For the first time ever, we decided we would treat ourselves and have our Christmas Day lunch out. First decision was where. Christmas Day is so special to us, as it is to most people. We had to get the choice of venue right. We couldn't have picked a more perfect place. There was a lovely atmosphere as soon as we got there. A glass of bucks fizz on arrival, we were able to chill, take our time and sit down for our meal when we were ready. This was very typical throughout the whole time we were there. There was 11 of us and we were able to take as much time as we wanted, making our meal very relaxed and unhurried. The food was absolutely delicious. There were 5 courses including coffee, and the service was superb. Very attentive and friendly. The Sparling made every effort to recreate a homely Christmas feel about the place, and it totally worked. They even had a Father Christmas coming round giving everyone a wrapped gift. We were really delighted with our first Christmas Day lunch out, and we will definitely be going back 25th December 2013. If you are thinking of having Christmas lunch out next time round, I would urge you to try The Sparling. We thought it was absolutely fantastic, and at £55 per head, terrific value for money. Thank you to all the staff and management for making our Christmas very special.

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
