About Us

The Sculthorpe Aviator (previously known as ‘The Hourglass’) was taken on by the Owners of Sands Restaurant in Wells-next-the-Sea in late 2019.

The name is a nod to the nearby RAF base for which Sculthorpe is probably best known.

It was lovingly refurbished inside and out, and had just opened when the massive global events of 2020 pretty much stopped us in it stracks before it even got going.

Take Away & Collection

We are offering a takeaway and delivery service for SUNDAY LUNCH during lockdown, until we can open up and welcome you in the usual way once again.

We can deliver within a 5 mile radius of Sculthorpe (we have even invested in special insulated bags to keep your food hot).

Available Sundays 12noon – 5pm.

Safety Measures

We are also allowing collection and take away, but with allocated time slots so that no more than 1 person is in at any one time. we also have a one-way system in place.

Please stick to your time slot and let us know if you will be running late.


We have hand sanitiser and cleansing wipes for you after using the card machine. Cash is also accepted and our staff always wash their hands and sanitise after dealing with cash.

Thank you and keep safe.
