My husband and I have been for dinner with friends on two separate occasions in the past month and both times we have complimented the chef and or the service staff. The Earl of Spencer is a lovely old Albany building which provides a nice atmosphere. The food is well presented and very generous portions and all tastes good. Drinks... More

A warm welcome, a great selection of local wines and beers and the food was so good we went back for more! Great value for money, but if visiting on a Sunday, book in advance as it is very popular.

Our past visits to Albany have always included this restaurant, and we were looking forward to our latest visit. The table service was fine but the food was substandard. My pie had burnt black pastry and the filling dried out. My wife's chicken dish was very overcooked and we left half of it. A pity.

A restaurant and hotel hybrid near the heart of Albany. Staff are efficient and friendly, the menu is varied and the service is quick. Above all the food was very good - Stewed beef for me, and FOtD for her. Portions are huge and the prices, while not cheap, are commensurate with the quality and quantity.

Great atmosphere and the coldest beer in Albany. A short walk from the centre of town or plenty of on street parking.

All it consisted of was fried crab shells placed on top of a very ordinary salad. My wife's caesar salad was dismal compared to the last one she... More

We visited in October (the week before the incredibly busy ANZAC centenary weekend). Hard to find as was not well lit, and various information said it was on the corner of Earl St and Spencer St - Earl of Spencer - get it? :-) As we were standing opposite in the dark, trying to work out if the old building...
