Got seated around 8pm. Served 1st course about 8.30 and it was a burnt tartlet. Mains arrived about an hour later to our table. A total shambles. Not the 3 staff members fault. How can 3 people deal with 31 patrons? The majority of us, if not all, will not be back. The mains & dessert good but too late by the time we got it..

We visited The Spire restaurant on a Saturday evening and we had a choice of two menus (one early bird) There is free parking on laneway leading to restaurant. It also has an upstairs which would have been the gallery when used as a church so very unique setting. We were greeted with a friendly smile and shown to our table. I have special dietary needs and I was helped make my selection from the menu. There are gluten free options, but advise on booking. I had artisan olives, chorizo and spiced almonds & it was an unusual mix of flavours and textures that made a great combo. My husband had sourdough bread with tomato/chilli oil & our starters of Chicken Rillettes were so good that there was no conversation between us while eating, only nod's of approval. The house white was very drinkable also. The mains choices ranged from pasta dishes to fish, chicken, lamb etc and steaks which is what we had chosen and were cooked to perfection. The desserts I remember were Banoffi spring roll and Sticky toffee pudding. The chef's vast experience of Artisan foods/ pastries is printed on the menu and food is sourced locally. I noticed the kids 'hidden veg' meals available too. Overall the food combo and great flavours were a pleasure for the tastebuds and money well spent. The staff all very friendly and our waitress was very attentive. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience and will definitely return. Arrive Hungry!
