The Wanaka Speight's Ale House
The Wanaka Speight’s Ale House is situated at 93 Ardmore Street, right by Lake Wanaka in the town centre. Since opening at this site in December 2012, the owners and operators Roger and Archie Gordon, together with their staff, extend a warm welcome to locals and travelers alike. Come in and enjoy some of the famous Southern Hospitality!
Beer and food is our specialty...
We are proud of our large selections of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. Whatever you feel like, we will have something for you. The taps obviously carry the entire Speight's Range, including the well-known favourites, but also some crafty seasonal additions. Check with the bar what is new when you are in next!
Being located in one of the best wine regions of New Zealand (if we dare say so ourselves), we have a large selection of local Central Otago and New Zealand wines by the glass. Also a variety of soft drinks, juices and barista-made coffees is always available.
Our passionate chefs take pride in creating a menu which reflects the seasons and what is locally available. We cater for the "classic southern taste", but also don't forget about vegetarians, vegans or food intolerances. Whatever you fancy, we can surely find something for you on our large menu.
Food is available all day, starting with lunch from 11am until 5pm, when we go straight into our evening service with a full dinner menu. The snack menu is available until closing time.
