Outstanding service and care. The mature gentlemen obviously takes pride in his work and has been trained extremely well. The food - and we had small portions for lunch - was delicious and sophisticate with layers of flavours. Remember the starving who have no menu......More

Arrive. Waitress rolls her eyes. Doesn’t smile. Really up herself. Food was over priced and average. Would not recommend to anyone. Wish I could give a zero but can’t.

I’ve given this place a few chances and will never be back again. Been here for breakfast, drinks and lunch. Had pork and it was all fatty, no meat and no crackly. Also undercooked and had blood! Got a refund and gave this another chance...More

We came here for a late lunch. Staff seemed more interested in going home than serving customers. The young lady serving us had a “can’t do” attitude, when ages before closing time we ordered another wine. Prices are about double of surrounding cafes. On a...More

Spendlove enjoys solid patronage and seems to be a goto place for the yummy mummies set. Personally I don't think the food is great but there are a few dishes I quite like.

Not my first time here for lunch and it didn’t disappoint. Love they pasta dishes and salads. It’s not the most well appointed restaurant, but with such great food we will be back. I have given it a score of 4 for the food alone....More
