Squaremeal Review of The Earl Spencer ?

One of the first big successes of the gastropub movement, The Earl Spencer displays its big wood-lined bar, its ceiling fans and its chalked-up boards with pride. The kitchen still hasn’t taken its eye off the ball, producing a vibrant menu that changes every day and is full of seasonal interest. In summer you might find asparagus and poached eggs or strawberry Pavlova; in winter, daube of beef and sticky toffee pudding. There’s a thought-out wine list for accompaniment, but also plenty of interest for ale drinkers and those on the wagon, all fairly priced. A separate entrance leads to a function room for up to 100 people; given the non-corporate, individual nature of the pub, it’s hardly surprising that praise has been unanimous for events held here.

    TheFoodaholic :: TheFoodaholic: REVIEW: The Earl Spencer, Merton Road, Southfields

    Having access to a car for me these days is proving to be a dream, especially considering I'm not the designated driver. The idea of becoming a responsible driver who has to drive other people around, thus preventing me from drinking - I can't see a single benefit. Closer to home and craving a hearty lunch we found ourselves at The Earl Spencer. A charming Edwardian pub which was recently awarded a Bib Gourmand by Michelin. Parking (again not me) here at The Earl Spencer is a bit of a problem, but it certainly beats a £1 Megabus journey which takes around 8 hours to get just about anywhere.
