The Sand Bar is located in Leigh, and it's reasonably appealing from the outside. As you walk in, there's upstairs and downstairs, and being a Saturday night, it was reasonably busy, as you would expect. We were sat upstairs, and we ordered both appetizers and main courses. The appetizers were very nice; I had the softshell crab. I'm not convinced... More

Sandbar is located on the high St of this charming little seaside town. Service was attentive however I did need to remind the staff for my glass of water. The bouillabaisse I ordered was tasty enough. Place is dog friendly too.

I booked the Sand Bar for our 3rd anniversary dinner, the reviews on Trip Advisor were good and it is local and always looked nice when I've walked past. We were not disappointed, the service, menu and food were all excellent. The bar downstairs gets very busy and is noisy but the restaurant upstairs was not affected and it added... More

This is such a unique little spot, slap bang in the middle of Leigh on Sea. Atmospheric lighting and decor draw you in and make you want to stay. The wine list is the best for miles and the food never disappoints. It is probably not the wisest choice if you don't eat fish or seafood, but the clue is... More

The Sand Bar – Leigh Broadway. First time visit to The Sand Bar in Leigh on Saturday 15th October. First impressions were very good, lively bar but with good service. The place was busy and buzzing, but not so over-crowded that you could not move. We were offered the choice of a table downstairs near the bar, or upstairs. We... More

My wife and I have been here a few times during the day and evening. It has a really easy atmosphere, people just coming in for a drink or maybe sampling the delicious bar bites or a meal from the extensive menu. There's so many options, good value on Meatless Monday menu. The food is extremely good, service attentive. A... More

Booked for a Saturday night at 7:45. We arrived early (20mins) and were shown straight to our seats. We booked here as one in the group was a vegetarian and they seemed to have good range of dishes. All of the portions were a good size and the staff were attentive. It is the second time I have eaten at... More

First time we have been here and the food was excellent. It was great that we could bring our dog with us hence one of the reasons why we chose The Sand bar. My only criticism was we had to wait around twenty minutes before being asked if we would like a drink. I appreciate it was a busy Saturday... More
