Never fails to impress. The dinner rolls to start are always welcome and tasty. Had the lamb rump and it was amazing, as were the zucchini flowers. Our server Kate was very attentive, friendly and a breath of fresh air. They also went the extra mile for my friend's birthday. Will have to make sure we return again soon.

Came here on a Saturday night with 3 others for a birthday celebration. We were shown to our pre-booked table and a drinks menu and water was offered immediately followed by the dinner menu. Surprisingly there were no blackboard specials on offer. The menu was not extensive with 4 pasta dishes, 2 fish and a lamb rump and 1 other... More

My friends enjoyed the chorizo pasta and brisket with pappardelle To finish we had... More

We had high expectations due to the comments on Tripadvisor. Can say I was very disappointed with the meals we had. We were waiting an hour for our entrees but thought it would be worth the wait. Both my partner and I are chefs and I would be ashamed with myself if I sent those meals out. My pasta with... More

Lots of delicious menue choices here. We have dined at Sprout several times and never been disappointed with the quality of the food. Don't be put off by the venue, once you ascend the giant staircase the friendly staff will wow you and the restaurant looks modern and inviting. The only downside to this venue is the level of noise... More

This restaurant has very good food, friendly service, but the ambient/environment and location is a negative. Dinner at week day is an experience, is such a big restaurant that have not many patrons ... so feels a bit out of source.

We were part of a group of eight friends who decided, based on recent revues that Sprout was a good option. Sadly disappointed. Firstly we ordered three beers from the menu provided of beers on tap .... Sorry we don't have that beer!...ok Then a bottle of red from the wine menu... Sorry we don't have that wine!.... Ok so...

I called restaurant for table availability - they were busy, but said they could accommodate 5 people. On arrival, we waited on the lounge and chose the wine. Our table was ready in 10 minutes. After sitting at the table for quite a while, the waitress finally took our drink order, then we had to ask for the menu. When... More

It was David Byrne of Talking Heads fame who wrote the song "Life in Wartime". The well known line "This ain't no party, this ain't no disco,this ain't no fooling around" came to me whilst dining at Sprout last night. We have dined their before and the food is universally good.
