The food is not “fine dining” but most acceptable, affordable, good value and the staff faultless as is the case over the whole group.

Nice place but very average food and a lack of many vegetarian options. Optional extra cauliflower steak is a bit steep at £6 to add to a dish. It was same price as adding salmon. Not really worth the cost. Wouldn't have food there again

Excellent food and very attentive staff. It was very busy and therefore very loud, at times we had to shout to be heard above the noise of other tables. Really well decorated and good atmosphere except for the noise. Would recommend

I really enjoyed the food we had when we visited your restaurant, it was excellent. However, the service could have been better.
Although there were a lot of people around, I had to call someone over to take our order and ask for the bill.
Also, I know very well that it is not an easy job, however, it would be nice if the staff could smile once in a while. It would make it a bit more cheerful I feel.
However, I love the decor and will certainly come again.

Fantastic interior, ambience, food and service.
The service was exceptional, every single person who came to our table had the same friendly, professional and helpful attitude. This is quite rare in my opinion, only to be rivalled by maybe Banyan pre-pandemic.
So well done to the management for training their staff so well.
I will definitely be going back regularly

This venue was recommended to me and I was hopeful for a pre theatre meal with a friend.
I was somewhat underwhelmed at the menu choices, food I am very familiar with and have cooked at home.
I ordered the cod which was nice although chips had to be ordered separately. I was asked whether I required condiments, I requested mayonnaise and was slightly surprised to be presented with the squeeze bottle of Hellmans. It didn’t have the the seal removed and therefore I needed to unscrew and remove the seal, I’m guessing the bottle would then go elsewhere and I wondered about hygiene issues?
The meal was ‘nice’ as was my friends but we were underwhelmed.
The staff were pleasant, the table and chairs comfortable, clean and well spaced.
If you are not particularly adventurous then this could be the place for you.

The Pickled Sprout constantly exceeds expectations! Even the wine list is somehow more interesting, varied and spot on than you expect. Service - led by restaurant manager / initial host who is a student full time and yet manages absolutely top restaurant standard service quality. Friendly staff overall and such a smart. Desirable and ideal focussed menu. Really good fish and vegetarian options - exceptional monkfish starter full of flavour and tight, enticing menu overall. Really good and non-mainstream champagne. The atmosphere and surroundings are lovely even for midweek - and impressively busy. And finally, value. This is a stylish and exceptionally good value restaurant. The quality of food is well above the pricing. Add in the service and it really is terrific. Fourth or fifth visit now and standards remain strong. As a regular across all types and locations from Michelin - starred and cool emerging east london places to boutique country house hotels and restaurants with rooms, this compares superbly in terms of value for money and overall customer experience. Back soon for sure.

Menu choices were limited for our taste. But the food we selected was good, well cooked and well presented. Very limited vegetables with either of the dishes we chose. Purchased a portion of broccoli which was undercooked and luke warm. Fairly dark in the restaurant.

We booked a hightop table which was sited overlooking the West Park Stray, a lovely cosy intimate room with just 5 tables and really nicely decorated. The nibbles selection was our starter and this was really excellent, reminiscent of Tapas. The mains were a Shepherds Pie for my wife and I went for a salad with salmon. They were excellent and the side order of chargrilled tender stem was delicious, there was a real barbecue taste to it which kept you going back for another spear. Really excellent.

We were not rushed and had a lovely chilled meal. We will be back.

Friendly and efficient staff, we did think it was rather noisy as we came in to the restaurant, but once seated we were fine. Food was very nice but one thing should be noted, we signed up for the Yorkshire Hotel £25 per head deal, this can't be spent on drinks, and as we only had the one course, which was more than enough, they don't refund any balance.

Good service. Nice menu - food was very good and portions were large. No room for a pudding. Tables are well spaced. Music a bit loud for me - but I was older than the average age of people eating there. Would eat here again though and it’s a beautiful hotel.

The tables are situated behind the bar area and in an unexpectedly spacious, modern room with a high ceiling. the staff were very friendly, attentive and helpful, while the food was extremely tasty and well cooked. The mains took a bit long to arrive but were worth waiting for and the chef made adjustments to accommodate gluten and dairy free.
The only criticism was that the music was a bit loud along with the sound of lots of people talking.
