6 of us visited the Sportmans in December for dinner. The menu is extensive and reasonably priced. Food was good quality and tasty for 5 of us. One had the sirloin steak which she found to be very fatty and not as good quality as the other meals so she didn't enjoy it. Staff were very friendly and accommodating and... More

Been there twice recently, one visit with the family to celebrate my birthday. On both occasions service was excellent and the food was great?

Went twice whilst staying at nearby Whitbarrow Village (Seasons). Both nights enjoyed lovely meals with lovely friends. House wine and great ale completed our choices. We would recommend the Black Pudding starter and as a main certainly go for the Cumberland Chicken or the Steak pie. If you get a chance and on the specials is either braised steak or... More

Called in on the off, I sat by a lovely roaring fire and ordered at the bar. I went for the Lasagne bolognaise, Onion Rings and Chips. I couldn't finish it as it was very filling, it was nice though I really enjoyed. Service was quick and the staff were friendly. The only thing that let it down was the... More

Normally here every month with mini club. Food is goid and reasonably priced. Meal on Thursday did take a little longer than normal to come and have had better meals (chips seemed back heat), but was still good. Side portion of garlic chiabata came with side salad and coleslaw. Service always with a smile.

Lovely lakeland pub. Friendly staff, great choice of food and drinks. Steak and ale pie is a must the gravy is devine. The Salmon was good but not the best locally. All in all worth a visit if your passing

I've been to the Sportsman four times now and each time I think to myself "today is the day I try something different" But what tends to happen is I walk in, grab a fine ale, take a seat and browse the menu. Suddenly someone else has ordered the Steak and Ale Pie. That's all it takes. Next thing I... More

Dear Lorenz32, Terry Pratchett said “Pride is all very well, but a sausage is a sausage.” ― Men at Arms He could equally have said this about PIES. 100% Lakeland beef, braised in Jenning Ale, seasoned, and encased in shortcrust pastry.......... What could possibly go wrong? All the Best and Thanks from the Pie Police at the Sportsman's More
