Location and contact

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.

I was so looking forward to dinner here after Id heard it was really good, I was so disappointed. The ribs were so bland and no flavour, chicken was undercooked and tasteless.

so did you complain on the night or just prefer to complain after the fact when nothing can be done about it ? or have you been mistaken with a different venue ?

This place has a great ambiance. It reminded us of the old English and Irish pub scene. There is a need to book to ensure a place to eat. The prices are reasonable and serving sizes are large. The menu is however limited in variety.
