We came here for a staff do and booked the buffet for £14. The plates were tiny ( like tiny side plates) and the selection miniscule. Poor value for money and felt like Tesco party food that had been cooked from frozen. No dessert at all. Drinks expensive. Will not go back.

Went for drinks with friends at the Sands. It's a great pub, friendly staff, really good food! We went back twice! Lovely outside area as well.

Carla, the Manager, was very helpful in discussing menus, costs and accommodating our (in the end) 29 guests for Sunday Lunch on May 29th 2016. Before... More

Was walking by and popped in for lunch. My partner and I were amazed by the decor, service and food. The staff were amazing and the food, delicious. I would recommend people to pop in and try it.

Called in on Sunday lunchtime and the service we received from all staff was very friendly and efficient from the moment we stepped in the door. Picked up a menu and after much deliberating between a roast or a burger and chips opted for the burger and I have to say it was very good and nicely presented, shared a... More

I held my party at Sands last Saturday and cannot sing their praises enough. In the afternoon my sister and I went to decorate the function room and nothing was too much trouble with all the staff. The Canapés provided at the party were delicious and Carla and the team made the evening a fantastic success. Would recommend to anyone... More

A really good choice, we both had the salmon which was cooked lovely with noodles and a yummy desert, a must have. The staff were attentive and... More
