What is it? A cosy restaurant serving a variety of hand-made European dumpling and spätzle dishes.
Why go? Oh, so many reasons... The staff, who are lovely, the setting, which is warm. And then there's the food. If you're unfamiliar, spätzle is The Sparrow’s speciality: that’s egg pasta common in South Germany, Austria, Switzerland and the Alsace. Meanwhile, a more Eastern European flavour is brought in with the dumplings menu. Add to these the most delicious sauces, daily baked bread and a wine selection that's full of surprises, and you can see why The Sparrows is a place to flock to.
Time Out tip: Book and book early.
