“our meal ' darlings”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

My partner & I ate @ darlings on Sat 25th Aug and were not disappointed. The owners/partners Ken and Liam are just lovely and very welcoming. Food had just the right gap between courses and was excellent. Limited menu but something for everyone. Would definitely go again

“Under new management, now called Darlings”
Reviewed August 25, 2012

This is now called Darlings English Brasserie. Ate there on 23/08/2012. Could not fault the meal or service. Food was delicious and well cooked by the Chef / Owner Liam who has previously worked at The Fat Duck. The menu is relatively small but lots of variety and only to be expected when food is cooked fresh to order. Staff were attentative but not intrusive and very chatty and friendly. Furthermore we were not rushed even though restaurant was busy. I ate there with my girlfriend who is lactose intolerant and as such her choice is often very limited in a lot of restaurants. However I spoke to Liams wife who runs front of house when booking and she was very accomodating stating that if my girlfriend wanted something from menu which contained dairy then the chef would just adapt it for her. This was not an issue anyway as there was plenty of choice of dairy free options on menu already and staff were able to reassure us that everything we ordered would be cooked dairy free. Very reasonably priced for the quality of food and service provided. Relatively small place which fills up very quickly so would advise booking in advance.

“Sapori under new management, great food”
Reviewed June 5, 2012

A new chef took over today and it's back to full strength, although offering a limited menu, but that is a sign that everything is freshly prepared. We had pizzas which were excellent and large. Good value too and very welcoming and friendly. Called Sapori again, but the signage still says "Eight".

“Big deterioration”
Reviewed April 19, 2012

This is now called Eight.We enjoyed the meals when it was Sapori,a real inexpensive treat.Now it is a disaster-no starters,a main meal which was dry with insufficient sauces and a desert which had obviouslycome out of the freezer and been microwaved.The new management are obviously reducing quantity and quality and trying to make a fast buck-so disappointing as this had been one of our favourite eating places.
