Just like the previous reviewers, we found the pub could do with some money spending on it - we also stayed in room 3, which was the smallest room we've ever stayed in. My first impression was 'Get me out of here!' but I'm glad we persisted. The bed was comfy and clean, and the evening meal was exceptional (though...

On arrival we found out our booking was for the day after but the landlord was happy to accommodate us without a fuss. The beer garden was beautifully sunny and the surrounding environment is stunning. Had a fabulous meal and really enjoyed our stay which was excellent value for money. Will definitely return to the area again and would stay...

I have read previous reviews about The Sportsman and have my own opinion. This pub is the ideal walkers rest location, set just near the start of the trail for Kinder Scout, just far enough outside Hayfield village to be quietly off the well trodden track. The situation is charming, actually beautiful after the stresses of the city. It is...

We stopped for a small libation be forcing doing the Kinder Scout walk. The pub is a great rendezvous point, but it seems dark and dinghy. It is as if it is making a good income from the local camp site and dies not need to try any harder. If this is the case, it is unfortunate, because with a...

we stayed in the Sportsmans for two nights while working nearby. We very quickly renamed the landlord "Basil" as he obviously based his management style on Mr Fawlty. The beer was very expensive, the food although very average was incredibly expensive, my room, 3, was cold and damp, my friends room upstairs, had no loo or tv, the main saving...

Having read the previous reviews I was a little apprehensive. Management of the inn is carried out by two people. We were greeted by Paul, who could not do enough for us and was ver helpful in advising us of the locality and things to do. I agree it is in need of updating but Paul told us that they...

Having stayed for 2 nights on a groupon deal the room we stayed in(Rm 3) was adequate for what we needed,a place to put your head down. Having said that the room was in much need of a facelift. If only to change the mattress which after all needs to be comfortable after you've been walking miles in the day...

We found the Sportsman badly in need of refurbishment. The various reviews we'd read were pretty accurate. The food was plentiful, the atmosphere OK - probably better if you could have found a table near the open fire, but they were always occupied by others. The rooms were clean and the beds comfortable, but the carpet was threadbare, and the...

“All rooms are on the first floor but not all en-suite. If you are sensitive to noise and like an early night, avoid the room over the pub.”
