Everyone was catered for the food was very good, the staff attentive and general service excellent. The private room was very well laid out and attractively decorated. The meal was served promptly, well cooked and... More

There was no need to have reserved a table. Sands is an attractive place, nicely furnished and with very good and discrete service. The set menu bream main course was nice, well cooked , attractive but modest in size ...likewise the pleasant sweets, A marginal 3/4 star rating

We visited here for a drink on the way to order and get takeaway food. We ended up staying and eating here. Haddock chowder was amazing, as was the game terrine. Main courses were as good if not better. Super attentive staff. Great surroundings. Yes, it's in the middle of nowhere so a designated driver is needed (or a taxi)... More

Kevin took care of us & could not have done more for us, Kevin was good humoured & charming. They have a local beer "Tea" which was superb. The... More

Visited on a Monday evening with a friend when it was very quiet. Waitress was pleasant and friendly. Quite a small menu but we both liked what we had. Reasonable pricewise too. Wasn't disappointed but unlikely to be making a special trip there again. If I lived nearer it's likely I'd use it fairly regularly.

There were six adults and a 4 year old. Five had the roast sirloin, one the pork and our Grandson the chicken. The beef was perfectly cooked, thick tender slices, accompanied by great roasties and seasonal vegetables. The traditional Sunday pub roast is taken to another level. Three more of our family turned up unexpectedly, they were greeted warmly and... More

We read recent reviews and were sceptical because of the couple of reviews stating the food wasn't up to standard. My husband said we should ignore them and try it anyway and I'm glad we did. The food was anything but tasteless, presentation excellent, the service was spot on and it was a lovely night. A nice restaurant and we... More
