Its a Carvery - A good Carvery

Booked a table of 19 here while staying with 3 other Families in the area. What do folk expect from a Carvery? What do you expect for the price?

Food was absolutely yummy with a wide variety of vegetables with the carvery and surroundings were lovely. From the outside, the Sportsmans Arms looks vey inviting. It looks as if the outside of the pub has been kept up with painting etc. which makes a lot of difference, as to whether you decide to eat there. Pub seem to be... More

Great food, wonderful steaks. Very busy and menu bit limited but what is provided is very good quality but very large portions. Staff friendly. Good night out.

Lovely family meal to end our holiday. Great choice of carvery or menu meals which were all served by friendly staff and of great quality. Atmosphere in pub was great, bustling and clearly a local favourite in addition to us tourists. Toilets the cleanest I have experienced in a long while-always a good sign!!

We visited this pub as we were staying at little Cotton Campsite. We didn't have the carvery although it looked very good. We chose from the menu and all four of us were delighted with our choices. Service and staff were very good.

Whilst on holiday staying in nearby accommodation, this was our local with great food in generous portions. The carvery is well worth it, again equally as generous with meat. The service is generally good and the environment is lovely to spend some time in after your meal when it's quiet. The views are lovely from the beer garden and in... More

A family group of eight including three children visited this pub for an evening carvery. Meal was great, bar service too. The children's play area was a big hit and extended the stay by a couple of hours. A really good way to finish a holiday visit to the coast.

Not far from Woodlands Theme Park, this pub offers good pub grub at a reasonable price and tastes lovely. They do a Carvery every day and not expensive at all. Would definately recommend this pub lovely people, lovely food.
