Speight’s has been a regular presence on Stanley Street in Queenstown since 1880. True, the handsome building was originally the Council Chamber, but the cozy interiors and original features such as the vaults where the public records were stored, now an intimate dining room, make it feel as if you’re stepping back in time.

The Speight’s brewery has been producing award-winning ales and beers, using only the finest quality Southern ingredients since 1876 and there are 10 options to choose from. Traditionalists should opt for the Speight’s Gold Medal Ale, while those looking for something a little different should try the Porter, a red-black pour with distinctive coffee notes.

The menu has been designed to offer hearty, value for money servings of Kiwi style Pub food. All locally sourced to give you a true south island experience, all meals expertly matched to one of their superb tap ales! Well known amongst locals for providing the very best in locally sourced Lamb, Venison, Beef and famous Blue Cod.

See you in the beer garden or by the fire inside for some of New Zealand's finest southern hospitality and a true Kiwi dining experience. With a range of gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan options The Speight's Ale House Queenstown has you covered.
