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, live music every saturday from 7pm & Sunday from 5pm and an all day snack menu. Lunch where nothing is over $20 for lighter lunches with an option for something a little more. We have 16 tap beers to choose from. 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.

Fantastic atmosphere and talented entertainment

Had dinner and drinks here on a Sunday evening. Nice to see something open on a Sunday. Everything was reasonably priced and the food very tasty. There was a single musician playing guitar not long after we started our meal. We were wary thinking it would overtake our meal. He was extremely... read more

We had dinner here on the 19/12/2015. As we are in Perth, it has been years since we ate here. As before, the food was good but not great but having said that, I really do think they make the best chips in WA. The ambience was excellent - just what one can expect from a established institution like this.... More

Albany's first boutigue pub, a must stop on every visit. In winter it is great with the cosy fires and welcoming atmosphere. Food is pub style as you would expect with substantial servings.

Large meals, good food, great price on a wet cool summer evening. Perfect for Pub Grub. Visited with family. Enjoyed the local wine (Yilgarnia Cabernet Merlot). Great small pub, worth a visit.

I have to eat gluten and dairy free food, and was amazed at the welcome and care the waiters and chefs at the Earl of Spencer gave me. Nothing was too much trouble, a GF menu was produced the chef came to the table to discuss the menu. I had a vast plate of delicious lamb shanks with baked spud... More

We had a delicious meal with very generous portions. My roasted pork belly was cooked to perfection and the pumpkin and other... More

Came for the beef and guiness pie and pint as we normally do when down here. Traditional pub meal staff friendly good outdoor seating. Must say pie was a little on the cooler side this time. Nevertheless the boys were hungry so enjoyed it.

This was a very quaint and lovely pub, with a lovely atmosphere and very friendly staff. We had a selection of small eats for lunch, which very very nice. The chicken wings a little spicy, but that comes down to choice.We enjoyed sitting out in the beer garden.
