We have eaten at the pub a few times now. The food is fantastic. One of the only pubs left who serve true home cooked food. The Sunday lunch is amazing. Even the puds are home made and are georgous! Very spoilt for choice. The staff are very friendly too. Highly recommended!

Fabulous food, entertaining hosts, vibrant atmosphere and eclectic music. The Sportsmans Arms is hands down pub of the year...if not every year! Add to that the various entertainment and constant immaculate service the positives of this fine establishment are beyond words. Must visit, excellent selection of beverage all round and fantastic menu!

We called at The Sportmans Arms recently for an evening meal. Mine host was welcoming and the pub was very clean and tidy, a typical english pub, or at least,how they should be.

Having conquered the Greek islands Wendy and Darren have returned home!!! The pub is unchanged but the food is the major addition! Home cooked English and Greek dishes make up an excellently priced menu. I am a great fan of Greek dishes and here we now have souvlaki kleftiko and even rabbit cooked in traditional Greek rustic style! Homemade tzaziki... More
