Friday evening Food

After a long week at work we just fancied nipping out for a quick meal on Friday evening. We usually go to the Castle in Sandal but that was booked up so we thought we would try The Three Houses. Table booked for 7.30pm. Long story short, we got our food at 9.05pm!!!!! Over an hour after... read more

This is one of our locals and a great one to have! Unbeatable, freshly cooked pub food. If you like a great roast dinner and want the smoothest, juiciest gravy around then you must try here! Their 2 and 3 course Sunday Roasts offer succulent roast meats, delicious homemade soups, perfectly cooked seasonal vegetables and more (I'm a fan on... More

It was... More

Following a lovely group lunch at this pub in March this year, we decided to go back with another group for lunch. What a different experience. Despite making the booking several weeks earlier, paying a deposit and sending a pre-order, we arrived to find that 12 of us were squashed onto a table for 10 despite being told we would... More

Four friends and I meet each month for lunch and as most of us live in this area, we decided to visit the Three Houses for lunch, rather than our usual town centre venues. The pub is very cosy and well decorated. It would have been nice if a fire had been lit as it was a cold day but... More

For those who don't know it, this used to be one of the best restaurants in Sandal. But it has slowly been going downhill since it reopened after the fire. The meal tonight was very average, the steaks were chewy and (apart from a lovely girl with a permanent smile) the service was acceptable and the manager grumpy. It will... More
