Ate here one evening, typical pub food, there were 9 of us and the food served was not of a good standard, expensive for what we had. However they did take off the bill the burnt sticky toffee pudding received as desert!

A very windy and miserable day, add pre Christmas shopping, you need a delicious lunch,to cheer one, we booked a turkey meal and we arrived flustered and damp to be greeted by cheery smiling staff. The roast and veg were cooked to perfection, the gravy a superb taste, and they happily served us an extra boat on request. We would... More

We fancied a bite to eat after a day at Woodlands Leisure Park and the Sportsmans Arms is fairly close by. Got there at 4.30pm and asked about a table to be told they were fully booked but we could have a table as long as we were gone by 7.30pm. This suited us as food was served from 5.30pm... More
