Sportsman Inn Pub Reviews
Carl Bradwell - 08/05/2011
Visited the pub last night as the designated driver. Asked for a pint of shandy. I watched in disbelief as the bar person filled a pint glass 75% full of lemonade and then had the cheek to top it up with approximately 20% of beer. Is this the modern day equivalent of watering the beer down to make it go further?
No wonder the pub was empty at 9:30PM. If they are doing this with a shandy what are doing with the rest of the beer?
When I used to work behind the bar a pint of shandy was 50/50 and still tasted like a pint of beer, not a pint of p***.

Just come back from the Sportsman Inn. Took my daughter for her 17th birthday lunch. It cost me £12.00 for 2 fish and chips with peas and two large glasses of Coke. The meal was lovely, worth every penny. Looking forward to going again.
