The Sandringham is a large and decent looking pub.
Once inside there is an L shaped room which is carpeted,there is comfy bench seating to the front and on the left side,the bar faces inwards,there is smaller room to the front right.
There was one real ale on the bar which was Courage Best,this was a decent drink.
I was happy enough having a drink in this pub.

There was a management change at the end of September 2012 with two experienced local lads now running the "Sange" as it's known locally.

A proper "locals pub", being near all the local amenities. Bus stop, Bakers, Chemist, Bookmakers, Post Office etc.

This in now the only pub or club selling Draught Bass, which is kept very well. There's also a guest real ale, John Smiths Smooth, Fosters, Kronenbourg, Draught Guinness as well as Thatcher's & Taunton Rough Cider.

After Blackthorn changed, it was replaced with Thatcher's Dry, which to many is now a better option. There are various other bottled ciders, mainly Thatchers, on offer too.

There is a Skittle alley & function room upstairs. Occasional live music on a Sunday afternoon. One of the few pubs in the area with Sky Sports TV, two Sky boxes and three big screen TV's.

This pub has what is probably the best enclosed beer garden in the Brislington area. There are Darts, Crib & Skittle teams as well.

Unfortunately, the other reviewer got it a bit wrong on the Real Ale.

Draught Bass is at the far end of the main bar served from a "Mirror Box" keg-style tap, transported via a "Flowjet" pump.
But it's Real Ale and they get through best part of 4 x 18 Gallon Barrels a week of the stuff. "Flat Bass" as it's supposed to be in the Bristol area.

Courage Best has now been replaced by a "rotating guest beer", which changes on a regular basis.

Still the best pub in the main part of Brislington and near all the amenities!
