    Booked a table for 4 got asked to switch tables 15 mins into my booking, no incentive was given to do so but moved anyways. Drinks and meals took a very long time to come my booking was for 8pm we ate around 10pm. My food order arrived wrong to be told my food is the same when i knew fully well what I ordered was not what I received. Ordered extra drinks through out the night which took them 20 mins to bring over the venue was not busy and plenty of staff where floating around. Decent food, poor service

    Food good as usual only gripe is that a service charge has been brought in I do not agree with a charge it should be up to the customer how much a tip is also staff should be paid so that there is not a need for a service charge I came very close to telling them to remove it

    Food was great as usual, we were a party of 8 Adults, was asked to sit on a square table that was far too small, so was moved to bigger table which was much better. Will definitely be coming back 👍

    Food was beautifully cooked over charcoal, and one could taste the individual flavours coming through nicely and the meat was Very succulent, tender and cooked to perfection. Salad was Very Fresh, not wilted and dry out, and dressing was right balance. The different rice dishes were bursting with flavour and the herb bread served was very tasty. The sauces served were a perfect compliment to the dishes. Certainly will be visiting again!

    The welcome from staff was lovely. The starter was yummy and good portion. The main platter was disappointing due to being very under cooked and really bland in flavour, which was a shock. We will not visit again.

    Greeted upon arrival by friendly staff who gave us several options. Although only the 2 of us , they happily gave us table for 4 , on second level with live vocalist who was excellent. Great service, lovely traditional Kebab platter , had a great night and will revisit soon ! Lovely venue for any event.

    We visited sparks for my husbands birthday there was 10 of us . 6.30 booking on a Saturday Food is fabulous My biggest negative is that at 8.25 my husband and was given a birthday desert and we all sung at 8.30 the rudest waiter come over and said you have to leave we have a big queue people are booked on this table at 8.30! He was so rude another table behind us was treated the and which cause quite a heated argument between the staff! Such a. Shame to end the evening like this we have had many evening in this restaurant and not had any issue.

    Staff very friendly and pay lots of attention to your table. Food came quick. Fish platter for 2: They told us they didn’t have lobsters, so brought us an alternative that was overcooked and dry. But when the food arrived, it also didn’t have come with Cornish crab, fish cake, chips or salad (unless it was meant to be the garnish). Prawns was tiny and cold. Quite a few mussels had no meat in them. Should have just asked for the menu and pointed it out, but hey ho. Didn’t want to make a scene, so just ate what we got. Strawberry cheesecake: not ‘strawberry cream cheese’, but plain cream cheese and no fresh strawberries, came drizzled with strawberry sauce you’d get from an ice cream van with sprinkles! Husband enjoyed it anyway, so we didn’t mention it. Floater coffee (£7 under their ‘alcohol coffees’): got a regular coffee with whipped cream and told that is what it was meant to be - it’s meant to be an Irish coffee with whipped cream. They fixed it when I complained. Have had much better experiences at Spark (been several times) and always left good reviews. This was one of my least enjoyable.

    We actually booked for the lunch menu special £ 11.95 after asking on the phone and after sitting down and looking at he lunh menu they promtly came and took them away and said "we are not doing that now today" This waiter was rude and we felt quite embarrassed as were taking my elderly parents out for a treat We did stay and have a meal which was quite nice but the service was not great
