Dined at Sprout this evening with my bestie. Delicious food, great atmosphere and the best service from our wonderful hostess Hannah. Thanks for a great evening.

We arrived to a very busy and noisy restaurant and I was not sure I was going to enjoy the evening, but the food definitely made up for the noise. We all had three courses and all enjoyed the food which was well presented and delicious. The service was excellent and I look forward to returning.

Had a 5 course degustation lunch with matching wines at Sprout recently (on election day) - menu was excellent and every mouthful was a treat. Great value despite being quite expensive at $80 a head (with Ent book voucher) but both food and wines were excellent and served generously! Chefs know their stuff.

Quality food, service and surrounds. Don't be put off by the pub downstairs, walk upstairs and be surprised. Menu was very seasonal, well cooked and everything delicious. Good wine list available by the glass as well as variety of beers. Highly recommended, will come again.

Sprout restaurant located upstairs at The Crown and Anchor Hotel is a lovely modern contrast from the downstairs bar. The restaurant was busy and noisy on the Friday evening we dined. Hats off to the welcoming lovely staff especially the smiley chatty floor manager. The entrees read as interesting and exciting. Rather than over indulge we decided to give entrees... More

The food is still very tasty, but the service let a bit to be desired... I had made reservation but when arrived although the place was quite empty seemed that there was some... More

We weren't sure what we were going to get when we saw the downstairs hotel which was a bit tacky and loud. But, we were pleasantly surprised when we went upstairs to find a relaxed, atmospheric restaurant. The table service was excellent! We had a Californian waitress who was fantastically helpful and very accommodating. The cocktails we ordered were perfect.... More

Great food, wonderful service. Special menu for mothers day, simple but great flavours and still the classic sprout style. One minor criticism is the entry stairs through the pub, views of the poker machines, smell of beer. It just doesn't fit with the experience up stairs, really minor point, but it would be nice if it could be improved.

My husband and I enjoyed a really beautiful dinner tonight at Sprout. The flavours were interesting, it was cooked to perfection and the desert was delicious! We will be back for sure!
