    Visited the Sportsman pub today with my wife.

    We both ordered mushroom starters, which when they arrived had obviously been re-heated. They were tough and cool. We sent them back and received a fresh starter. My main meal - beef burger - was totally inedible, tough and burnt. I left the burger and the chips.

    The waiting staff were very good and no blame attached to them.

    However, the management need to be aware that poorly cooked food should not leave the kitchen and should never be served to paying customers.

    Also very disappointing that the only staff to show concern were the young waiting staff.

    I had been told that the food at the Sportsman was not up to standard, I won't be eating there again.

    Good pub. Good food. Good staff. Yes... nothing fancy food wise and has that chain feel about it... but... has got what you want pub grub wise!

    I had one of their salads recently, as I'm dieting, and they did good. No bread on the side to compensate, just a really good meal/salad.

    My first time I went in was with my mum, and had a great meal (proper pub grub). Good value. Good service.

    I went in there on my own as a single (female) to meet others and didn’t feel odd (like you do occasionally when you arrive earlier than everyone else). I will definitely be going again soon.

    Just had a meal at the Sportsman Inn, S10. Really was one of the worst meals I have had.

    Made a selection from both the main menu and the specials for four people and considering the price difference there really was no difference in the quality of the food. All our four meals were bland and tasteless.

    I don't normally write any reviews but was really disappointed with this food. The coffee was missed at the end of the meals even though these were included, but to be honest we just paid the bill and left.

    I could have cooked and presented food better myself with one hand tied behind my back... will not be going back and stick to our normal lunches at S11.

    This pub used to have fabulous food, what a shame.

    We booked a party for approximately 17 persons on Tuesday 27th September for 12 noon.

    We were disappointed to find that there had been no preparation regarding seating arrangements, and only saw two bar persons, who coped very well with the stress that they were under. When I commiserated I was told that they were not usually busy Tuesday lunchtimes - but we made a booking?

    Food was good, and no other complaints, but surely the reason for booking is to ensure a stress-less environment for customers and staff, especially customers who are eating in their lunch hour. Or as long as you are getting our money do you really care?

    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.
