“Very nice midweek evening meal”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

Went with my daughter for an early evening meal, we had three courses, 1 glass of wine and 1 bottle of water and came to £40. We thought excellent meal and very friendly staff. Not overcrowded on a Tuesday evening early, we went about 6.30 and seemed to fill up about 7.30. Would recommend as a good price and good portion sizes too.

“2 courses for £13.99”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

Excellent food and excellent value. The Estuary up the road was full and so glad it was because the Sand Bar was excellent value and much better food. Decor and atmosphere much more relaxing. We had the 2 course for £13,99 which was perfect.

“Lovely lunch”
Reviewed 18 May 2014

Had a very nice herring salad and crayfish risotto with sugo. Both really excellent. Very large portions ( you could share the risotto for lunch) and a nice atmosphere. Excellent value for 13.99 at weekends and 11.99 evenings etc.

Service was a bit chaotic and they got it wrong a couple of times but the owners etc are very friedly and not a major issue at all.

Would highly recommend the dishes above and a visit.
