What can I say? We were staying at a nearby B&B, where we asked for somewhere to get dinner on the evening we arrived - The Sportsmans Arms was recommended. The bar was busy as they were showing the football, however they were very happy to seat us in the dining room where it was quieter and we were able... More

A party of 16 of us from Mount's Bay Girlguiding had a brilliant meal here last night. Nothing was too much trouble! The food was great and the Waitress - Lois - could not have been more helpful and attentive! THANKYOU everyone - we will be back!

Lunch at the Sportsman's Arms, with its top-quality pub grub, has long been a favourite of ours, but this was the first time we'd tried the evening menu. The experience exceeded already high expectations as we enjoyed restaurant-class cuisine, served in large portions, and at pub-grub prices, along with the usual friendly and efficient service. Compliments to the chef! A... More

What a fun and friendly place serving absolutely amazing food! definite compliments to the chef (or chefs!) Staff are all lovely and welcoming. Being out of town it isn't somewhere you would necessarily think to go but would definitely recommend a visit albeit for a drink or for some food. All in all a wonderful experience.
