I had occasion to visit sparrows on a monday and it was full, and very busy. That said we didnt have to wait long to be served. I had a mackeral salad with beetroot and new potatoes with a horseradish dressing, which I asked for on the side. It was fresh and totally delicious and it looked good... read more

Visited on a Monday lunchtime and it was very busy. Maybe this is why service was slow. The waitress seemed a bit stressed and when she eventually took our order for a sausage and caramelised onion roll she offered it on granary bread but when it came it was on a wholemeal roll as described on the menu. Whilst the... More

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
