Friday lunchtime treat to catch up with an old friend, we wanted somewhere quiet and cozy. Quiet it was; but staff were inattentive and got order wrong three times. That wasn't as bad as finding the bread of my ham sandwich was mouldy. Admittedly I wasn't charged for the sandwich but shall not be going back.

We visited at Sunday lunchtime. It was a really cold day but the restaurant was also cold. Menus were brought quite quickly but we weren't told about the daily specials - only after we had ordered our food did we see people on another table order food from the specials board - which had been brought to their table. Although... More

We had a lovely meal at the Sandstone tonight. Lovely special of Sea Bream had by two of us and everyone was very pleased with their meal. The restaurant had a blip this last summer with several different chefs, but has bounced back and so definitely worth another try.

This was our second visit to the Sandstone - the other was at least two years ago. This is because we could not find it for a long time; even forgot the name! Now that we have it firmly located, we will return; maybe, just maybe, to sample some of their other offerings than the fabulous Sunday Lunch. We are... More

The staff are friendly and helpful and it is a nice pub with... More

My husband and I stopped here while out walking. We shared a fantastic margherita pizza (hand-rolled base) and crunchy fries, and didn't share our cider. The place was very welcoming and cosy, and the barman (I'm afraid I didn't catch his name) was friendly and knowledgeable about the menu and drinks. We weren't able to stay longer (to have dessert...

On a miserable January morning we wanted to get out of the house and randomly chose the Sandstone, as our destination for lunch. Nothing to look at from outside it was great inside; a warm welcome, clean toilets with hot water, a good choice of drinks and a pleasant ambience although fewer eating than we expected. The menu had a... More

We were recommended this venue because of a new chef which everyone was raving about. When we arrived the two men at the bar looked upon us as if we had two heads. There were no smiles, no greetings, we were shown straight to our table. The menus were given to us without any recommendations from the chef's specials board.... More

We had travelled over from Liverpool to stay in the area and being a bit early we came across the Sandstone and decided to call in for lunch. We received a very warm welcome, all staff very friendly and we were so glad we came here as there was a great choice on the menu. We had rabbit canelloni, chowder,... More

Highly recommend The Sandstone. They catered amazingly for our party of 11 today. The food was superb, excellent menu choice and great wines and very good real ale. Family friendly, lovely inside and all in all a fantastic country pub.
