Visited Battle in early June and was surprised how busy Sparrows was. However found a table outside with wonderful views and the service was prompt and efficient. The food was great and in particular the pork belly drew compliments. Some reviewers should remember that quality food takes time to prepare.

we ordered a tea and a coffee and cake. You have to place the order at a till, giving a table number and then wait. It took 18 minutes to arrive. Whilst we were waiting, several members of staff came into the garden to chat to friends. Clearly customer service is not a priority at this establishment.

On various visits to this place found that the farm shop and history about the area was excellent. But the cafe sparrows has much to be desired the cakes are very nice and refreshments service is a little laxed and over priced quite noisy when busy ...6 out of ten i would give this cafe

Visited this cafe on a midday sunday. The weather was nice enough for us to sit outside. Me and my partner both hot chocolate and scones with jam and cream. Both were really nice. Watch out for the farm cat that likes to sit on the tables and have a bit of a lunch whilst you pamper it.

Took an elderly relative out for lunch. Have been to Sparrows several times before and have never been disappointed. Place was very busy but we were found seats straightaway. Service was polite and efficient. I had a chicken salad and my companion ham and chips. Sweets were also very acceptable! All dishes were nicely presented and delicious. It's nice to... More

We visited Sparrows on 22 June for light lunch at about 2pm. The restaurant was emptying after the peak of lunchtime. We sat at a table which was not cleared and cleaned from the previous customers . After about 10 minutes we had to go to the desk and request the table be cleared. We then ordered basic light sandwiches... More

This is a great cafe - the staff are always friendly and the food is fantastic. Portions are very generous so I think it's great value for quality food. Came recently on a Saturday afternoon with my daughter. It was very busy but the service was prompt and on point as usual. I ordered a children's pasta which even came... More
