About The Earl

The Earl of Sussex opened its doors in 1978 in this very location.  After two short years, The Earl closed for a complete renovation of our building by the National Capital Commission.  Since that time, The Earl has been in continuous operation at the corner of Sussex & Murray.  It is the second oldest pub in the ByWard Market behind the Chateau Lafayette.  For more than 35 years now, The Earl has been the place to unwind with friends after a long days work.  We hope you will enjoy it just as much as they do.
