Popped in for a drink before doing a Hawk Walk with a group of six. Excellent tea, coffee, hot chocolate & awesome scone with clotted cream & jam.

We weren't expecting our guests so we went out for lunch. Sparrows did themselves proud. We all ordered the "hunters board" which is a delightful selection of cold meats, cheese, scotch egg, pork pie and salad. Everything was of the highest standard, such tasty quality food made from locally sourced produce, just perfect. Washed down with tea and coffee, served... More

Love the fact this place is practically on my doorstep, always a firm favourite in our family for a spot of light lunch or a cheeky cake with a cup of tea. Love the fact that its all locally made and produced, food is always good, lots of interesting cakes and gluten free options available. Only down side is that... More

It was a last minute decision to call here for lunch and we were very glad we did. It was busy but helpful staff drew two recently vacated tables together to suit our foursome. Our choices were one pea and stilton rissotto, two game puddings and one "burger of the week". This was very good food, nothing left and the... More

There was a waiting list for a table but our turn came round fairly quickly. The waitress gave the table a cursory wipe and took our order. The food portions were very generous. The sample board of local meats, pork pie, cheeses, chutneys, pickles and scotch egg was very filling. The beef pie deeply filled and served with home made... More

Had lunch and a coffee here. Vegetarian choice was pleasantly different and the menu generally had some interesting choices but could make a lot more of local vegetables instead of just meat. This isn't a restaurant so don't expect cuisine, but I think it is definitely better than a cafe. The food was enjoyable but would have looked a lot... More

My sister's and I visit here twice monthly. The food is excellent as like the service. Bacon rolls are to die for and nothing is to much trouble. Sll food id to a very high standard. You are able to adjust items on menu. Cakes are gorgeous, on a warmer day you can sit outside and let the world go... More

A late Sunday lunchtime visit with tradition Sunday roast on my mind! A nice table was quickly found in the basic but adequate dining area. My starter was the very enjoyable Smoked Salmon which was very promptly served. There was a fairly long wait for the main course of Battlefield roast beef but it was well worth the wait and... More
