We had a Travelzoo voucher and went with friends. Sometimes these deals are not that great but this one was superb. The landlord was very welcoming and everything on the menu and specials board was included. The food and service were great. The place was buzzing and it is obvious that this pub is now a hit with the locals... More

Really good food very relaxed atmosphere and it won't break your bank. This is a relaxed bar resturant with food well above average great beer and a good wine list. It's not posh, a mish mash of oak tables and chairs you could easily spend all night chatting over dinner. The menu is good and the chef really knows what... More

Very friendly staff who made us feel welcome from the minute we arrived. Our room overlooked a fabulous view of the countryside and deer. We had a delicious dinner in the dining room with a blazing open fire and a lovely breakfast in the conservatory where there are binoculars for you to use to spot wildlife. I would recommend The...

Yesterday four of us had lunch at The Sportsman on a Travelzoo voucher. Nervous, as our friends were accustomed to fine dining, I am pleased to say we all thoroughly enjoyed the meal. It was tasty and well cooked, with good portion size, topped with terrific service and splendid views. Highly recommended.
