Restaurant description

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.

    Excellent food and service. Bit disappointed with gap between main meal and dessert. Still give it 9 out of 10 and will certainly go there again.

    Service was a bit slow due to being busy and is in no way a reflection on the staff who were very courteous and helpful, maybe more staff required at busy times, that said the food was lovely and we had a nice time.
