Speights Ale House in Hamilton is perfectly situated between two of Hamiltons great focal points; the Waikato River and Waikato Stadium.

It’s the ideal place to meet before or after a stadium event, be it rugby or a concert. The bar may be modern but you’ll enjoy the rustic décor with schist rock, exposed wooden beams and copper piping creating a true southern ambience.

The menu has hearty southern fare and has its own quirky personality – we reckon it’s the only menu featuring ‘Moa’ or ‘Arran’s Sore Ribs’. All of which tastes even better when accompanied by and award winning Speights ale off the tap.
