Pleasant place for lunch

Although Sands has a relatively limited lunchtime menu, there is enough choice and variety to please all tastes.

Pleasant waiters not responsible for the poor food served on this pub. Food as served 20 years ago in British pubs, which gave Britain such a bad reputation. Tasteless risotto starter, tasteless fihcakes with no crab or other fish taste, both served with the same bottled tomato sauce to flavour those dishes...tasteless chicken .... chips were pale but to their...

Went 8th June for a lunch with my girlfriend; car park was packed so I thought that we'd had difficulty getting a table but no, it was very quick and efficient. Had a really delicious meal - my friend had a hand made burger with salad and chips and I had a curry with naan and chutney. She had crumble... More

This was our second visit. Both visits have been for Sunday lunch. The premises are well decorated and comfortable. This was obviously a pub and still has a pub bar. The service was very good. The Sunday lunch menu has about 6 choices for each of starters, main courses and desserts. We just had bread and oils rather than a... More

Was taken here for my birthday lunch as had never been before. Ordered the BBQ pulled pork and absolutely loved it! Portion size was huge so only managed to eat half. Took the rest home though and was still tasty the next day. Will definitely be back to try the dinner menu next time.

Went to a party here a few years ago and now we live in the area decided to go for dinner for a family meal. It was very busy so they had opened the private dining room to add more tables which was fine. The food was good although my husband was served the wrong curry - there were 2... More
