I have read previous reviews about The Sportsman and have my own opinion. This pub is the ideal walkers rest location, set just near the start of the trail for Kinder Scout, just far enough outside Hayfield village to be quietly off the well trodden track. The situation is charming, actually beautiful after the stresses of the city. It is... More

We stopped for a small libation be forcing doing the Kinder Scout walk. The pub is a great rendezvous point, but it seems dark and dinghy. It is as if it is making a good income from the local camp site and dies not need to try any harder. If this is the case, it is unfortunate, because with a... More

we stayed in the Sportsmans for two nights while working nearby. We very quickly renamed the landlord "Basil" as he obviously based his management style on Mr Fawlty. The beer was very expensive, the food although very average was incredibly expensive, my room, 3, was cold and damp, my friends room upstairs, had no loo or tv, the main saving... More

Having read the previous reviews I was a little apprehensive. Management of the inn is carried out by two people. We were greeted by Paul, who could not do enough for us and was ver helpful in advising us of the locality and things to do. I agree it is in need of updating but Paul told us that they... More

Having stayed for 2 nights on a groupon deal the room we stayed in(Rm 3) was adequate for what we needed,a place to put your head down. Having said that the room was in much need of a facelift. If only to change the mattress which after all needs to be comfortable after you've been walking miles in the day... More

We found the Sportsman badly in need of refurbishment. The various reviews we'd read were pretty accurate. The food was plentiful, the atmosphere OK - probably better if you could have found a table near the open fire, but they were always occupied by others. The rooms were clean and the beds comfortable, but the carpet was threadbare, and the... More

Having been to the Sportsman quite a few years ago for a meal, we decided to visit again having enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. However on returning it soon became clear that things were now different, having previously booked a table we presented ourselves on time at 8pm. the landlord showed us to our table which was at the...

We stopped on Saturday of the Bank Holiday for a meal with friends for a Saturday night it wasn't very busy buy at least we could get a table. The beer was ok but the food which is pricey compared to other places in the locality was very poor. I had a beef Beef bourguignon, well it wasn't what I... More

We did not like the service because the room should have been restored as there the carpet was thorn out. The food was pricey and not as good as it would be expected and the directions were not the best.

Stayed as a couple for two nights including breakfast, & meal on first night. Arrived early but as room was ready we were shown to it by the owner. As toilet was further down corridor he did ask if we would prefer an ensuite twin rather than a double. Room small but adequate for our needs, window overlooking trees with... More
