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.

We went for a late lunchtime meal in between Christmas and New Year. 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

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.
