On our way to visit the peace camp on Godrevy light house, we thought it would be good to drop into the Sandsifter for a drink......must have 80-100 cars there so could not get in. Drove onto Godrevy head and found several hundred people there,wonderful sunset and the lighthouse had the tents illuminated,just a lovely atmosphere.
An hour later we came back and tried to park again but no luck at the Sandsifter, will try again perhaps out of season.

Thank RoyL65

Hello RoyL65, I most sorry (as well as surprised!) to learn that you were not able to park in our car park, and feel you may have been too polite! We have acres of parking and, when really busy, the grass area to the right of the driveway turns into 2 rows of parked vehicles - this has not happened so far this year! As we don't want to be over-vigilant, we have not line-marked the spaces. Please don't be put off, and do try again. If you are the first to start a new row, that's fine! Thank you for giving us 4 out of 5 in spite of your problem, and we really do appreciate feedback.....

Just returned from dinner at the Sandsifter with my partner and son. We had the ribs and the prawn curry, it was simple but great. Service a little bit slack, we have been going on and off now for 3 years and the food service is an area that needs looking at still but all friendly.

I live locally and have visited Sandsifter several times. It has a really nice atmosphere, friendly, efficient staff and excellent food. I thoroughly recommend the Crispy Duck Salad - unusual and delicious! If the weather's good, Sandsifter is ideally located for a stroll on the beach after.

After attempting to take advantage of the free parking at the Sandsifter, my Girlfriend managed to get her car key stuck in the car lock. After quite a few attempts at removing it my girlfriend ventured into the Sandsifter seeking assistance whilst i continued to struggle with the key. She soon returned with a gentleman (i believe it was the owner) and a tin of WD40 after quite a few attempts he went to get some tools and he managed to remove the key.
Being eternally gratefull we decided to have a drink inside. We were greated by a very friendly bar maid who was more than happy to chat with us. We sat down for about an hour and i have to say I will definitely be returning!
Thank you so much for rescuing us and Thank you for a great atmosphere :D
