Stopped here for quick lunch. Menu was simple but with great choices. Both myself and wife went for the burger. It was a very nice quality homemade burger with all the trimmings. Service was very good also. Would recommend to others for great cost, quality and service.

Visited this pub in the summer whilst visiting friends and it was a pleasant experience with that in mind we payed another visit. I had the beef burger this time around and I was quite pleased to find that you can have it medium or well done because it is home made fresh to order. Their onion rings are always... More

Popped in with some friends spare of the moment. Was very busy but got seated and our drinks very quickly by the helpful, smiley waitress. We enjoyed our dinner 2 course for under £11 pound. (Well worth it) and I ordered off the specials board. We will definitely be returning and will recommend the Sandford to all my friends.

We stopped here for lunch when we were passing. We had a jacket potato and a prawn baguette. The price was very good. Good if you want a cheap sit down lunch. The waitress was very friendly 😁

They chatted to us whilst we were waiting for food, they even kindly gave our dog some roast chicken, which was... More

We passed through here last year and decided to stop for a meal as the whole family were hungry. Service was a little bit slow and it took them about 20 minutes to even take our order but the lady who served us was polite and was interacting with our children. The food was lovely but I felt it was... More

I would love to point out that we are currently running 2 courses for £10.95 from our Pub Classics Menu and we have a Mid Week Carvery on every Wednesday for £7.95 and... More
