Went to The Red Bull on a day out in Sandwich, a place we love to visit. I ordered bubble and squeak but as I did not want the black pudding I was offered bacon instead, it was no trouble. We all enjoyed our meals. The staff were very friendly without being over-bearing. It was a joy to be in... More

Spit and sawdust??? Have been going to this pub for a long time. The best pub food in sandwich and undoubtably the best real ale in sanwich. Dogs have a place in a pub and allways have done. The place is allways clean and tidy, certainly does not smell of dog. Why are some people so bloody miserable! If you... More

Popped in fur a bad meal on Tuesday evening and was very very disappointed! The toilets were run down, shabby, unwell and had flakes of paint coming off all over the floor. Very much in need of a decent upgrade. Then the food.... Oh my goodness. I used to really like the Red Cow as a traditional English pub -... More

On our first visit to Sandwich, we made the mistake of stopping at the first lunch possibility we saw after the car park. Went in, ordered a couple of drinks, noticed the lunch menu up on the blackboard and on the tables, and ordered a Ploughman's Lunch. Pursed lips from the barman and doubtful head shaking.
