“Best value in town”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

The Sparling is by far and away the best place to eat in the Preston area, excellent quality food at great prices served by attentive young staff. The quality starts the minute you walk through the door.with the welcome you receive.

“Excellent food, service and value for money”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

Middle of January after a hectic Christmas, we realised we hadn't eaten out for ages. We walked into The Sparling with no reservation required and had an outstanding meal at great value prices. We chose the 'Surf & Turf' to share and were not disappointed. There was more than enough food for two of us and we sat near the fire and had a great time with a spend of only £34 between us. Great place.

“Memorable meal!!!”
Reviewed January 19, 2013 via mobile

We went for a family celebration and I rang the restaurant to say it was a special birthday, the owner said leave it with me. When we arrived we had a helium ballon at the table and they Had a wonderful cake iced especially for the occasion. Fantastic food, service and finishing touches......wonderful! Would recommend to everyone!!

“Very nice food”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

Went for a family celebration meal and really enjoyed the food and restaurant. We received a warm welcome and the service was excellent throughout. The menu has plenty of choice and reasonably priced for the high quality of food (IMHO).The steaks were juicy and and cooked exactly as we asked.
We will definately go back.
