Had a lovely family lunch. Good selection of dishes with something to suit everyone. Particularly liked the gooseberry and elderflower ice cream! Staff were friendly, welcoming and attentive. Decor was calm and relaxing. Will definitely be back!

Staff very efficient, showed straight to table and drinks order taken when seated. Travelled with 4 couples, food order taken and served very quickly, everyone enjoyed their starters and main courses, no room for pudding but they did look good. Surroundings were very nice tastefully decorated.

We spent two nights at the Sandford Arms and were absolutely delighted with the place. Our room was warm, comfortable, quiet and spotlessly clean, it even had a shower and a big bath (plus point). Better still was waking up on a lovely sunny day and looking out of the windows across to the Pennines. We were made very welcome...

We had booked but when we arrived we were left standing at the bar for 10 minutes. My Dad uses a stick and needed to sit down, but we were being completely ignored by the two ladies behind the bar. One had been serving food and avoided our gaze every time we tried to catch her eye or speak to...
