The Speight’s Ale House Greymouth is located in a category 1 historic building, opposite the railway station in the heart of Greymouth. The building, known as ‘The Brick House’, was built in 1909 by the Government to house numerous Government Departments. In the 1990s as Government departments contracted in size, the building became vacant and fell into disrepair. It was earmarked for demolition until a local businessman saw its potential and in 2006 strengthened and renovated the building to enhance its lovely character. The land and spot was then bought by two ‘Southern Men’ who commissioned a further high quality fit-out to accommodate the Greymouth Speights Ale House with the Public Health Organisation leasing the upstairs space. Speights Ale House Greymouth is owned by John Matchett and Emma Burtt. The couple took over operations in November 2017, and soon after completed major refurbishments and introduced a new menu. John and Emma thrive off the steady stream of locals and visitors to the ale house, aiming to create a vibrant, friendly, and hospitable atmosphere for every arrival. The opportunity to Introduce fresh new options to the menu to compliment hearty favourites has been a highlight for the pair.
