We have visited the Sportsman a few times this summer, mainly due to their lovely new outdoor area which is great to sit in for a few drinks. Staff are very friendly.

It's nothing special, a lick of paint wouldn't go a miss in the function room, but you don't expect a local pub to be buckingham palace, the function room is big but if you're thinking of hiring it, make sure you can bring some decorations as its a bit gloomy.
