Very friendly staff but a bit pricey for a pint of unexciting beer, £3.40p for a pint of John Smith bitter & £4 for a pint of Strongbow cider. Sandown needs a JD Wetherspoon pub sharpish.

When we purchased this building that used to be HSBC Bank, we wanted to keep as many of the original features of this lovely building as we could. The managers office is now our snug room and the original counter was used to make the main bar top. Our renovation work took several months and we opened on 10th May, 2013. Our restaurant/bar is built on the principles of serving quality, home cooked meals, fresh to order at affordable prices. Our aim is to provide a friendly, reliable service improving our standard products, and listening to the customer. We hope our unique service will establish our place in this industry and allow us to make a distinctive and substantial impact for our customers. We welcome customers to come and have a drink or a meal in a relaxed friendly atmosphere. We have a main bar, snug and separate dining room. We welcome families and highchairs and baby changing facilities are available. Our dining room is also suitable and available for private and small functions. We have a specials board in the main bar and a daily desserts board.
