Had seen your restaurant on Tv and thought we'd try (especially as its a dog friendly, which is lovely after a walk. Obviously my dog was clean and well behaved, which they all should be seeing as its a lovely restaurant).
The Sicilian wine was lovely and service good.
Although I would love to come back and see muscles in cream & white wine, and Fish & Chips on the menu as these are classic dishes which would suit all especially people who are not big fish eaters. Mmmm shared muscles with a crusty loaf and wine, perfect lunchtime food.
My partner had pork which was very nice though.
Will try again, thank you

thank you for your review. We do have mussels sometimes, but with this weather the local ones our supplier told us our full of mud and not very nice, and to be honest I haven't seen that many at market (I go to Billingsgate myself) I have been told that weather has been a big factor in there not being many around. However, we will have some this weekend. As for Fish & Chips, we only have two small fryers, and whitebait, soft shell crab & fishcakes are so popular that we just wouldn't be able to do them, not until we could find room for another fryer.
It is always fantastic to hear what people think, and I hope to see you and your doggy again. (we make our own doggy ice cream) take care Louise

Have just arrived home after a very enjoyable meal this evening at the Sand Bar. Cannot fault the food, the staff were pleasant and the atmosphere was lovely, it also attracts a very nice clientele. Would definitely go back again.

I phoned to book a table for 7 for lunch and lady asked me to hold, I held for 2 mins, odd I thought, then was told it was fine as long as vacate table by 3.30pm. OK I said. Wondered why their restaurant would be packed out at mid-afternoon. Anyway, turned up and found a large wedding party going on! Some of my party wanted to leave because of the noise and I should have been told/warned about it to be honest. But after 15 minutes the wedding party went upstairs (we were downstairs) and all was fine. Friendly service and good food, promptly served which was a surprise with all the wedding party guests also being in the restaurant. A child in our group was disappointed no burger and chips available (it is listed on the internet menu) but the chef cooked sausage and chips for her and she was happy. One quibble - an additional scoop of ice cream wouldn't go amiss as desserts were small for the price, though tasty.

Had another great quality meal with friends. What I like about the Sand Bar are the professional staff who are always so accommodating. We sat at the high bar tables before dinner with a bottle of fizz, we looked at the menus there. Once at our table the delicious starters and mains came and all great quality. I will always recommend it. Thank you Sand Bar.

Brilliant night of celebrations for my Sister's birthday. There were around 20 of us all ordering drinks and food in the bar area at different times and wonderful Gjovan couldn't have looked after us any better so thank you. We chose the Sandbar as the ambiance is lovely and the food is always good, everyone in our party had a great night and will now be regulars like ourselves. Thank you to all the staff who are always very welcoming and hard working, see you soon.
