Fabulous once again. Great to try a couple of dishes that weren't on the menu when we last came. And the bottle if Assyrtiko was delicious. Thanks for another great evening.

The cooking and presentation of dishes is exquisite. Portions on the sharing plates are a bit small for the price. The main courses are much better, particularly the fish and lamb dishes

Great food, fantastic service and when our wine was corked the waiting team were very relaxed in replacing the bottle. We had a fantastic night out, it feels more like dinner in Berlin or Brooklyn than Lewisham so highly recommend.

There were limited gluten free options including no gluten free milk alternatives, When i asked to make my own meal from the menu given my dietry requirements i was informed i couldn't. It was only when i stated i am also dairy free i was allowed- given the lack of any gluten free options i would have expected a bit more flexibility i also found the dish worked out over priced as i had to compile my own dish

We’ve had our first brunch at Sparrow and will absolutely be back. Everything was delicious, the staff were friendly and the guy who served us was brilliant- very warm and funny and helpful. Really reasonable prices considering the quality of food was so high.

We had long heard about Sparrow and how great it was and were both very excited to finally have a chance to go. Sadly we felt really let down by the food which, although great on paper, was lacking in flavour and didn't feel like it had been cooked with the care we expected. For example, we had the lamb chops which were cooked but the fat hadn't been rendered, the chops were tough and had only briefly, it seems, been placed on the grill. Eating them with only a butter knife was a comical exercise in perseverance The other dishes were disappointing and lacked notable flavours. The broccoli was overcooked and the dressing didn't add much. The chicken skewers were cooked well but would have been so much better had they been cooked on a hot grill. The satay sauce was fine but felt like something I had made at home. The pasta was the stand out dish for me but again felt very much like a dinner I might make on a weekend. We didn't venture into dessert - we didn't want any more disappointment. The wine we had was fine. I feel like they have really missed an opportunity to have a small selection of well considered and interesting wines. So overall we ate food we would cook at home, that tasted like bland versions of what we cook at home. Wine was fine.

What an amazing restaurant ! The food was divine , the drinks super elaborate and the service was extremely friendly and efficient it was our first time with a group of friends ( one of us had already been a couple of times and recommend it ) and we couldn’t have had a more delightful night . It’s a true hidden gem despite being exposed to the main road , it feels like you have been transported to another place . Definitely 5 out of 5 stars and we are now going to become regulars . Thank you .
