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

I Popped in on spec with my elderly mother, uncle and partner at 7.30 on Friday evening ... We were surprised to be seated without having to wait. The menu was varied and priced similar to other pub restaurants in the area. When the meal arrived we were pleasantly surprised by the quality and presentation of food. The staff were... More

I visit Sands often, and I honestly believe it is the best restaurant in the area. The bar is always welcoming and friendly with a good selection of ales and wines. The staff are always first rate, with a welcoming smile and nothing ever seems to be too much trouble. The food is out of this world with a revolving... More

I have been here twice now once for Sunday lunch and for breakfast. The decor and lay out is very good it does have quite a buisness corperate feel about it the food is good but maybe a little more pricey than necessary! Staff are friendly and polite. Id say its more restaurant than pub as there is limited seating... More

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.

We had booked the Sands back in November 2015 to ensure we got the date we wanted. This was for a party of guests of between 20-30 people for a 3 course Sunday Lunch. 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
