We had dinner here as a group of 8 and although there were no particular complaints we all felt that the Earl and Spencer could be much more inviting and impressive with minimal changes. We were all a little surprised that for the type of venue and meal prices that there was no table service. Among our group there seemed... More

We did discover there are now new people running this pub. Not quite the buzz I recall.Still Ok with good service however the food was very ordinary. Garlic prawns are worth a try and chicken wings were plentiful but rather dry. Not sure if a sauce should have been with the meal but none was provided. For what it is,... More

Great fish and chips (local shark). Only downside was being charged $5 for a soda water with a bit of lime juice in it. Most hotels don't charge for soda water.

We used to love eating out in this pub during the early nineties. Not sure what happened but a very small crowd there on a Saturday night. I consider $11 for a pint of cider to be way over the top and hence did not take further but went elsewhere. The steak burger was fine for what it was but... More

Hi there Thank you for your review. I am sorry to hear the you feel we are overpriced, we feel that our prices are competitive with other venues in town. You must have been in early in the night if it was the 26th as we produced 96 meals that night. The chips on the steak sandwich are not out... More

We had a couple of beers out the back in a lovely beer garden. It has a really lovely feel however our meals were not very nice. My partner had a Caesar salad and the bacon was grey and didn't seem quite right. Nice for a drink with a good selection of beers

Hello Drew I'm sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your meals. The bacon may seem a bit different because we cure and smoke our own. We use the pork belly, so it is more like an American style of bacon. Hopefully we will see you guys back at the Earl of another meal. Kind regards Jason Jozwiak Licensee More

Have not been here before my last visit to Albany, but went twice in the same trip, both times with clients. Great pub with a fab atmosphere, big range of drinks and what looked like some decent meals on offer. Easy parking, friendly staff and a good place to have an enjoyable catch up

I was visiting Albany for 2 days with work. The Earl of Spencer for lunch. Easy parking and good location. Enjoyed a Chicken Curry on Toasted basmatti rice. Service was very friendly and quick. I would recommend this restaurant when visiting Albany.

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.
