Eaten here many times for both breakfast and lunches. Always good home cooked food, made with quality ingredients. Staff friendly and an attractive setting.

Busy little cafe with great home bake cakes, our third visit to Sparrows was as good as the previous two! The farm shop is also well worth a visit - particularly the butchers!

Only remembered about the cafe by accident and what a delight it was. So good that I've been back twice in the last 2 weeks. I would recommend booking a table if going during lunch time as it is absolutely heaving. Excellent quality produce, very good value for money.

I love going to this restaurant as it offers very tasty and different food. A pity about the cramped downstairs area as my daughter is in a wheelchair and it is hard to find a place for the wheelchair so that it's not in the way. As this place is so popular, it is better to book beforehand. We saw... More

We were booked in for a hawk walk at the nearby falconry centre; Sparrows seemed the perfect place for lunch. I'm always underwhelmed when I arrive as it seems like a cafe rather than a lunch venue. It was busy but we got an upstairs table for 3. The food took a little while but it was fantastic, tasty and... More

We decided to have Sunday lunch which is always excellent but I have to say a little disappointed with the vegetables today particularly the cauliflower (I always steam my vegetables) but today it was extremely hard when served to us. Also no serving spoons were given difficulty in transfering the vegetables to our plates. Apart from this excellent & delicious... More

Went with a group of friends, I had soup, cake and a hot chocolate. It was a very busy Saturday but the staff did their best to cope. My food was good, but one of my friends was very disappointed with her scone as it was very dry.

We were tempted to share a sandwich to go with the soup. However the soup was served with a generous amount of top quality bread with plenty of butter so we were glad to have passed on the sandwich. Also bought some superb meat and provisions in the shop.
