Good food, good value

Dining out at the Sandstone is excellent, the food is of a high quality, with generous portions and well priced. With friendly staff, a pleasant atmosphere and a selection of real ales, I can highly recommend a visit

This is a fantastic place to go as the food is excellent and a very reasonable price. It's a little bit out of the way but worth the drive. We go on a regular basis and nothing is too much trouble for the staff. We would highly recommend it.

Managed to get the last table in the conservatory restaurant for a group of friends whilst walking in the area at May Bank Holiday weekend. Pub is a really attractive building, with a pleasant bar and seating area, plus the restaurant. There are tables to the front and a decent sized car park. We all ordered exactly the same meal...

A traditional country pub in a location which is great for walking the Sandstone Trail. To maximise "Sandstone" the local beer is from the Sandstone Brewery located nearby. Their "Edge" is very good indeed. Staff friendly and helpful, food plentiful and good. No room for pudding. Had 2 nights out there with friends and will surely return.

After a 5 hour walk around the castle my family and I where thirsty and very hungry. By accident we called in at the sandstone only to have the best meal and traditional beer for a very long time. Spotlessly clean and really friendly staff they have definately made some new friends.

Had a great meal here, good veggie options, not the usual veg lasagne, etc I opted for a Halloumi and Hummus wrap - yummy! My husband had the pie which he said was excellent. Real ales also served which is a must these days. We had to sit in the bar area as we had our dog with us, but... More

This was quite a nice pub, although fairly quiet considering it was peak time on a Sunday. The staff were friendly and helpful. The service was good. The food was nice but when the sea bass came with a salad it came with olives, which would have been fine, however they all had stones in them which was quite annoying... More
