As we love quite close to this pub we do use it often. The food is pretty good and the prices are reasonable. The Landlord comes across a bit miserable but I guess running a pub is stressful. There is a small outdoor play area...More

Spending a couple of nights at a nearby B&B and thought we’d give this place a go for dinner. Our B&B landlady referred to it as “cheap and cheerful” and that summed it up beautifully. When we arrived there was football on the TVs so...More

We really enjoyed dinner at The Sandpiper this week: 3 courses, all delicious and fantastic value. Very friendly service, lots of comfy seating inside plus outdoors too. Parking outside. My veggie curry was delicious!

If you want lots of noisy children who are let loose by parents to run amok, while the white van boys try to teach the children how to increase their vocabulary (tut tut) then the Sandpiper is the place. While there you can also tackle...More

Food here is typical pub food. Home cooked not home made. A Green King franchise the menu dictated. E.g. smash mash. If you like burgers and chips then this is the type of meal you will like. Lots of T.V.'s all showing sport and usually...More
