It has been a few months since my last visit and it was with great expectation that I set off at 7.00pm for my 7.30pm meal. Sometimes when you expect a great meal you end up being let down,. I need not have worried as I can say that I thoroughly enjoyed my visit. The food was excellent and the... More

Joined a group of colleagues for a Christmas celebration at La Boheme last Saturday night The food was excellent, everybody enjoyed their choice from the Sparkle menu, which I thought was really good value for the quality of the food served. The wine was good, too. Look forward to our next visit.

After hearing mixed views we decided to try for ourselves. Very very disapointed. Food poor at best with salt ruining the seafood starter and a main course of duck being totally ruined by the amount of salt in the dish. The lamb was also somehow infused with salt salt and more salt. I cannot describe just how salty it was... More

Dear SecretEscapesReviewer, Whilst we always appreciate reviews, positive or negative, we do not abide by reviews that distort the truth. We have been open for close to 8 and 1/2 years and in all this time, we have never had any guest say the food is too salty. Never. If we had even had a dozen guests report that their... More
