Fabulous boozer, visited as part of a crawl in Huddersfield a couple of weekends ago. 10 hand pulls at the bar (two of which were ciders), 8 keg taps and just felt like a proper decent pub with a good beer selection. It definitely was not as busy as it should have been.

This is a great looking pub, both inside and outside. A curved bar, lots of wood, good looking furniture, two small snugs at either end of the bar and 10 handpumps, what's not to like? Lots of interesting pictures and drawings on the wall including Huddersfield Town memorabilia. There was quiet background music playing during our visit, mainly Tamla & Northern Soul. My pint of True North Blonde was in very good nick. I'll definitely be calling in here again.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Sportsman

Corner pub with the curved bar counter opposite the front door and additional small rooms at either extremity (the Tap Room with local history photographs and an architect's drawing showing how the original layout was remodelled 85 years ago, the Smoke Room with a feature artwork above the mantelpiece). Plain but attractive 1930s furniture. Ten handpumps, offering eight - mostly local - real ales (including True North Blonde, £1.45 half) and two Pure North ciders (and another one on the keg taps). Excellent place.
