Stayed in local bed and breakfast just round the corner from here (Avon Beach B&B) and this was ideal local establishment to dine out. Family all made welcome, including the children. Would eat here again.

Thank you for your review. We usually only have the volume in when there is a game on and only in the sports side. The restaurant side have no volume

There were 6 of us pre-booked. We all had a couple of drinks and a single course meal. The pub has fairly good ambience and the staff are friendly but not over the top. It s a great pub for food at a good price.

We had seen this pub on the way to Muddesford. It's part of a well known chain. The offers on 2 for 1 meals are very reasonable: £5.99 for two courses ( over 60- years of age), £11.99 for two meals from a wide selection....More

Welcoming pub, friendly staff, lovely meal and hot food. Reasonable prices. The tables were kept clean even though the place was busy. Definitely go again. It is wheelchair accessible except for the part near the children's outside play area.

Visited with family and found this to be great value with lots of different food options and deals. I had the vegetarian homity pie with chips and peas which was delicious! An absolute bargain and does what it says on the tin.

Yes it's a Greene King pub, we don't usually go to chain places - maybe Spoons now and then - but the Sandpiper was a nice place with good menu and the food was excellent
