“Superb food for every occasion”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2014

I have eaten here a few times recently. From an evening with work colleagues to a pre-theatre dinner with me Farther the food is excellent, staff friendly and great atmosphere. The three course dinner in a great price and the selection of drinks available is suitable for any occasion. I have no hesitation in recommending it. Can't fault it..

“Lovely lunch”

Visited Sparks today and had a lovely lunch. Brie and cranberry sandwich and my partner had a fish finger sandwich with thick cut chips. Very tasty! Reasonably priced. Well worth a visit!

“Best coffee in Lichfield”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2014 via mobile

I travel from a neighbouring town just to visit the Spark (as often as possible!) Excellent coffee, ambience, service and food. In fact the cappuccino I just finished is one of the best I have ever had. Right, back to work.........

“Gorgeous food and lovely service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2014

We ate here for a work outing. I hadn't been here before, and was looking forward to it as others in the group had already eaten here often. I had 3 courses for £20 - the salmon fish cakes were light and tasty; the rack of lamb was sweet and tender and there was a lot of veg to accompany it. For dessert I had cheese and biscuits - lots of different cheeses! Great music and lovely decor. Fab overall: though we were the only people in the restaurant on the Friday we went!!! I bet when it's really busy it's fantastic.

“Love this place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2014 via mobile

I have visited The Spark on different occasions and can honestly say it's a great place to go, whether you want lunch an evening meal or just a coffee!

Tried it out of an evening for the first time recently and had a great time.

I tried a starter of Honey-roasted Ham Hock with piccalilli and red cabbage. This was a gorgeous starter and something that I have never had before as a combination. My main was delicious Smoked Haddock with a creamy chive sauce. The pudding was a hit-peanut butter brownie-yum!

Aside from the food, which I would say is on par with other great bistros in Lichfield, the atmosphere was lovely. Didn't feel the pressure to leave as with other places. Could have happily stayed there all night.

As a working mum I don't get to go out too often of an evening, but will definitely be going again!
