We picked this restaurant because it looked really inviting. We were seated almost immediately upstairs. There were two other tables occupied up there but downstairs was full. We ordered a bottle of wine then chose the 2 courses for £14.99 which we thought very reasonable especially for the choice on the menu. The food was excellent. The decor and ambiance... More

In today for late lunch with my mum - quiet at the time but great friendly service and delicious food. Had the two courses for £14.99 which was more than enough. Wish I wasn't driving wine menu looked good! Will definitely be back to try the wine and homemade ice cream!!

We visited the sand bar for drinks only (on this occasion) but as ever made to feel welcome. Nice atmosphere and friendly clientele. It's a great bar for the over 25's.

Food and Service was excellent. We hadnt visited the Sandbar for a number of years but took parents along for lunch to celebrate mum's 70th birthday and so glad we did. Will definitely be returning soon

The rain was lashing down and it was freezing outside so we were very grateful to get into this lovely warm restaurant. The menu was massive and confusing. There was too much choice. The whitebait was well-cooked but under-seasoned with no lemon. The smoked haddock "hash" was fishy mashed potato (the fried egg on top was cooked to perfection, however).... More

Myself and Mrs W took the cheeky option that following a brief stroll along the Broadway we would take advantage of the £14.99 for 2 courses lunch offer for a belated wedding anniversary from the previous month. We both had the whitebait as the starter, with an excellent wasabi aioli. We then both had their hash for lunch, I had... More

I visited the Sand Bar recently for a post-Christmas catch up with some Family. Always a good sign when a restaurant is fully booked in the middle of January! We all opted for the set menu (two courses for £14.99 - exceptional value). I can't really pick many faults with the place. Food was nice and tasty, and as mentioned... More

We visited The Sand Bar as a group of four. Even in early January it was busy where we were expecting it to be pretty quiet. Had pre-dinner drinks at the bar downstairs and then we were shown upstairs to our table. The table arrangements made moving about a bit tricky as there was not a lot of space between... More

We stumbled across this place about a year ago and have been back 6 times despite it being a good 40 minute drive from my house. Our last visit was for a small birthday party for my wife and twin sister. There were 12 of us in total and as usual the girls at the front of house were fantastic.... More
