    I had vegetarian pizza, it was large, thin base and tasty but I felt it could have had more variation of vegetables on it. My sister in law had courgette spaghetti which she thought would be made totally from courgettes, instead it was normal spaghetti with some courgettes mixed through it, a bit misleading ,especially if youre not a big pasta lover.

    The food and service were fantastic. This was my third and my husband’s first visit to OSP and we both loved our evening there. Portions were generous, Michael gave great service and all three course were delicious. We are far too much and next time we’d share the starters and puddings. We’ll be back again. Even though we have to drive into Luton to eat and one of us can’t drive we feel it’s much nicer and better value than restaurants in our village.

    Visited OSP with friends visiting from Norfolk, they’d never been before. I’d never been on a Sunday before and it was great to experience the roast. It was delicious although it would have been nice to have chosen the vegetables, I’d have had carrots instead of parsnips, but it didn’t spoil it. The gravy was really good, as was the cocktail. Definitely recommend it, book, it was busy all the time we were there.

    The staff were very welcoming and polite. The food was delicious. We both had carbonara 5* We are quite traveled and carbonara is one of my favourite meals to try in other countries. This was one of the best. Not sloppy and not too dry. We ate in piece and did not feel rushed. Will definitely be returning. Soon!

    A lovely little place to go for brunch. Variety of food choices. Would love to try other things on the menu. The green goddess omelette was quite big so definitely value for money.

    Calm, welcoming and extremely friendly environment. The staff are always delightful. Wonderful vegetarian food, the halloumi burger was amazing, fresh and delicious. A vegan menu was available as well as the regular menu, so double the usual choice. There’s always something different here and new to try as the menu changes fairly often. Lovely cocktails, home made dessert options, feel very at home in this quaint restaurant.

    Welcomed by the lovely Michael, very attentive, and helpful as we had a young child (5). We went for the Vegan taster menu, was out of this world. So much flavour in everything. You can tell the level of care that goes into everything they make there. Was paired really well with wine. Cocktails were super fun, and well poured

    Big portions, however not a great Sunday lunch. Had the pork which was a bit fatty but had no crackling. Sacrilegious! Meals were also served lukewarm. Liked the fact you can order a smaller portion for children but had no idea of the price of any of the food! 2 adults, 2 children Sunday lunches with drinks, 1 coffee and 1 slice of cake cost over £65. We bought some meats from the deli which is a lovely addition, but that added another £15. All in all spent over £80 which for a cafe style venue seems a bit too pricey.

    We were welcomed into the restaurant on arrival and the staff were attentive and helpful throughout. The food was amazing - I really should have chosen a child's portion though, I couldn't really make a dent in it! I would have liked more of a choice as it was the all day breakfast menu on offer but as it was Christmas Eve I'm aware that it had to be limited as it was closed for a couple of days afterwards.

    I met a friend I had not seen for a long time for a catch up and some lunch; they had not been to OSP before. We had a long leisurely lunch and we were both more than satisfied with our choices. I had the squid - lovely with a good hit of chilli and my friend had the burger with maple syrup - OMG - it was even topped with a fried egg - how she ate it all I don't know! The choices are quirky with lots of options for drinks too. We had a warm welcome from the Manager who was busy during service ensuring all diners were satisfied and the waitress was helpful, especially when we came to pay and she was mixing a cocktail - she explained the different themes and options they offer. We'll definitely be back!
