“Lovely!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 October 2013

My sister & I are regulars in The Spark Lichfield. The staff are always friendly and chatty towards us & other customers. We mainly visit for drinks & the liquid hot chocolate's are just to die for!! (the milk chocolate one is my favourite.)

We have also visited on several occasions for lunch. The sandwhiches are big and tasty! I personally recommend both the Fish Finger and the Pork Sausage sandwiches!!

We also had our birthday a couple of months ago and received a "Birthday E-mail" each for a free main course from their evening menu, we ended up having a 3 course meal, which we throughly enjoyed!! :)

“Brilliant Birthday Bash”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 October 2013

I recently rented the upstairs room at Spark for my 40th birthday party. The whole thing couldn't have gone smoother, it's a great venue for such an event. The buffet I'd ordered was first class and many of the guests said how great it was. The layout of the building is such that the bar is downstairs, but the staff were super helpful, set up tabs for everyone and took orders. They even put up the decorations for us. I would not hesitate in recommending holding a special event here.

“Best sandwich in a long time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 October 2013

I visited Lichfield yesterday and came across this lovely place. I had a steak sandwich with caramelised onions and it was gorgeous! I could have eaten another but was stuffed! I also had a hot chocolate with the works which was also lovely!
The staff were friendly and there was a nice modern, relaxed feel about the place. My drink and sandwich came to £10.90 which I was happy to pay for the quality.
I would definitely visit here again the next time I'm in Lichfield.

“Must listen to myself more”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 October 2013 via mobile

I has resisted eating here despite the glowing reviews as I thought it maybe trying to be something it definitely isn't.
I'd seen the menu, prices and the location and felt it had to fall short on all expectations.
My wife persuaded me to have breakfast there the other day.
In my opinion £17.50 to sit in what is basically a shop window to eat a very mediocre breakfast whilst my wife had an egg on dry bread which took 20 minutes to arrive despite the place being empty is some sort of a joke.
I can only assume its because most of the Sparks clients haven't been to an establishment that gives value and quality for money and isn't just another pretentious over priced con.

Hello Beaubleep,

Thanks for taking the time to post a review. We were really sad to read your preconceptions – not only about us, but especially about our customers and it’s a shame we couldn’t change them on your visit.

Best wishes,

“The Best Buffet Ever!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 October 2013

Held a 40th birthday party at this venue and it was great! Staff helped throughout planning stages and made it very easy to organise. On the day everything was amazing, all went to plan if not better. Venue has a wonderful relaxed feel but also has a licence so beers and wine could flow too. Everyone commented on how good the food was and I even got a text saying 'best buffet ever!' can't ask for more than that. Thank you so much to the staff at The Spark - we will be back, lots!!
