“Excellent Lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2014

This was our second visit to the brasserie, this time we had lunch before checking in for an overnight stay. We sat in the light and airy conservatory, which was obviously a popular spot. Our lunches, which were a club sandwich and a deli sandwich with a glass of house white, was served in a reasonable time, was delicious, made with quality ingredients, and very filling. Highly recommended for a tasty lunch in pleasant surroundings.

“Always a quality experience.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2013

Excellent atmosphere and being right in the centre of Lladrindod, (Landod as the locals call it) very easy to walk into from the town or from the huge car park at the rear.
Recommend without hesitation.

“always a good choice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2013

We have had lunch at Spencers twenty or more times over the last 5 years and not written a review! Not sure why not! Anyway my new TripAdvisor policy is to leave a review everywhere we go and do our little bit to help a site we use all the time ourselves for recommendations. So as we had lunch at Spencers again yesterday......!

I guess 20 plus visits over the years says it all really. Spencers is our 'go to' whenever we anywhere around the Llandrindod area. The food is consistently good and freshly prepared. Whilst not the cheapest around it is always money well spent so that justifies paying a little (and I do mean a little) more than you might pay elsewhere but then risk be disappointed. At Spencers you can order and relax knowing the meal that comes will be enjoyable. The service is friendly and very polite and the atmosphere extremely relaxing and 'with character' which can not be said of most larger hotels. There is a gentle elegance about The Metropole (which boasts Spencers as its bar/brasserie) but it has a laid-back feel and just quietly gets on with 'being there' as it has been for well over 100 years. The owner is the great great grandson of the founder and I think that family ownership comes through in the way the hotel presents itself and in the care taken with staff quality. It always feels like the staff actually quite enjoy being there and get on as a big team which in turn of course much improves the experience for guests and diners alike. The large reception lounge is a great place for gently watching the world go by too. Recommended - would be very surprised if you leave disappointed.
