Will Larter left this review about The Sports Bar

This place was refurbished, with old signage for "Charles Campbell", "Established 1840" and "Caledonian Bar" either discovered or faked. (Portland Street used to be called Caledonian Street.) A premises licence for The Caledonian Inn, 24 Portland Place was obtained in April 2119, but I can't find any information online about it actually operating as a bar. It looks very smart, with pictures backing the window panes on the front, including Humphrey Bogart (as Sam Spade in the Maltese Falcon).

The Sports Bar lost its licence for 4 months at a licencing court hearing on 26 January 2010.

After an appeal to the Sheriff Court the Sports Bar had its licence reinstated on 15 February 2010.
