Andrew Archer, 2nd Baron Archer (29 July 1736 – 18 April 1778), styled The Honourable Andrew Archer between 1747 and 1768, was a British peer and Whig politician.

Archer was the son of Thomas Archer, 1st Baron Archer, by Catherine, daughter of Sir Thomas Tipping, 1st Baronet.[1] In 1761 he was returned to parliament for both Bramber[1][2] and Coventry, but chose to sit for Coventry. He continued to represent this constituency until 1768, when he succeeded his father in the barony and entered the House of Lords.[1][3]

Lord Archer married Sarah, daughter of James West, in 1761. They had several children, including the Honourable Sarah Archer, who was the wife of firstly Other Windsor, 5th Earl of Plymouth (her first cousin) and secondly William Amherst, 1st Earl Amherst. Archer died at Portman Square, Marylebone, London, in April 1778, aged 41, and was buried in Tanworth. He had no surviving sons and the barony died with him.[4] Lady Archer died at Charles Street, Grosvenor Square, London, in February 1801, aged 59.[1]
