We like to go out for something to eat at least once a week and often visit the Sportsman, mainly because for a local pub the food and service seldom disappoints and is reasonably priced.

we only went for a few drinks, which worked very well for a Saturday afternoon. Large pubs with lots of people/families eating and food looked good. Staff helpful and accomodating.

Took my wife's 98 year old Grandma out to lunch at the Sportsman. The staff were really accommodating and helpful. The meal arrived and it was superb. The price was also reasonable. Superb place to eat and will definitely be returning

Popped in to the Sportsman for a couple of pints. The beers were nice and chilled but the atmosphere was lacking somewhat. OK for a local I guess.More

I don't think of the Sportsman as a Restaurant but it does lots of business with meals - since the refurb. We don't eat out except on rare occasions...but now there is one vegan dish. Nice but very small portion.
