Anniversary Dinner

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... read more

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

For once I did not read any review before going to a restaurant. So I was unbiased or maybe only influenced by the website which looked attractive. The restaurant was quite empty for a Friday evening and that should have given me a hint. The service was adequate, but the food was uninspiring. The starter of spicy lamb was reasonably... More

There is an option to sit in the garden but sadly it was a little too chilly - not to worry we were seated at a nice table in the corner. the food was good although I would prefer more small plates/salads options on a lunch menu. The staff were friendly and helpful.

We dropped in this pub on the way back from Chobham. It is both lovely inside and the food is great. Seemed to be quite a few locals there and the service was great,menu wide ranging and very tasty.

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...

Although Sands has a relatively limited lunchtime menu, there is enough choice and variety to please all tastes. The food is cooked to order, nicely presented, and the service is friendly and efficient. I could definitely taste the fish in my fish cakes, which were generous in size, even though I ordered the smaller option. A good wine list and... More

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
