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.

Great log fires in winter, very cozy and a lovely sheltered courtyard area in summer. Wonderful harbour views, live entertainment at the weekend. Keep up the good work jason... More

The Earl is a must see in my view if you go to Albany. A good range of beers and other drinks a great outlook over the harbour. Generally a place where you can pull up a bit of bar space and just have a chat with others at the bar. Generally a warming fire available if its cold to... More

So went here with some family and friends and it was ok. I got the sizzling prawns and onion rings which were very good but the other dishes didn't fair as well. The worst was the veg fettuccini that was not to our taste. It was overly sauced and cheesed so unfortunately our friend had to find something else to... More

Very pleasant evening. Open fires. Live music that was not too intrusive. Food was good, while still pub grub, with big portions. Great choice of beers. Nice staff. Friendly customers, in good atmosphere. We took a baby with us without difficulty and were well looked after. Would definitely go again.

Every time I go to Albany I make sure I return to the Earl of Spencer, the atmosphere and food are great. Not to mention the open fires on a cold night.

Great food, great beer and a really cosy, warm pub. The meals are large so we would recommend sharing. We had 10 people on a Friday lunch and they bent over backwards to get us a table. Well worth a visit.
