Stopped for a quick bite to eat following a trip round the local National Trust Garden

Excellent service, good selection of Real Ales and great lunchtime pub grub, much cheaper than the NT Tea Room. Very nice experience

Lunch at the Sportsman's Arms, with its top-quality pub grub, has long been a favourite of ours, but this was the first time we'd tried the evening menu. The experience exceeded already high expectations as we enjoyed restaurant-class cuisine, served in large portions, and at pub-grub prices, along with the usual friendly and efficient service. Compliments to the chef! A... More

What a fun and friendly place serving absolutely amazing food! definite compliments to the chef (or chefs!) Staff are all lovely and welcoming. Being out of town it isn't somewhere you would necessarily think to go but would definitely recommend a visit albeit for a drink or for some food. All in all a wonderful experience.

lovely welcoming pub/restaurant. Waiting staff could not have worked harder to accommodate our party of 11 ladies of a certain age - no mean feat but wonderful service! Food all came out together for our large party and everyone enjoyed their choice of meal. Very good prices too. Brilliant night out.

We visited this public house last week for lunch and my parents had the ale pie and Spanish omelette which they both enjoyed very much and the portion sizes were very good. My daughter and I only had starters/lite bites - soup and sticky ribs and again both were delicious and good sized portions. We will definitely be going back... More

Food was very good, and very generous portions without losing any quality! If you go for the cheese platter be prepared that there's enough for 4 people to have as a cheese course (after dinner) or two for a lunch! Delicious though...
