Stopped in for a quick lunch on Easter Saturday. Good selection of beers, good service and lovely food at the right price. Exactly what we were looking for.

Booked for a Sunday lunch and were made to feel welcome from the moment we walked through the door. The food (Vegetarian Roast) was one of the best I've ever tasted..yes it really is that good. The dogs were welcomed (and given treats by the owner). The choice of beers are excellent and the bar has a real buzz about... More

Found it by chance, and certainly worth it! Food was excellent - Sausage Baguette, and the Ploughmans between two people - and very reasonably priced. Would happily go back if in Sandwich again.

Lovely pub / restaurant next to the gate house in Sandwich. We visited early on a Saturday evening, having had a delightful walk around this quaint town. Pub interior is very atmospheric with hops decorating the beams etc. They serve an interesting Caribbean menu, alongside more traditional British fare - but go for the goat curry which is both spicy...

Very friendly pub, cask ale was in top condition, tried Caribbean Goat Curry for the first time and they took the trouble to explain how hot it would be, offered yoghurt to cool it down if necessary and landlady even came over when I was half way through it to ask what I thought as she had made it.

Ten of us (8 adults, a teenager and an 8yr old) had a Mothers' Day meal here last Sunday and it was very excellent. The staff were very friendly and accommodating, They provided a child's portion for our 8yr old and to my surprise, were more than happy to give me a smaller portion too as I cannot cope with...

Fabulously friendly staff and a home made steak and Stilton pie to die for - so much so that we bought a couple to take home with us. Nice ambience, good variety of beers and the coffees weren't a rip off which makes a change. Definitely coming back
