Held a 40th birthday party at this venue and it was great! Staff helped throughout planning stages and made it very easy to organise. On the day everything was amazing, all went to plan if not better. Venue has a wonderful relaxed feel but also has a licence so beers and wine could flow too. Everyone commented on how good the food was and I even got a text saying 'best buffet ever!' can't ask for more than that. Thank you so much to the staff at The Spark - we will be back, lots!!

Went to the spark late one afternoon as a couple of friends had recommended it. Good range of choice and good service. love the fact it's a licenced cafe so if you want a G&T or beer you can while others may just fancy a coffee. The only negative was that, at the time we were there (about 5.30pm) we couldn't get any snacks so ended up going to one of the pubs up the road as we just fancied something to nibble with our drinks.
However, that comment aside I would definitely go back again

Hi Pieter B,

Thanks for taking the time to leave a review. We're pleased to read you enjoyed our choice of drinks and our service! We think you must have visited us on a Friday or Saturday as on these days we do indeed shut the kitchen for a short period in the late afternoon. This is because on Friday and Saturday nights we open as a restaurant, and so after a long and busy day shift, we need time to prepare the kitchen and venue for our evening menu. At the time you visited us, we still have bar snacks (cakes, cookies, nuts etc.) available, up until we reopen the restaurant at 6pm.

Thanks again and hope to see you soon!

We had a lovely visit here last week. My friend and I arrived and had a leisurely drink before our husbands joined us for a late lunch. The food was delicious! Freshly cooked, attractively presented, hot and most enjoyable. We will certainly be visiting the Spark again.

We held a 30th birthday party at The Spark on Friday the 13 Sept 2013.
There were 23 guests in all and we all had a full 3 course meal from the menu of our choosing.
All the food was brought to the tables at the same time, was piping hot and perfectly presented.
Sajal, Della and their staff were all extremely attentive and professional throughout.
Everyone left that evening praising the quality of the food and service, with promises to return and spread the word about this little gem of an eatery!
I have no hesitation in recommending The Spark to anyone in complete confidence.
