Thought I'd carry on some celebrations with friends by visiting my local after my kid's party. As expected, great atmosphere, music, drink selection. Bar staff friendly as usual, top lads. Only gripe with this place is how you have to pick up your own food, and the food doesn't compare to the sizzlers you get in other Indian pubs. I... More

This is a sports bar with an Indian barbecue. The Indian mixed grill is just £14 and could feed an army. The beer is cheap too

The surroundings are not much to look at but if you love Indian food at a very reasonable price then this is def the place to go. You can watch the chef cooking your food and the food is amazing. I have been over ten times now and have never had a bad meal.

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

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
