“Good Value food in a bistro location, Impressed”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

The restaurant is well positioned and has a good atmosphere offering good qualty food at very reasonable prices. Again not ground breaking but good food cooked very well and offering a good experince.

I very much enjoyed the whole evening and was not rushed at all as we finished our meal and proceded to enjoy a few drinks afterwards,the whole group enjoyed the evening.

I will definately return at some point.

“Birthday celebration”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

Meal was impeccable,service amazing but a little more food for the price would have been appreciated, we were lucky to have had a special offer for 2/3 courses which softened the blow. It is an exclusive restaurant. not your normal pub meals so sizes vary between them and Earle, I had not eaten since lunch and was very hungry a fuller plate would have been nice. I would go again but it wuould have to be a special occassion and an offer price. If you like big filling meals this is not the place for you, delicate small meals then this is fab!!.

“Bean bugs and cauliflowers”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

I have reviewed Earle before. I like it. Their special price offer is good. However...
1). Prices have risen. £16.95 for two courses. Still not that bad IF The food is high quality and good quantity.
2) tremendous smoked haddock hash cake as a starter.
3) Roast beef meal is superb in taste;really excellent but four beans, one floret of cauliflwe r cheese, two tiny roasts and a smudge of carrot purée?
We felt like we were being given the ends of what was already cooked. We raised this with the waitress who offered us more veg. Unfortunately, this offer came when our plates were almost empty. No one more senior came to see us, no gesture was made with the bill. Instead lots of young serving staff flirted at the bar and had a fine old time.
The difference between good and very good is very small.tonight Earle came down on the side of apathetic, lazy and complacent.
Thoroughly disappointing, totally avoidable and if the management take things like this seriously they will act. A price rise of over 10 per cent should not lead to a reduction of mo than that.
Oddly , Earle is normally busy on a Sunday when we go. Tonight it was very quiet. Coincidence or word spreading?

“Great party, good food, friendly service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

Went in March for a private party. Service was very friendly and attentive. Catered particularly well fr short notice vegetarians. Kitchen coed well as whole restaurant seated together and ordered from 5 different mains. Vegetarian black pudding raised eyebrows but was enjoyed by meat eaters and veggies alike. Good bread, white bait and canapés. Chump chilli burger was perfectly cooed and very tasty. Dessert was a 'trio' - slightly unnecessary and fussy.
No complaints about portion sizes!
