Mothers were happy

We went for Mother's day lunch and having left it a bit late we were pleased that they fitted us in at a decent time (2pm), and we even added two more people a couple of days before as well and that was OK too.

came here for Sunday lunch with my wife, daughter and son in law on Sunday March 1st 2015. Decor is very good in restaurant, light and airy. The food was simply exceptional. Extremely high quality and served by efficient, helpful and friendly staff. They were all a credit to this establishment. Granted, it wasn't the cheapest place we have ever... More

Decided to have a light lunch before doing a ramble in the area. Lunch so good that did not need to cook in the evening and was very reasonable cost.

Enjoyed an impromptu visit for an early dinner at Sands and were treated to a well cooked, fresh and inspiring meal with nice ale, 80's music (which suited our ages) and pleasant staff in comfortable surroundings. Job done!

I came here for lunch back in the summer, and it was a very quiet location. We sat in the garden and had the most wonderful burgers. The service is fantastic. The garden has some nice pergola type areas to sit under and escape from the sun. We took a walk across the common after our lunch. I suspect that... More

Wife, self and two friends had dinner last Friday. Admittedly, the service was "paced" as there was a large party in the private dining room. But we enjoyed time to catch up and sip some very acceptable Chilean white. The meal itself was very good: one mighty, tasty burger, two roast chicken and duck-three-ways (special mention for the duck which... More
