What could be better that Sunday Brunch at Spencers, a table outside if its not too hot or a table in the restaurant where service is excellent and the food excellent.

the owners of la Maison recommended this place and without there knowledge we would never have found it. Went for lunch and the food was excellent, service outstanding only sorry we waited until near the end of our holiday to try it. Will definitely sneak at least one more trip in before we leave this wonderful place

Lunch with 6 business associates; food was very good, as always, and the service, impeccable. Have eaten here many times, often lunch and sometimes dinner. Always a positive experience!

I couldn't believe how reasonably priced and delicious this place was. And how incredibly gluten free friendly they are. I had lunch there, and ordered scallops for an appetizer and eggs Benedict, my first time since going gluten free 5 years ago because I could actually get hollandaise without flour, as a main. I highly recommend it! It is a... More

Monday lunchtime, busy with what felt like residents not tourists. Soup and half sandwich option perfect. Nice mature terrace.

Lunch at Spencer's is always a treat. Wonderful food, great service, never a disappointment. Dining outside is the best as well. I always enjoy having lunch here. (Have never been for dinner, but I'm sure it's just as fine.)
