We popped in on a rainy afternoon and stayed for hours. We were made to feel very welcome as soon as we arrived and the quality of service was impressive throughout. The food was lovely (especially the calzone) and range of drinks was good. The...More

I have reviewed this on The Sandrock Bar and Pizzeria page. I liked the old Sandrock, the menu was good pub food and there was always something I wanted. It is now an Italian themed pub. I would rather it would return to the former....More
