Have been many times since it has opened and it is consistently great! It's only a small place but it is filled with character, the staff are also very welcoming and polite.

My friend and I visited The Spark on Friday evening for the first time. We had a wonderful meal served by friendly and attentive staff. The establishment was comfortable, contemporary and very clean. I will certainly book again. Well done Spark!

We have eaten at The Spark several times but never for breakfast - well until now! This must be the most underestimated restaurant in Lichfield. I guess this is because it just doesn't do anything over the top. It IS just great! The team here cook to order - unless you have one of the stupendous cakes - so don't... More

My friend and I (23 year olds) have visited a number of times just for coffee. The prices are expensive but the drinks are nice. On our most recent time we decided to have cocktails instead of the regular coffee's. However, with my friend looking younger for her age she was asked for ID which is normal. She is from... More

Have been here several times now for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and a pudding night. Not the cheapest but consistently good service, good quality ingredients and very nicely cooked and presented. Will definitely be returning

I have been here before and was disappointed with the coffee , but my friend is a fan so I conceded for lunch . Surly , inattentive staff, coffee still nondescript , food expensive , cold and tiny. I didn't want to complain as my friend was paying . A shame , it spoilt a nice day.

Came here with friends for a Saturday evening and the restaurant was full whilst we were here. All food ordered was delivered hot, fresh and tasted great and we had the bonus of three courses for £20. Lots of choice on the menu and everything is home made, pastry, sauces, puddings etc. a hidden gem. Fantastic to find an independent... More

Visited the restaurant for a friends Birthday with a party of ten the other night (7.6.14). Just to be fair, two of our 11 party arrived 20 minutes after walking through the door at the agreed time of 7:30. The rest including myself were on time. The issues myself and our party collectively experienced are outlined below. - No formal/informal... More

The Spark was the perfect venue for my 30th birthday party last year - a great setting with a brilliant atmosphere. The staff were brilliant and made planning my party really easy - they accommodated me really well with music, food and decorations, and were really friendly and enthusiastic on the night. I couldn't have asked for a better venue... More
