This restaurant has a fantastic position. It has recently changed hands. In our opinion you up would be wise to wait until chef ,I and service improves. Disappointing

This is very popular so you will always need to book ahead. Food very good indeed. We are here twice . The whitebait was superb as was the lobster, hake and pizzas. Also an interesting cocktail menu.

So didn't actually get to experience Spero's. I wish they had made this clearer on their web site so I'm adding this review. I also noticed the restaurant was advertised for sale in the estate agents window which was rather ominous. Maybe next time!
