon filling was to die for! We got to sit in the corner which was lovely and private.
