The Earl Spencer has long been a favourite for Wimbledon locals. As much for its exceptional grub as for its airy atmosphere and extensive drinks options. Whilst we have our fingers crossed, in Britain the prospect of slightly underwhelming summer weather is always on the cards. Should the weather this year fail to get us all wanting to sit outside and bask in the baking sun, then the light, cool trappings of The Earl Spencer provide the next best thing.
A favourite of tennis fans, The Earl Spencer is a great way to soak in the fervent atmosphere of the championships this summer in Wimbledon.

The Alexandra really does provide something for everyone, especially come summertime. Comprised of four (yes, four!) separate bars, all with their own distinct feel, everyone can find somewhere to feel comfortable. For sports fans, the Sports Bar is obviously the natural choice.
