Sandy’s Beef and Ale has been an integral part of Bucks County since 1967. For over 50 years, Sandy’s has been providing communities with their classic ‘Sandywiches,’ great local beer, and a fun sports bar environment for all ages.

Voted Best Bar of Bucks in 2018, there’s a reason Sandy’s has become a staple for people
across the Langhorne community and beyond.

Dave Guindon and his family took over Sandy’s in 1983, after the original owner trained Dave extensively for months. Only 2 families have owned Sandy’s, and they both work endlessly to make their customers happy.

“We gotta listen to our customers,” owner Dave Guindon said.

And the sports tavern is still a hotspot for all teams Philly. Dave remembers clearly how people reacted when the Eagles won the Super Bowl.

“It was euphoria,” Dave said. “People just crying, like guys who had been watching games here for 15 years with all the heartache. Girls, guys everybody.”

A classic Sandy’s staple is the ‘Sandywich,’ which Dave described as a “door-stopper sized
sandwich made with love.”

“We go through 600 pounds of roast beef, 200 pounds of pork, and 100 pounds of ham every day,” Dave said. Sandy’s also offers healthy alternatives, such as oven roasted turkey, to cater to the customers watching what they eat, proving that they’re truly an establishment for everyone.

Sandy’s Beef and Ale also hosts WBCB’s High School Football Coaches Roundtable every week, and has been doing so for almost 20 years. They work for the community they serve, and work to give back to the people who give to them.

“We work with the Middletown Athletic Association, we sponsor the local YMCA, we donate to the United Way, and we hold raffles for Penn State’s Thon,” said Dave Guindon.
