Lovely welcome. Attentive service without being intrusive. Food was excellent as always. The server was very friendly and polite didn’t catch his name. Shall definitely be back soon 😄
I had the Sunday lunch menu. Very generous with the beef. Husband had other menu and pasta dish wash lovely. Eat there often, lovely staff and great service, value for money served food to perfection. The menu has enough to please all.
We have been staying at hotel across the road for the weekend and as it was our 26th wedding anniversary we wanted a very special meal without having to travel in the car. We booked a table at The Sparling and then read some reviews and nearly cancelled. How glad we went as we had the most wonderful evening a fabulous meal from starter to dessert with not one complaint, we will most definitely come back again and again even though we live in Cheshire it would be worth travelling for. Thank you all for making our evening so special. Joanne and Stewart Todd
Returned to The Sparling last evening for a casual meal while visiting Preston. Service and food were certainly as expected and excellent. We both had the Sea Bass which was served with a new potato mash (which was perhaps a little heavy) but overall a quality meal. Recommend the chipolatas as a snack starter. Wine prices very fair. Will come again.
Very good lunchtime meal. It's a pity that staff decided to drag out the Christmas tree and other decorations while we were there. I think that sort of thing should be done when they are closed to customers. Slightly confusing £5 voucher deal which clearly said per person but in reality was per table/ bill. Should we have asked for separate bills to achieve the £5 off each? These vouchers are never all they appear to be which is probably why most people don't try to redeem them. As ever the food was very good and usual attentive staff. Will definitely be returning
Disappointed that they didn't have tapas on the menu last night as that is what we had planned on having. Food was nice however. The service on the other hand was dire. There seemed to be 4 staff members on and the restaurant was full. We were there 35 minutes before anyone took our drinks order! Then we had to get someone's attention to order food as again we were left waiting, as were other tables who were also looking round for staff! Have been to this restaurant before for lunch on a Saturday and had a much better experience. I don't think I would go again on a busy weekend evening sadly.
Relaxed lunch and friendly staff . Glad to have the over attentive waiters gone. It was far less invasive with their presence constantly at the table . Previously they would too frequently appear at the table to ask if the meal was ok , which is alright up to a point but to have it happen every 10 minutes or so gets very wearing . Food was excellent and the menu is varied and interesting . There is a great choice of food . Setting is lovely
Couldnt find our reservation. I had the surf and turf paella which stated it had prawns,mussels,clams,chicken and squid.There was no mussels or clams at all and it was extremely salty. The waiters went past the table more times than I could count and still didnt clear away empty glasses or ask if more drinks were wanted.I ordered a dessert and waitied and waitied before eventually giving up and asking for the bill -explained what had happened the order had never been placed in kitchen. They did apologise by taking the dessert off the bill and a round of drinks but it was just really disapointing really as was a special occasion birthday meal for my future hubby.Can't say il be returning sadly.
