EAT

Owner Tom and Chef Sam are all about creating inviting spaces that become backdrops to their diners’ lives and this pared-back bistro/wine bar’s approach is no exception.

Earl serves as a canvas for produce-driven dishes to offbeat diners geared towards great wine and conversation, synonymous with the flavour, energy and relaxed vibe inspired by the coastal European culture.

Our food philosophy is to take simple and traditional dishes and execute them using exceptional ingredients, whilst having some fun. This presents a skilful yet still unpretentious blend of cuisines and ideas.
