Here at the earl of spencer, we see ourselves as a family friendly venue. We have a large beer garden that is non smoking, kids play area which will be updated this summer, live music every friday from 8pm & Sunday from 5pm and an all day menu that will be starting the second week in December. We have great selection of bottled cider and imported English, Scottish and French beer. We only sell Local Wines, which are all from the Great Southern Region. All of our meals area cooked to order, so our moto is, great food takes time.

Walked in and felt like I had come home!! Some delightful beers available.However that's where the fun ended. Ordered the Wikked Chicken, the only thing wikked about it was the price... Under-cooked & semi-frozen prawns & overcooked chicken & rice, which was so stodgy I couldn't stomach more than 2 mouthfuls! I ate the Chicken though as I'd rather have... More

We ate here on a busy Friday night and I've got to say I was impressed with the efficiency of the kitchen. They were super busy, and kept pumping out quality meals without a care in the world. Our wait time for ordering to eating was not unreasonable, and the food was great, although the chips weren't as hot as... More

Having been many times before and enjoyed the ambiance and quality food, this visit was a little disappointing. our mwals looked good but the shark and stake was overcooked. With only 6 other people in for lunch there are no excuses of a busy workload.

We had a lovely lunch today. The nachos , tempura prawns and chips were great. The food and drink service was fantastic. All staff were extremely helpful and friendly. We sat inside for a while in the historic inn part. The furniture and ambience was lovely. We then sat outside in the courtyard for lunch. We met some lovely people... More
