Previously a charming old farmhouse, The Sandpiper near Ormskirk is a classic country pub, with an open and spacious design, serving an accomplished menu of British favourites. With sociable round tables, soft cushions and deep armchairs, The Sandpiper values comfort, also seen in the cosy hearth and bright outdoor seating for summer dining.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Sandpiper menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while The Sandpiper ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.

Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

At just 7 minutes’ driving into Ormskirk, The Sandpiper Bickerstaffe is a secluded country haven.

    A lovely warm atmosphere with the fire burning and very helpful and friendly staff. It made my sister's birthday lunch special and memorable.

    Generally good - we'd been before, and were meeting friends with a new baby, hence the need for a high chair ! Food excellent, service not so good, as our poor waitress seemed at times to be doing it all on her own. Dominic the manager was serving behind the bar, and another young man was coordinating service, but
    we had long waits between courses, which at least gave us lots of time to catch up with our friends. Still, probably only eight out of ten for the experience.

    Second visit, ended up getting the same food as it was outstanding the first time (yes, outstanding) the chicken was unbelievably good. Like that Richmond advert years ago but with chicken. Like Chicken richmond but good. I think everyone else enjoyed I was too busy having a life montage with every mouthful. Belting I will definitely be back to have something else (probably not, chicken pie everyday)

    Food was excellent however, service was poor, table was booked yet we waited 15 mins to be seated. Waitress was rude when asked for a glass for the bottle of apple juice she brought, she replied OK. I will just have to grow another arm, then when I asked for French mustard she said we only have English do you want it or not. Understand they were busy but no need to be rude
