Popped in for quick lunch whilst having a few hours off. Young lady that served us was friendly & polite, with others too. Food was amazing, dessert was gorgeous (lemon cheesecake). Highly recommend. We will be back, hopefully when we have an evening off will try the evening menu. The traffic passing over the bridge is hardly noticeable too. Thank... More

So glad we did, Rob gave us the best welcome even though he was on his own and quite busy. We ordered drinks, found a table for five and... More

We have always used this pub every time we stay in Sandwich. As usual the food was really good and the staff were as friendly as every previous visit. I would recommend this pub to anyone who visits Sandwich.

Myself and my girlfriend walked into this pub last night only to be shouted at by the drunken bar staff and insulted before we even fully entered the building. Put a downer on an otherwise great day in Sandwich.

We stopped in for lunch and absolutely loved it! The lasagne tasted home made and the chunky chips were great! My boyfriend had an amazing - huge - salad too. The staff were really friendly and happy to amend the food order (cheese in the chips, avocado in the salad). We loved it!

Went here after a dismal last pub and so glad we did, great atmosphere in a really old building right next to the older still Toll Bridge. Great place to hang out.
