Decided to call on the spur of the moment, we drove past on way to drop off a cake and saw it had been refurbished from the outside and was advertising food, I googled and first reviews were polarized, decided to call for a drink and look at menu, once inside we immediately decided to eat. Interior is very pleasant... More

This was our first visit since the refurbishment and I am really glad we called. The decoration has been done well, the whole area is relaxing and inviting. The staff were pleasant and helpful, the menu varied enough for most tastes. We had a fish dish from specials of the day and one from the menu, both were cooked and... More

Myself and family visited the three houses in sandal on Sunday afternoon after a recommendation from a close friend, after not visiting the restaurant for a number of years i can say it was a lovely surprise what changes had been made. The place is so inviting and you feel at home from the second you cross the threshold. We... More

Had our second visit today, we really do like the atmosphere that has been created with the refurbishment, the food was again very good, the service was good without being intrusive. The only slight niggle was the extra charge for mash on our Sunday lunch, I just felt ever so slightly cheated but it won't stop us returning.

This restaurant was recommended by a friend so while in the area thought we should give it a go. So pleased we did the food was excellent - I had the fish of the day ~ salmon and my partner had beef pie ~ both beautifully presented and good quality. Service wasn't the quickest but to be honest we hadn't... More

I come to the Three Houses regular and still enjoy it now. The prices have gone up slightly since the new take over and I don't think they should have changed certain parts of the decor but the atmosphere is still the same. Always have a lovely drink and the beer garden and smoking shelter is nicely done out. Needs... More
