Superlative pub grub and Colin The Chef's onion rings are utterly scrumptious. Great choice of beers, cracking atmosphere.

After completing a fantastic walk on the Snake trail, we finished the loop at The Sportsman. Our lunches were fantastic! My 'black & blue' burger was possibly the best burger I've ever tasted! My children had bacon & Brie paninis, my wife had steak wrap. All thoroughly recommended Best food in the village?

I chose the steak, ale and mushroom pie which was delicious. There was plenty of lean steak in the deep filled pie. It came with... More
