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

After reading some good reviews, we decided to call in for Sunday brunch. The restaurant was full downstairs, so we took a table upstairs. We ordered coffees and 2 brunches. The coffees were served, but minus any sugar so we had to wait a while before catching the eye of a waiter to bring us some sugar. Then the meals... More

Hello TravellingLady, We’re sorry you didn’t enjoy your experience. On the day you visited, two new members of staff were working (both in the kitchen and front-of-house), and although it doesn’t excuse the issues you experienced, we know they’ve only made genuine mistakes. We’ve discussed your feedback with them and we’re happy that they’ll remember your points, so thanks for... More
