One of my mates swears by this place and regularly eats there at lunch times during the week. Occasionally I'll be dragged along too. It mostly concentrates on Indian cuisine and does a good pub version. Lots of variety, big portions and tastey but often well done. The place itself feels a bit tired inside with a very 70's- 80's...

I came here with some of my mates hoping to enjoy a few pints and a mixed grill. Instead I had a disastrous night out and had to go to a chippy on my way home. The food was very burnt and had no taste whatsoever. Whilst eating my food, I was sworn at by a group of lads for... More

you'd think when your paying ridiculous amount of money for a mixed grill it will be nice, but no. Extremely burnt and horrible, i was shocked that they even serve this stuff. The atmosphere was unwelcoming as we got dirty looks throughout the night, wouldn't recommend this pub to anyone.

Sportsman was probably the first place my old man took me for to get a bite to eat back in the early 90's (apart from McDonalds). I have been to the Sportsman probably once/twice a month for the last 20 years. It hasnt changed much during this time. The food is great, the service is a little nonchalant but the... More

Being a massive curry and mix grill fan, i thought ill give the food a go. After previously visiting the pub for just a drink there was no lasting impression but ill thought ill give it another shot. With my expectations not set very high anyway i was further disappointed by the extremely burnt mixed grill, tasteless. boring, never catch... More
