We experienced exceptional service from the Duty Manager Riley and is off sider Caitlin. We were interviewing a potential staff member and they were discrete with their service but provided drinks and food when needed. Food was to die for, thanks Speights Ale House will definitely be back.

I've been to the Speight's Ale House a few times and every visit was such a good experience! Great variety of food, and as the main meals are quite a large size, you can also order delicious light meals from the nibbles menu if you can't handle a big dish (which I can't!). Lovely atmosphere and the customer service is of high quality.

While I feel a little harsh berating this place for the lack of vegetarian food (I know, what did I expect?), I think they could easily do a lot better. Even the most enthusiastic of meat-eaters (who, incidentally, would probably love this restaurant) have vegetarian friends, partners, and family-members. They would be well-advised to take them elsewhere.
