The Sandford Pub has been transformed into one of the region’s very best dining destinations. In 2014 an enthusiastic group took over the historic pub with the goal of restoring it to its former glory – a target they have achieved and surpassed. The Sandford Pub, on Wareham Road, showcases the very best local Dorset ingredients they can find through a range of innovative, contemporary British dishes. Of course The Sandford Pub is still a local watering hole, with a great selection of cask ales, wines and spirits, but the restaurant is what really kicks it up a level compared to other pubs around Wareham. Perhaps the time to see The Sandford Pub’s culinary prowess at its best is for Sunday lunch, when each week they put on a classic British roast (be it hog roast, chicken, gammon or beef) with all the trimmings – bookings are essential on Sundays. Swing by any other time of the week, though, and you’re assured a great menu of British classics given a bit of a spruce up.
This was our second meal there, and neither disappointed. Lovely friendly staff and scrumptious meal, that's why we've booked our annual dinner in January with them.
I decided to chance the char-grilled steak (I've ordered steak at other establishments & been disappointed). Not today! Juicy, tender and the triple-fry chips were perfect. The fact it is a dog-friendly pub made it even better for us. Definitely recommend for food, ambience & extremely friendly service.
Charming staff and outstanding food. Nothing was too much trouble as one of the party has severe food allergies. The steaks were amazing. Thank you and well done.
