Simon Says Earle Is Back.. Simple!

Its been a while since I ate here mainly as my last experience was of being offended by Mr Rimmer himself following a gourmet evening that left me with a bad taste. Anyway many months, possibly more later and I thought id give this place another try. Funnily enough it only happened by chance as we... read more

Last Wednesday I ate at Earls in a party of 12 for an evening with Simon Rimmer. The starter and intermediate courses were so small as to prevent any appreciation of the flavours.The main course looked more promising but was, in my case, cold and no better than lukewarm for most of my friends. Driven by hunger they ate theirs.....even... More

Came to a gourmet evening with 2 friends. Had the 4 course menu which is great value. Every course was delicious. Our waitress Hattie was very attentive. Would definitely recommend this restaurant.

We've been going to Earle since we've lived in the area and it's usually been good. This night we were supposed to go to stockyard round the corner but my husband outvoted me last minute! We soon regretted that. Starters were really lovely (halloumi and the squid) but the main courses were a real let down. I had sea bass... More

What a smashing restaurant, definitely my favourite in Hale. We went for a special meal for my 30th birthday and we were exceptionally well looked after throughout by our host, James. We tried the tasting menu and it was absolutely splendid, a truly memorable experience. The new chef is clearly doing a very good job with the place!

Came here expecting big things, a nice simple looking menu. Wrong menus provided to start with, starters took far too long to be served. We were not advised to order side veg so when our mains eventually came out they were very small and definitely needed additional veg. By the time this arrived, we had all but finished our small...

What's happened to Earle? The last time I reviewed it I said it was the best food in Hale. But that was 2013, when it used to be an expensive but lovely neighbourhood restaurant with great food, wonderful staff and superb service. I went regularly for 2 years and it never let me down. I've been away for a while... More

Took my mum for mothers day as a special treat and the food was amazing and the service was excellent would highly recommend this place if you were looking for really good quality food 10/10 bit on the pricey side but my mum is worth every penny

This is a really nice restaurant where we'd previously enjoyed our meal and complimented their service. However on this occasion, the service was lacking. Our starters arrived before the wine as they were busy clearing up tables and cleaning glasses. The general atmosphere was one of we want to close and go home and the clearing and cleaning going on... More
