Went on TA reviews and have to say, did not live up to our expectations. Food was not good. Sorry that's it.

“Sunday lunch with friends at The Sandpiper Pub”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2013

Very good service and tasty food. What more could one ask? It was great. Friends and I met up on Sunday as part of my 4-day visit to the area and it looked like it was going to be a good place as the car park was almost full - always a good sign. We sat over our lunch and chatted, the staff were attentive, but not overly so and we all enjoyed our lunch.

“Sunday lunch yummy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2013 via mobile

Had Sunday lunch in here today, excellent value, freshly cooked veg, perfect roast potatoes and you can order extras at no extra cost. The staff are very attentive and always ask if you need extra drinks or desserts so I don't have to leave the table, makes a great lazy afternoon.
