Welcome to Civic ownership.
£700 seems high but as others have said, its a major service with valve clearance check, plugs etc. The other thing is if it has not been serviced at a main dealer they will have no record as to what has been done in thepast so will probably quote for everything as per the service schedule recommendations.
Probably too late now but you can buy complete service kits from Cox's and if your not confident, just get your local garage or mechanic to do the service using the genuine Honda parts.
