I've had the opportunity to visit Sands on a few occasions and each time i have found the whole experience extremely pleasant with great food, great staff and a great experience. Nice range of beers and gins and a friendly atmosphere to consume them in! Well catered private functions as well with a well stocked and varied buffet. Definitely worth... More

We booked the function room for our joint party last night and we cannot thank Carla and her team for a fabulous evening. They were all so accommodating and nothing was too much trouble. We had a buffet which is delicious and lots of our friends who have never been to Sands at Bleak House before will definately be returning... More

Booked many and attended parties here. Catering excellent with Carla and Tracey looking after every detail. Nice lunch venue to visit during the week. Decent company to sit amongst. Sunday lunch is delicious. Very good wine list. All good beers on tap. Nice surroundings and atmosphere with plenty of space for celebrations. Lots of parking.

Met with 3 golfing friends for a post round meal. Have been visiting the Bleak House for some years and this is the best visit yet; attending caring staff, food quality and presentation improved too. Tried the Gammon Eggs and chips. Gammon was char grilled so had a nice bbq taste. Chips we crisp on outside and fluffy inside. Eggs... More

Last here around 3 years ago - the food is OK but limited selection. The atmosphere very noisy - perhaps it was a Company do. Service could be better and has potential to be a more inspiring place - so, so but others like Red Lion do it slightly better.

Even though it was at 2.30pm we were greeted by pleasant staff and we were advised the kitchen would close at 3pm, We ordered 3 light meals and WOW what turned up was more than expected. A big thumbs up to those in the kitchen, well done,... More

The staff, apparently, were exceptionally helpful in organising the party (pre-booked, table d'hote, 15 people). Next, they need a chef - or, at least, a competent cook. The food was dire. The fish dishes were dry, the chicken breasts cooked until all moisture and taset had long since disappeared, and the pork bellies pronounced "disgraceful". But midst this carnage, pride... More

We had our wedding reception here on the 19th November 16 and I have to say they have done an amazing job. Carla and her team went above and beyond what was needed and was attentive from the first time we sat down with her. Food was incredible and so was the rooms. All in all a fantastic venue and...

This became our meeting place and stayed here for lunch before our next appointment at a car factory down the road, we all placed separated orders, we arrived slightly later than the group but all food arrived within a short period of time at the same time. Food was very tasty and nicely presented. I didn’t see any food left... More
