Popped in to the Sportsman for a couple of pints. The beers were nice and chilled but the atmosphere was lacking somewhat. OK for a local I guess.More

I don't think of the Sportsman as a Restaurant but it does lots of business with meals - since the refurb. We don't eat out except on rare occasions...but now there is one vegan dish. Nice but very small portion.
