Sands was closed down due to the unhygienic premises. It was so bad that it featured in East Midlands Today on the BBC. The pictures of live and dead cockroaches in the kitchens will ensure that we will never visit here again!

Cockroaches found in the kitchen, place shut down, I would avoid this establishment like the plague, unless you want the plague.

Although the website said that the restaurant would be open that evening from 5:30, when we arrived, everywhere was in darkness and there was a sign on the door saying that it was temporarily closed for refurbishment. Shame it didn't say that on the website and save us from having a wasted journey.

We had a meal there on 4th Feb , during our meal the restaurant advised us they had to close due to an incident. We've later discovered they were served a prohibition order due to cockroaches

The warm welcome is always nice to receive when you enter a restaurant. The waiters were professional and always waited for us to eat first before taking our plates away. We had a little mains tester, which was different as no other restaurant has this service! If we wanted our mains to be spicer than they are able to add... More

On their website they state “In these uncertain times whereby personal compromises become a necessity, we at Sand’s offer no such compromise” unfortunately my experience wasn’t to a high standard as the website would have you believe. Scoring: Value for money – 1.5/ 5 (poor for the food quality) Food – 2.5/5 Service - 0.5/5 Venue 5/5 Issues with the... More
