A picturesque pub in heart of Sandford that offers unique fresh foods and our complete range of ciders as well as local ales and a selection of quality wines, spirits and minerals.
Our bar area and terraces are dog friendly, however the resturant is not.
You are also welcome to use our free wifi.

Come to the heart of the village and enjoy this traditional country pub, with its welcoming bar area and open fireplace. Natural stone features, comfortable surroundings and a traditional oak-framed dining room create a fantastic space in which to relax, eat and drink.

Eat in the informal bar area or in the dining room. Expert food and cider pairings come highly recommended and all dishes, created in the new kitchen, shine with their expert execution, taste and flavour.

In the landscaped pub gardens you’ll find plenty of outdoor seating, a children’s play area and an outdoor pizza oven and BBQ.
