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.

Good food and historic atmosphere

We like the setting, being originally a shop and house attached. Converted into a restaurant, it has preserved historic features and photographs. We like the friendly service and the range of food available for lunch and evening meals. Inside and outside dining available. Parking available.

Recently visited the highly recommend historic bar, our group was let down by poor service and bad atmosphere. The menu was deceiving as many of our choices of meals and drink were unavailable. Bar service was poor as our orders were wrong several times and when asking for condiments we were slapped with a charge. The meals were average with... More

Lovely ambience, excellent food. Bit out of the way, but worth a visit. The 'in residence' Poet was the surprise, interesting & quirky!

While staying in Albany we went here for a dinner meal & found it to be excellent. The steak was cooked to perfection & my husband had the pork which was most enjoyable. Would recommend to locals & holiday makers for a wonderful meal, good service & cheery staff.

Always great food, extensive well thought out selection of all types of wine and ourbeer/cider, intimate dining area and timely service. The Trio of Pork is a menu favourite. Enjoyable old English pub with an Australian flavour. Off the main beat but worth finding to fill up!

Our 3 meals were plentiful and ok but nothing to rave about. The staff were friendly enough. The food has been better on our previous visits.

This place is open till late, and like a lot of Albany, has a colonial historic feel which adds to the character of the place. I rather fancied the Earl’s Taster Plate which offered variety and an intro to the local produce. It's a very generous offering of all kinds of goodies which left me stuffed. I liked all elements...

Good décor in the bar and restaurant areas. Outside can be pleasant given a little fine weather. Good selection of beers, excellent food with big servings. Book a table in advance on a weekend as it is very popular during the tourist season.
