Had an excellent meal last night at The Sparling the Christmas menue was great value for money, and plenty of staff to ensure prompt and friendly service.
The decor is modern yet not stark, with a busy and pleasant atmosphere.
Will definately be returning in the New Year

Not been here since it first reopened after it closed down the last time so was a little dubious but I was pleasantly surprised. staff were very attentive and helpful and the food was very nice and plenty of it. It was very busy but we weren't kept waiting and the food was hot and tasty.

I had chicken parfait which had plenty of toast for a change you always run out! I then had the turkey which was a very large portion of turkey breast stuffed with stuffing and cut in half with an assortment of winter vegetables and a rich gravy/juis I couldn't eat it all a smaller portion would be better nearly all of us struggled to finish our mains due to the size. We all then had baileys creme brûlée which was lovely although slightly undercooked which was an issue last time I had creme brûlée here but still very nice just 5 min longer and it would of been perfect. The meal was £19.95 for the three courses which was well worth it. We had coffees as extra but they weren't very hot and was more froth than coffee after dinner mint would of been nice rather than a dry biscuit! It is Christmas after all.
Anyway it was definitely a really good meal well priced with very friendly staff. Would go again and recommend to anyone.
Just one thing please get the staff in a uniform black trousers would be better than jeans and leggings.
